A controversy over road-building plans in Santa Clarita has generated an angry exchange of correspondence between U.S. Rep. Howard P. "Buck" McKeon (R-Santa Clarita) and Santa Clarita City Councilwoman Jill Klajic. First, the councilwoman wrote to the chairman of the House Committee on Transportation, complaining about a request by the city and McKeon for federal funds to build new roads in the western part of the city.

Clyde Smyth has won a seat on the City Council for the third time in two weeks, edging out Jill Klajic by 15 votes in a recount Tuesday. * Klajic's campaign manager, Skip Newhall, requested another electronic tally of the ballot last week when the more than 10,400 ballots turned in to Santa Clarita precincts April 12 showed Smyth edging the incumbent for the third seat by 16 votes.

We must turn the present budget crisis into an opportunity for reform of county government. We can restore the traditional role of county government as a human services provider and return the responsibility of public works improvements to the cities. This approach is termed "downsizing" county government. I recommend that we not give counties additional powers or means of taxation. In the case of Los Angeles County, we have found a gross misuse of public funds, including unnecessary office remodeling and extravagant use of limousines.

I am appalled at the decision by the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy to rename Towsley Canyon Park the Sen. Ed Davis Park. If Sen. Davis contributed to saving this canyon from being turned into a garbage dump, he did so as one of the many hard-working volunteers who collected signatures, donated money, and spent long hours lobbying legislators throughout California. Why should we honor this man, who has been paid well all these years he served in the state Senate? This only perpetuates the unfair practice of honoring undeserving politicians, paid servants of the people.

Police are investigating a recent break-in, theft and vandalism of Councilwoman Jill Klajic's Placerita Canyon home. The councilwoman told police that the crimes, committed during the past three weeks, are politically motivated and intended to discourage her from seeking reelection in 1994.

Santa Clarita Mayor Jill Klajic and other foes of a proposed garbage dump in Elsmere Canyon have no qualms about trespassing over private lands to reach the portion of the rugged gorge that lies in the Angeles National Forest. They have even managed to get a key from a sympathizer to unlock metal gates blocking a private road leading to the canyon, which lies east of Santa Clarita off the Antelope Valley Freeway.

Santa Clarita Mayor Jill Klajic has proposed an ordinance that would require developers to hire local construction workers when building projects in the city. Klajic asked the city attorney to study her proposal during the City Council meeting late Tuesday, the same day that 250 members of a construction union complained that the city's largest developer is not hiring enough local union workers to build the area's first regional mall.

Controversy continued Monday over what City Council candidates must, may or--in the most recent scuffle--may not print on their campaign signs and literature.

There is a strict dress code for Santa Clarita Mayor Jill Klajic's party tonight: No suits or ties, no dresses or high-heeled shoes. Just pajamas. Yes, a grown-up pajama party. No, men are not invited. This will be the mayor's fifth women-only pajama party in the past two years--a tradition that has generated both humor and controversy at City Hall in Santa Clarita, the new little city that is rapidly establishing a reputation as the capital of offbeat municipal government.
