Re "Supervisors failing to act," Column, May 20

Finally, someone is calling for real reform of Los Angeles County government. The fact that the assessor and the sheriff are elected by voters is just part of the problem.

A complete overhaul of county government can only be achieved with a review by an elected commission of voters, not politicians. The county is simply unable to reform itself. It needs an elected executive, a bigger Board of Supervisors and an assessor and a sheriff who serve at the pleasure of the executive.

The Board of Supervisors fails to reflect the electorate's diversity and is a relic of an old boy's network that needs to be replaced by a much larger legislative body that actually represents the county.
