Former Rep. Robert E. Badham (R-Newport Beach) was appointed to the state Board of Accountancy on Thursday by Gov. George Deukmejian. Badham, 60, who represented the 40th Congressional District, retired in January to open a firm that specializes in governmental lobbying. He was a member of Congress for 12 years after serving 13 years in the state Assembly. Badham was appointed to the accountancy board to replace Margarita F. Marshall-Hannen of Mill Valley, who resigned.

I would like to commend the actions taken by Rep. C. Christopher Cox (R-Newport Beach). With one sentence added to the 1990 defense spending plan he will have assured the residents surrounding the El Toro Marine Corps Air Station that this base will not become the future, much-sought International Airport for Orange County. It is to be expected that the Airport Site Coalition, a group of predominantly Newport Beach citizens, would oppose the congressman's actions. The coalition has been attempting to shove an airport into someone else's back yard to alleviate the air traffic and congestion at John Wayne.

The House Armed Services Committee is expected to approve a measure today that would prohibit commercial aviation service at El Toro Marine Corps Air Station. Rep. C. Christopher Cox (R-Newport Beach) quietly introduced the measure last week and said that its enactment would fulfill his longstanding campaign promise to keep El Toro from being used to reduce overcrowding at John Wayne Airport. "The people of the district have made it abundantly clear they do not want joint (commercial-military)

The state Senate on Monday approved a bill that would let Orange County residents vote on a proposal to raise their sales taxes to pay for new jail and courthouse facilities. By a 26-6 vote, the Senate approved the bill by Sen. Marian Bergeson (R-Newport Beach) that would allow the county, with approval from most of its voters, to impose a half-cent sales tax. The tax would be used to pay off bonds issued to build and furnish juvenile and adult detention facilities and courthouse structures.

Since late 1986, state Sen. William Campbell (R-Hacienda Heights) has missed 30% of the votes he could have cast on legislation, including more than half of those logged by committees on which he serves, a computer analysis shows. That record not only makes Campbell one of the most infrequent voters in the state Senate, where the average absentee record over the same period was 17%, but it makes him by far the member of the Orange County delegation in Sacramento with the highest percentage of missed votes, according to the analysis of legislative business conducted between December, 1986, and June 15. Collected $88 Per Diem In addition, Campbell and two other Orange County senators missed votes on days they checked in at the Capitol and collected their $88 per diem, attendance records show.

Rep. C. Christopher Cox (R-Newport Beach) was dealt a legal blow this week when Superior Court Commissioner Eleanor M. Palk ordered Cox and his attorneys to pay Werner Erhard & Associates $1,000 for failing to return videotapes of an est training session. The court also ordered Cox to return the tapes. The court's action means that the San Francisco-based firm can pursue its claim that Cox libeled est founder Erhard when he called est a "destructive cult" during his 1988 primary campaign against Erhard's brother Nathan Rosenberg.

The Assembly Transportation Committee on Monday approved legislation that would create a new Orange County Transportation Agency with the power to plan the county's roads and operate its mass transit system. The bill, by Assemblyman Gil Ferguson (R-Newport Beach), was passed on an 11-0 vote and sent to the Assembly Ways and Means Committee. Ferguson's measure is similar to a bill by Sen. Marian Bergeson (R-Newport Beach) that was approved last week by the Senate Transportation Committee.

Orange County Supervisor Gaddi H. Vasquez said Sunday that he is considering a candidacy for the Republican nomination for secretary of state. "There's been some interest, and I've received some substantial encouragement in the Republican Party," Vasquez said. He said he will weigh the "personal and public considerations" and make a decision in the next two weeks. Vasquez, 34, is viewed as an up-and-coming Republican politician who has a bright future in a party that is eager to broaden its base to include minorities.

Bus service in Orange County has never been better. Ridership is up 15% over last year and it looks as though the Orange Country Transit District will carry nearly 40 million passengers before the current fiscal year is out. So naturally there is a move afoot to make the district quit while it's ahead. The county needs to think about that one. Quitting while they're ahead would take the form of creating a super transit agency out of three existing operations. One is the district.

A measure that would give Orange County 10 new Superior Court judgeships and add three judges to the South Orange County Municipal Court cleared its first legislative hurdle Tuesday when it won the approval of the Senate Judiciary Committee. But prospects for the bill, sponsored by Sen. Marian Bergeson (R-Newport Beach), remain uncertain because the proposal is likely to become entangled in party politics and budget wrangling before the year is out. The bill would increase to 69 the number of judges in Orange County Superior Court.
