Mandate for Slow Growth

November 08, 1987

Your Oct. 28 edition reported Supervisor Harriett Wieder's suggestion of a poll to ask voters "whether they would be willing to pay higher taxes and change their working hours to ease traffic congestion and improve air quality."

Another bureaucratic absurdity! Slow-growth groups are filing initiatives in many Orange County cities. Instead of viewing this action by grass-roots organizations as a mandate to slow the rate of development, Supervisor Weider wants us to change our life styles, family life, and pay more money so that development can continue to flourish in our communities.

Thank goodness we still have the right to vote!
