I commend Mayor Andy Fox of Thousand Oaks for his adroit game of chess. After incorporating Planning Commissioner Linda Parks' initiative into a city ordinance, he introduced his own initiative to undermine the Parks initiative-ordinance. The mayor checkmated Commissioner Parks and City Councilwomen Elois Zeanah and Jaime Zukowski with his initiative. He won his round of chess, but he lost to the broader game on the horizon--public trust. SAMUEL M. ROSEN Newbury Park

Councilwoman Elois Zeanah should be ashamed of herself for attempting to use tax dollars to televise the activities of her political action group, Citizens Q of L Action Alliance. Apparently, the councilwoman is unaware of the financial crisis devastating the state of California, its coun ties and cities. People are out of work, police officers and firefighters are being laid off and libraries are closing. To suggest the expenditure of public funds for such an obvious campaign of self-promotion and aggrandizement is the height of arrogance and impropriety.

Re: Dec. 10 letters of Bill Williams and J. Kraus. I voted for both Elois Zeanah and Jaime Zukowski. There must have been quite a few others who did the same, since both women were elected to the Thousand Oaks City Council. Zeanah and Zukowski both represent the slow- or no-growth attitude I came to love a long time ago. Most of my neighbors out here in the "sticks" feel the same. Newbury Park has been the bucolic harmless, backward "cousin" of Thousand Oaks for years. Thousand Oaks has annexed most of Newbury Park without our permission.

Why have we spent years developing a strict but fair planning policy in Thousand Oaks when, even after all these codes are followed, a small group of neighborhood aristocrats can rezone a shopping center overnight? The McDonald's fiasco is the perfect example of this whole mess ("McDonalds Denied in No Short Order," July 14). What kind of message are we sending to out-of-town companies when such absurd objections as the smell of french fries can sway city policy? Investment involves a great amount of risk for any size business.

I had planned to be at the Thousand Oaks City Council meeting Nov. 21 to speak against the need for campaign reform, but unfortunately I was ill and unable to attend. I did, however, watch the entire meeting on television, and it seemed like things are back to normal for the council. I was appalled at the bickering and fighting that occurred at this meeting. No, not appalled, sickened. Elois Zeanah was extremely upset that the campaign reform issue had to be tabled due to the length of the meeting.

For a dry, rather technical issue, it's generated quite a philosophical debate. Thousand Oaks council members tonight will consider new guidelines for handling city-owned land. But their discussion will touch on a much broader question: when does citizen input help, and when does it hinder? Councilwoman Jaime Zukowski has proposed asking residents to get involved in the arcane appraisal business, by screening the professionals who size up the value of city-owned property.

Standing between the soda and snack machines on the enclosed part of the pool deck at a Thousand Oaks motel is a cigarette machine. Anyone with $2.75 worth of quarters and standing tall enough to reach the buttons--about three feet off the ground--can purchase a pack. Such easy access to cigarettes is an open invitation to minors, Thousand Oaks Mayor Jaime Zukowski said.

City-sponsored developments slide through the permit process without adequate independent analysis, evading the lengthy reviews required for private projects, Thousand Oaks Councilwoman Jaime Zukowski charged Monday. As the most egregious example, Zukowski cited the billboard-size electronic marquee proposed for the Civic Arts Plaza.

The two warring factions on the Thousand Oaks City Council temporarily dissolved into diplomatic smiles and friendly quips Tuesday night as outgoing Mayor Jaime Zukowski turned the gavel over to Andy Fox, a colleague with whom she frequently disagrees. Fox started his one-year term as mayor with a bang, emphasizing his desire to tone down the dissension that plagues the council and streamline meetings that often last five hours and often more.
