Measure A Sparks Debate Over Growth and County's Future

June 05, 1988

Orange County developers are spending millions against Proposition 68, a measure that will limit campaign spending.

Orange County developers are spending millions against Measure A, a measure that will make development (not the taxpayer) pay its way in Orange County.

Orange County developers are spending millions for Proposition 72, a measure that will shift billions of dollars from our schools, aid for senior citizens and other state agencies to a special highway fund for opening up undeveloped land in Orange County.

Orange County developers spent millions in 1984 to raise taxes in order to open up undeveloped land in the county.

Orange County developers want the taxpayer, not the developer, to pay the cost of development, and they intend to control campaigns and candidates through their pocketbooks. Orange County's voters need to keep these facts in mind as they read the developers' "hit pieces" and clever campaign ads in the next few days and as they vote Tuesday.
