A feud between Ventura City Councilman Jim Monahan and the new slow-growth council majority has exploded with Mayor Richard Francis' expulsion of Monahan from the city's Water Committee. Francis on Monday cited the councilman's poor attendance record as the reason for his removal. "It's clear that he has his priorities in a different place than the rest of the council," Francis said. "Our Water Committee is a crucial one, and we have committee members who want to participate."

As former deputy mayor of Ventura, I endorse my colleague Jim Monahan for supervisor in the 1st Supervisorial District race. Monahan shares my values; my commitment to financial responsibility, my longtime ethic of community service and my interest in the arts. He will serve all the people and be an accessible supervisor. Monahan listens to every voice, of every age and every political persuasion. His interests are not special interests. Monahan has spent the most time as a leader in government and civic affairs.

The contrast between two candidates could not be more distinct than between candidates for District 1 supervisor. This difference is perfectly exemplified by the position each has taken on Measure O and the way each did it. Steve Bennett's opposition to Measure O was prompt, decisive and simply stated. Jim Monahan's response, on the other hand, was evasive, long-delayed and, to put it politely, disingenuous. He was obliged to reveal his support of Measure O by a vote of the Ventura City Council.

Re "With Labor Day Here, Politicians Go to Work," Sept. 3. In this article, Jim Monahan cavalierly dismisses Steve Bennett's qualifications for county supervisor. Bennett's degree in economics from Brown University and his service on the Ventura City Council Budget Committee do not stack up, Monahan says, to Monahan's "real practical experience" running his family's welding business or his own time as a councilman. In my 18 years as a business professional, I have more than once had people tell me I had to adjust to "real-world experience."

In my estimation, Rosa Lee Measures is the most qualified of the candidates for the 1st District supervisorial seat. I followed her actions as a Ventura City Council member and believe she has exemplified all the credentials that would serve this county well as a supervisor. I consider her the most balanced of the candidates in terms of her professional, governmental, civic and cultural experience. Her financial experience as a bank executive well qualifies her to take the necessary actions to maintain fiscal responsibility within the county, balanced by the proper level of cultural and civic support.

County supervisor candidate Jim Monahan said Tuesday that he will debate opponent Steve Bennett at a candidates forum at 10 a.m. Sunday at Temple Beth Torah in Ventura. Monahan had said Monday that he was too busy to schedule a debate with Bennett. But a day later, a spokeswoman for the candidate said he would attend Sunday's event. The two are running for the seat being vacated by retiring Supervisor Susan Lacey, whose 1st District includes Ventura and the Ojai Valley.

Former Ventura Councilwoman Rosa Lee Measures on Thursday officially endorsed Jim Monahan, her opponent in the March primary, for an open supervisorial seat in Ventura County's 1st District. Measures said Monahan, a fellow Republican, shared her values and vision for the county. She praised him for "listening to the people" and criticized his opponent, Steve Bennett, as anti-growth and beholden to special interests.

Supervisorial candidate Steve Bennett on Monday accused his opponent Jim Monahan of conducting a professional public opinion poll before taking a position on a controversial countywide initiative, a move Bennett says proves Monahan lacks the leadership skills necessary for the job. Bennett's attack centered on Monahan's decision to further study Measure O before staking out his position.

Why do people come unglued when a political candidate refuses to debate? There are some excellent reasons that candidates should avoid debates. The most compelling is death. A candidate who has died could turn off undecided voters by showing up at civic forums as a veil of ectoplasm, hammering home each of his points with a shriek and a creaking-door groan. Likewise, candidates behind bars may be forgiven for skipping debates.

Dee Boysen, Executive officer, Ventura County Building Industry Assn. I would agree it is a matter of fairness. These projects were caught in the middle. Each one of these has moved forward and has an investment trapped in the system. I don't think it will encourage more growth. The city has control over building and if they don't want it to occur, it won't. We have some concerns over how the General Plan was set. They set unrealistic limits that were already so close to the population level that they didn't allow for internal growth.
