WEST ORANGE CHAMBER AND WEST ORANGE POLITICAL ALLIANCE JOIN FORCES TO OPPOSE AMENDMENT 4
comments | Read Comments
The West Orange Chamber of Commerce (WOCC) and West Orange Political Alliance (W.O.P.A.) support Floridians for Smarter Growth to oppose the anti-growth initiative known as Amendment 4.
The boards of the WOCC and W.O.P.A. had previously adopted resolutions to oppose the Hometown Democracy petition gathering initiative. However, due to the aid of paid petition gatherers, the initiative will be on the 2010 ballot. It will appear on the ballot as Amendment 4. If approved, this amendment will have Floridians “voting for everything” including issues of land use, stifling the process and bring development to a standstill which is much needed at this time.
WOCC and W.O.P.A have a clear understanding of the importance of smart growth for our state and our region. Therefore, based on this knowledge, both organizations are lending their names and support to the growing list of Floridians that oppose Amendment 4.
“The WOCC and W.O.P.A. will work together closely to educate our members and residents of West Orange on why a “NO” vote on Amendment 4 is crucial to the economic growth of our region and state”, said Stina D’Uva, WOCC President and W.O.P.A. Ex-officio member. “The passage of this amendment would only worsen and likely never allow us to recover from the current economic crisis.”
The West Orange community is growing and evolving everyday. The West Orange Chamber is dedicated to showcasing the integrity and professional interests of our members and is proud to represent our community at both the local and state levels.
The West Orange Political Alliance is a non-profit, non-partisan organization formed in December 1997 to provide an active political voice in the interests of West Orange County. WOPA is governed by a set of by-laws approved by Florida’s Division of Elections.
