Measuring the supes

July 18, 1995

Byline: The Orange County Register

One reason OCTA officials might be especially eager to get an "exploration" of an
airport transfer underway, quickly, is precisely so they can hurriedly "encumber"
Measure M monies _ for airport purchase _ and thereby scuttle the Pringle
proposal to get some of those dollars for bankruptcy assistance.

As for why some of the supervisors seem so willing to be led by their nose rings
on this matter, well, one word tells a lot: Cronyism. Mr. Stanton and Mr. Oftelie
have had their own longstanding mutual back-massaging society, and Supervisors Gaddi Vasquez and
Bill Steiner seem to enjoy the rubdowns as well. Supervisor Jim Silva, in contrast,
keeps a safe distance from these tribal rites (and, indeed, has been pushing the
cause of redirecting Measure M money for a bankruptcy workout).
