I wholeheartedly agree with the article by Ann Notthoff and Trent W. Orr (Editorial Pages, Dec. 4) concerning Gov. Deukmejian's decisions regarding California's coastline and specifically the governor's devious games of saying one thing but doing the opposite. Gov. Deukmejian is certainly not a friend of preserving our environment, yet in public he claims that he is. Just as he does not care one bit about protecting us from toxic waste, but in public again he says he is "doing everything to protect Californians from these problems."
Deukmejian also recently made some statements that "he will not tolerate any farm workers living in trees and caves"--facts that have been brought out by Cesar Chavez, Bishop Mahoney, as well as others--yet he does nothing to stop these practices and simply tolerates these conditions. Just as Deukmejian in public says he wants to "defend our coastline", yet in private is attempting to dismantle any and all agencies concerned with this protection, so has he played double games with the farm worker's problems--while he says he "wants to protect and be fair about the farm workers"--he assigns Dave Stirling as legal counsel of the state's Agricultural Relations Boards, who is very biased against farm workers and Cesar Chavez in particular, to head that troubled agency.
