The reference in the Times article ("Growth is Key Issue in 2 City Council Races," Nov. 1) on next week's election referred to Ed Struiksma and Bob Trettin as "conservative," with the implication that Abbe Wolfsheimer and Linda Bernhardt are therefore "liberal." I think it is time to redefine our terms. "Conservative" means keeping things as they are. Who better exemplifies that--the Bulldozer Eds, with the mowing down and building bigger and more structures, or those who want to see managed growth, with attention paid to the way we live.

Mayor Maureen O'Connor and City Councilman Ed Struiksma on Wednesday unveiled dual plans to drastically restrict the rate of growth they say is overwhelming streets, sewers and other municipal services in burgeoning neighborhoods. O'Connor's proposal would scale back the rate of growth to population forecasts made in 1984, which would reduce growth by at least 60% in some northern areas.

The Harbor Police should be merged with the San Diego Police Department as part of the city's "war on drugs," two City Council members urged Wednesday. Ed Struiksma and Gloria McColl said in a morning press conference that the current 85-member force, which polices San Diego Bay and the airport for the San Diego Unified Port District, is ill-equipped to combat the flow of drugs into the city. San Diego representatives will bring up the proposal at the July 11 meeting of the Port Commission, Struiksma said.

Reneging on a promise it made more than 14 months ago, the San Diego City Council on Monday refused to place a package of 13 recommendations from its appointed Charter Review Commission before the city's voters. The 5-3 vote drew a sharp reaction from Ed Butler, the retired state Appeal Court justice who served as chairman of the commission. "They are apparently people without honor," a visibly angered Butler said in an interview after the meeting. "To an eighth-grade civics class, I would have difficulty explaining that they voted how they did when we undertook a year's effort based on their commitment."

Floyd Morrow's backing of Linda Bernhardt gives a victory sign for Linda in November. After a disappointing defeat, it takes a really fine person to step forward so soon and endorse a former opponent. Floyd has always had his heart in the right place, and San Diego City Councilman Ed Struiksma should realize that Floyd's love and concern for Linda Vista and Clairemont will bring the voters out. Floyd has seen Linda grow with leadership capabilities that have surprised everyone. His endorsement gives us hope, and, if everyone gets out and works for Linda, we can end the reign of big money.

The San Diego City Council voted Tuesday to place 34 units of low-income public housing on Fulton Street in Linda Vista despite strong objections from District 5 City Councilman Ed Struiksma that the housing counteracts years of effort to attract high-income projects to the neighborhood. The 34 units were part of a 50-unit, $4.1-million public housing package that will be financed primarily by the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development.
