Merced residents should decide the direction and future of Merced County, not outside carpetbaggers. The Merced Alliance for Responsible Growth, for example, is nothing more than a proxy by union interests to hobble Wal-Mart. Does anyone in Merced know a MARG member personally?
The only information I could Google on them leads to San Francisco addresses and no means of contact. You would think that a genuine Merced-based interest group would actively recruit members from the local community, wouldn't you?
