According to Supervisor Boyd, “We have to deal with the transportation issue in this county. We can’t just keep growing and not build any roads.” [“Albemarle road race,” August 2] For years his has been the loudest voice on the Board of Supervisors in favor of rapid and rampant development, with only a rare reference to burgeoning transportation problems. Has Mr. Boyd had a conversion experience, or is this simply another case of Mr. Boyd changing his mind on an important issue for purposes of convenience?
