Your editorial welcoming the governor's appointment of Gaddi H. Vasquez to the 3rd District Board of Supervisor's seat was appropriate and timely. The governor had several very qualified people to choose among and, naturally, each had their own supporters. Given the choices, it would have been irresponsible to leave the seat open any longer than necessary. Though a young man, Vasquez is wise for his years and all who know him recognize his natural leadership abilities. Vasquez trained under two proven problem-solvers, Bruce Nestande and George Deukmejian, and brings their type of moderate, people-oriented decision making to a seat that desperately needs it. We in the 3rd District are fortunate to have a governor like Deukmejian who provides us a supervisor like Vasquez.

After nine months of campaigning for the job of lieutenant governor, Bruce Nestande, a Republican supervisor from Orange County, made a mid-course correction Thursday: he announced he would run for secretary of state this June instead. Nestande, who at 48 was making his first bid for statewide office, said the decision was forced on him because an unusually strict Orange County campaign ordinance hindered him in raising the $4 million he would have needed to campaign for lieutenant governor.

Clark said he "would never mix his personal life with the people he has got to do business with." Supervisor Thomas F. Riley says about the Nestande affair: "I am always conscious of this type of thing.

Embattled Orange County tollway chief John Meyer resigned Thursday, explaining that he is "burned out" and fed up with hostile landowners who complain about project delays but offer "no solutions."
