Adding another leading local elected official to the list of those opposing Measure A, Orange County Supervisor Shawn Nelson has announced his opposition to the measure as detrimental to Buena Park and a costly, ill-conceived attempt at directing city public policy.
“As someone who represents and who grew up in the City of Buena Park, I am very concerned about the consequences of having such a misleading, poorly-written and flawed measure enacted into law. It will negatively affect the lives and livelihood of Buena Park residents and business owners,” Nelson commented.
“After reviewing Measure A, I’ve concluded that it would not only impose a costly and unreasonable requirement for development, but constitutes a clear infringement on the rights of private property owners. It would clearly be disruptive and detrimental to any efforts to improve Buena Park’s economy. I urge voters to vote no on Measure A”, he concluded.
Other leading members of the opposition to Measure A include Mayor Art Brown and Mayor Pro Tem Fred Smith as well as Councilmembers Beth Swift and Virginia Vaughn, State Assemblymember Young Kim, Orange County Supervisor Michelle Park Steel, the West Orange County Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Orange County Taxpayers Association, and the Orange County Business Council as well as the Orange County Register.
