In her inaugural address as chairwoman of the Orange County Board of Supervisors, Harriett M. Wieder challenged the growing ranks of slow-growth advocates in her county. In reality, she is responding to their challenge, which is in the form of a ballot initiative.
Among other statements, the initiative says loud and clear that we have had it with a representative government that has proven time and time again that it cannot keep up with growth issues in the county.
Please, hear the voices and heed the signatures on the petitions, Mrs. Wieder. Address the serious problems such as freeway gridlock, overcrowding in schools and brown air rather than skirmishing with those who are trying to salvage what is left of a quality of life that has drawn the crowds to Orange County.
