I got this in my mailbox yesterday. Â Moorlach is at it again – picking the most trivial, money wasting, time wasting project to concentrate on. Â What is it going to take to get some one on the Supes that has a clue about the economy, building jobs, attracting business, fixing schools. Â Will this ever stop? Why can’t Moorlach take up knitting and just LEAVE US ALONE!!!!!!
For immediate release
From Professor Mario Mainero, Chief of Staff, Office of Supervisor John Moorlach
Immediate Elimination of Left Turns
Supervisor John Moorlach has announced he will bring forth a resolution at the next Orange County Board of Supervisors meeting which will eliminate all left turns on county-maintained streets.Â Moorlach’s staff estimates it will take approximately 14 months to remark and resignal all of the effected intersections in the county.
Supervisor Moorlach said, “Allowing our residents, particularly those who are young and have just received their licenses, to turn left at county paid intersections sends the wrong message.Â Our residents will receive the right message now – go straight or turn to the right.” Â
The change to intersections was caused by a call Moorlach received from a constituent who said he was surprised that a turn to the left was paid for by the County.Â Moorlach had his staff investigate and was shocked to learn that the County had paid for both marking and signaling many left turns within the County. Â
Moorlach stated, ” I was shocked to find out County taxpayer dollars were funding moving to left.Â When I turn into the County garage, I always turn right and I feel staff lied to me because they did not make me aware that if I was driving the other way down Civic Center Drive, I would have to turn left to get into the garage.”
The item will appear on the April 6, 2009 agenda.Â The Orange County Board of Supervisors meets atÂ 9:30 AM at 10 Civic Center Plaza in Santa Ana, CA.
