Ed Adkison has some advice for any Riverside residents unhappy with the passage of rooster-rousting Measure A.
"Eat more beef," said the former city councilman, who sponsored the ballot proposition.
By a 2-1 margin, voters Tuesday decided to restrict rooster ownership to seven birds per property -- down from 50 -- and require them to be kept in sound-muffling structures from sunset to sunrise.
The measure was aimed in part at cockfighting.
"It will certainly improve the quality of life here," Adkison said Wednesday.
Meanwhile, a newly created city council in the Riverside County town of Wildomar was in the market for a top administrator.
More than 60% of voters cast ballots Tuesday in favor of incorporating Wildomar, while electing the first five-member council. They also opted to conduct future council elections by district, rather than at large.
"Wildomar has wanted its own identity and to be a city for a long, long time," said Marsha Swanson, one of the council winners. "The first thing we need to do is find a city manager."
Also elected from the 14-candidate field were Bob Cashman, Bridgette Moore, Scott Farnam and Sheryl Ade. The council takes office July 1.
Swanson said the start-up should go smoothly because "we all get along."
