Bedwell too extreme

Drew Bedwell is one of the key proponents of Measure D, the developer’s compensation initiative. Mr. Bedwell once said, “I’m too radical,” when conservative activists left his group, PYPR (The Union, May 21).

Well, he is once again showing his extreme radicalism. Measure D will threaten our ability to plan properly for growth. Proponents have said that even fire-safe plans would be considered as unacceptable limitation on development potential which could be used by a developer to claim reimbursement from the County General Fund under Measure D.

Our county needs mainstream politics, not this form of extreme politics.
