Mayor Joe Erickson this week declared his candidacy for a second term on the City Council. Erickson, elected in 1992, pointed out some of the council's achievements in the past four years: opening a new senior citizens center, expanding the Police Department's gang detail and closing several motels that had housed prostitution rings. Several companies moved major operations to town during that time, too, including Unocal Corp. and Automobile Club of Southern California.

The city will take applications for a Planning Commission seat left vacant by the appointment of Joe Erickson to the City Council last month. The council voted 4 to 0 to seek applications instead of appointing a member right away. Councilwoman Sandra L. Genis abstained. Erickson asked that the council also review candidates interviewed when John Palme was named to the Planning Commission earlier this year.

The city's next mayor will serve only a one-year term, the council decided Monday. Councilwoman Libby Cowan proposed shortening the two-year term after seeing how much time previous Mayor Joe Erickson and Mayor Gary Monahan spent at City Hall. She also said shortening the term would allow more council members the opportunity to serve as mayor, which is largely a ceremonial position. Monahan, who cast the only dissenting vote, said a mayor should be prepared to work hard.

A review of Orange County's bankruptcy recovery and a discussion of the direction the county government should take are on the agenda for Monday's City Council meeting. Mayor Joe Erickson said the city is trying to take a leadership role and send a message to the county. The City Council, he said, feels that it should make a public pronouncement about its views and hopes that other cities will follow suit. "We just felt it was time for a city to take a formal vote," Erickson said.

Mayor Joe Erickson and the residents of Costa Mesa should hang their heads in shame for their punishment of hungry people with the 90-day moratorium on Share Our Selves ("Free Lunch Halted for Homeless," April 15). How ironic that it came at the Easter season when the Christian world celebrates the life of one who said we would find him in the hungry, the homeless, the imprisoned and the sick. "When you care for the least of my brothers, you do it for me." EILEEN McMARGH Dana Point
