Re "Board OKs John Wayne Flight Caps Through 2015," Feb. 27: The Board of Supervisors is to be commended for its leadership in planning responsibly for the future of John Wayne Airport. John Wayne is critical for the future of Orange County, especially for residents of the corridor cities of Santa Ana, Costa Mesa, Newport Beach, Orange, Tustin and Anaheim.

An Orange County assemblyman has joined other local politicians who have changed their minds about selling the Orange County Fairgrounds to help balance the state budget. In a letter Wednesday to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Assemblyman Jose Solorio (D-Santa Ana) said that although he had voted for the July bill that authorized the state to sell the fairgrounds, a public hearing he held last month in Costa Mesa with fellow Assemblyman Van Tran (R-Garden Grove) raised serious concerns that convinced him it should be halted.

The Golden State won't let its businesses go easily, especially not to Nevada, if one California lawmaker has his say. A week after the Nevada Development Authority ran a series of advertisements urging California companies to jump ship, Assemblyman Jose Solorio (D-Santa Ana) is retaliating. "I was pretty outraged by the nastiness of their tone," he said. "It's one thing to compare states in a factual way, but when you're doing nasty ads veiled in humor which dehumanize Californians, that's over the top."

Two Orange County assemblymen are sponsoring bills seeking to avert episodes of voter intimidation such as the one that allegedly occurred in last fall's election. Jose Solorio (D-Anaheim) is carrying legislation that would require county registrars to give candidates written copies of laws prohibiting voter intimidation at the time they take out papers to run. A bill by Van Tran (R-Garden Grove) would make voter intimidation a felony punishable by up to three years in prison.

The city clerk has asked the Orange County district attorney's office to examine possible campaign contribution violations regarding a City Council candidate. City Clerk Janice C. Guy said she sent a letter to Dist. Atty. Michael R. Capizzi Thursday regarding Jose Solorio, who unsuccessfully ran for a council seat last year. Solorio received three $1,000 donations from companies that appear to be owned by the same person, Michael F. Harrah, according to the letter.
