Anaheim Mayor Tom Daly and his opponent, Councilman Bob Zemel, traded political barbs Thursday during their last debate before residents decide who will lead Orange County's second-largest city. The forum, sponsored by the Women's Division of the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce, had barely begun when Daly declared: "My opponent is a dishonest person . . . an extremist politician. He's bad for Anaheim."

The mayors of Orange County's two largest cities handily fought off challenges by scrappy members of their city councils, including one councilman who continued campaigning while under federal indictment on political corruption charges. Miguel A. Pulido Jr. of Santa Ana and Tom Daly of Anaheim were winning decisive victories Tuesday over their respective opponents, Ted R. Moreno and Bob Zemel. Both contests capped years of bitter rivalry on the councils.

I think the citizens of Anaheim deserve a public explanation from the new City Council majority (Mayor Tom Daly, Councilmen Irv Pickler and Frank Feldhaus) for an action that deprived our city of one of its finest public servants. The recent ouster of Bob Zemel from the Planning Commission was an outrage. Not only has Mr. Zemel been punished, but everyone who had grown to respect our city's Planning Commission because of his independent presence has been punished as well. Those of us who seek to take pride in our local government were very comfortable with Bob Zemel's service to the city.

Anaheim Councilman Bob Zemel withdrew Thursday his bid to become the Republican nominee to face Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Santa Ana) in November and endorsed former Rep. Robert K. Dornan. Zemel called upon the four remaining Republican hopefuls to back Dornan who lost to Sanchez in 1996 by 984 votes. Dornan claimed the margin came from non-citizens who voted for Sanchez, but his attempt to have the election overturned failed in the House of Representatives.

The author of Orange County's first campaign financing reform law contended Tuesday that Anaheim Councilman Bob Zemel violated state and city laws by using money from the wrong campaign committees to further his bid for mayor this fall. Shirley Grindle of Orange sent her formal complaint to the state Fair Political Practices Commission, which oversees election law matters, and sought prompt action because of Zemel's current challenge to Mayor Tom Daly.

A taxpayer group served Councilmen Lou Lopez and Bob Zemel with recall notices Tuesday, accusing the two of hiring an independent prosecutor for their political gain. The action came after an effort by Councilwoman Shirley McCracken to reconsider the contract of independent prosecutor Ravi Mehta failed for lack of a second. Lopez and Zemel voted to hire Mehta in September.

While the article "Shelter Sets Off Storm" (July 12) was well-balanced and fair, it may have left readers with the impression that more than a few residents were opposed to the Eli Home shelter going into Anaheim Hills. In fact, the number of upset homeowners is quite small. Many of my neighbors and friends in Anaheim Hills are quite pleased that a caring and well-run organization like the Eli Home will be able to enhance its services by moving to our community. As a longtime Anaheim Hills resident, co-founder and past president of the Anaheim Hills Citizens' Coalition, I can assure readers that the Eli Home project is well-supported here.

Ralph Reed, the man who spent eight years fashioning the Christian Coalition into a potent political force, will inaugurate his new role as a Republican political consultant with the 1998 bid by Anaheim City Councilman Bob Zemel to unseat Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Garden Grove). Reed's involvement in the exploratory campaign is proof of the national interest in the central Orange County seat, which Sanchez won in a stunning upset last year from entrenched conservative Republican Rep. Robert K.

On the strength of her incumbency and the relative anonymity of her opponents, U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer holds a commanding lead in her race for reelection, easily defeating her Republican opponents in projected November matchups, the Los Angeles Times Poll has found. On the strength of his self-financed advertising campaign, car alarm magnate Darrell Issa has emerged at the top of the GOP field for the June primary, inching out state Treasurer Matt Fong.

Darrell Issa is discussing the market value of intimidation. His business, after all, is fortifying the autos of America. "A guy violates your car," he says, "you want something ferocious, one step removed from vengeance." And so his line of car alarms fairly bristles with menace. There is the Viper, the Rattler, the Python, the Wasp and the Hornet. The brand names all tap the same feral instinct to strike out. Collectively, they have made Issa one very, very rich man.
