In today's environment of dividing politicians into those who "get it" and those who don't, Supervisor (Harriett M.) Wieder, by her actions, has shown decisive leadership in addressing the No. 1 public issue in the county--jobs and the economy, contrary to what was alluded to in the article, "Group Launches Drive to Recall Wieder" (April 8). As the visionary behind Partnership 2010, the coalition of business, government and education working to develop and implement a plan for the county's economic growth, Wieder has shown a willingness to embrace new paradigms of leadership and governance, unprecedented in Orange County, which pull expertise and involvement from the private sector to address critical public policy issues.
