O ur readers wrote letters throughout 1988 expressing their viewpoints on a variety of issues. Here are condensed versions of some of those letters. We appreciate their taking the time to share their viewpoints and look forward to hearing from you in 1989. To vote or not to vote? That was the question Orange County voters faced Nov. 8.

To vote, or not to vote? That was the question Orange County voters faced Nov. 8. That question became difficult in the 72nd Assembly District when the Orange County Republican Party sent uniformed security guards to 20 Santa Ana precincts to intimidate Hispanic voters. This action was taken supposedly to discourage non-citizens from attempting to vote. In reality, this was a carefully planned effort to discourage the large number of newly registered Hispanic Democrats from voting. As a registered Republican, even I am amazed at how bold our leaders have become.

The Times is correct in its editorial ("Yes on 100, No on 103," Oct. 27). If voters do not pass auto insurance reform this year we will never get reform.

The death of Assemblyman Richard E. Longshore (R-Santa Ana) the day after he won the Republican primary June 7 set the stage for the heated general-election contest being waged for the open seat in the 72nd Assembly District. The candidates are Democrat Christian F. (Rick) Thierbach, who ran unopposed in the primary, and Curt Pringle, a vice chairman of the county Republican Central Committee, which selected him as the GOP nominee, replacing Longshore on the ballot.

Assembly Democrats in Sacramento usually do not turn their eyes toward heavily Republican Orange County when they look for target races in election years. But this year is different. There, in the middle of the county, is the 72nd Assembly District, which Democrats believe they can win.

Republican Assembly candidate Curt Pringle, in a stinging political mailer sent this week to thousands of voters, portrays his Democratic opponent, Christian F. (Rick) Thierbach, as a political opportunist whose primary residence is outside the district. The mailer, featuring a caricature of Thierbach toting a suitcase and a headline that reads, "Outsider Rick Thierbach is shopping again for elective office," was sent to 78,500 voters in the 72nd Assembly District and began arriving Thursday.

It was to be F. Christian (Rick) Thierbach's big moment, a chance for the Democratic candidate in the 72nd Assembly District to get some publicity from the horde of local and national reporters assembled in Buena Park. Thierbach, locked in a tight race with Republican Curt Pringle for the Central Orange County Assembly seat, had been tabbed to introduce his party's leading man, presidential nominee Michael Dukakis, at a rally of 1,500 Democratic volunteers in a union hall.
