Re Measure A, the traffic initiative:
I am a developer who, like all developers, is aware of, and hurt by, traffic and environmental problems.
I am a developer, like all developers, who is earnestly seeking constructive and affirmative answers.
I am a family man with children who want a better world.
I am a concerned citizen and taxpayer who wants a meaningful answer to problems whose roots lie far beyond my industry.
My close-up look tells me the beginning and end of all this is in the amazing growth of affluence in America that creates an overwhelming demand for more houses, more cars, more skis, more clothes--more of anything, and everything.
