In a victory for businesses that are angry over strict smog rules, Gov. Pete Wilson signed a bill Tuesday that could lead to the ouster of Orange County's influential representative on the Southern California air quality management board. Wilson's approval of the measure ensures that Yorba Linda Councilman Henry Wedaa, a political moderate, will face a tough fight against conservatives in Orange County to retain his post on the South Coast Air Quality Management District board.

The mayors of Orange County's two largest cities have fashioned a pragmatic compromise that will keep a county representative on the board of the powerful South Coast Air Quality Management District. That's helpful to Orange County, and to the whole region. Anaheim Mayor Tom Daly and Santa Ana Mayor Daniel H. Young say that they have been consistent critics of Henry W. Wedaa because in their view he has been anti-business in his seven years at the AQMD, the last two as chairman.

It was a slow night during Mayor Fred Hunter's debut as a radio talk show host. Hunter and his guest, City Manager Robert Simpson, spent an hour extolling the virtues of Anaheim but only netted one caller: the head of a local realty board who praised the "progressive things" the city is doing. Still, the show pleased Hunter. With the launching of "An Evening With the Mayor Starring Mayor Fred Hunter," he becomes the only Orange County official to host both weekly television and radio programs.

Hoping to avoid a north-south political battle over El Toro Marine Corps Air Station's future, a group of northern cities on Saturday invited all Orange County cities to join a regional airport authority. Garden Grove City Councilman Mark Leyes proposed the idea to break a "political logjam" he said jeopardizes planning the future of the 4,700-acre air base that's scheduled for closure under federal cutbacks.

With an assist from the state Legislature, Costa Mesa Councilman Peter F. Buffa declared Tuesday that he will once again try to dethrone Orange County's embattled representative on the South Coast Air Quality Management District board. The conservative Buffa failed to dislodge Yorba Linda Councilman Henry W. Wedaa from his air board seat in January, 1992, but now feels he can prevail because of recent action in Sacramento to diminish the moderate incumbent's chances of remaining in power.

Split between a moderate incumbent and a conservative challenger, the county's mayors on Friday failed to elect a representative to the South Coast Air Quality Management District board. The campaign for the seat representing Orange County's cities on the AQMD board has been unusually intense, with some elected officials seeking to unseat incumbent Henry W. Wedaa because they strongly dislike the AQMD's policies and rules.
