City Councilwoman Rhonda J. McCune has announced that she will put her belief in term limits into practice and not run for reelection in November. "I do believe in term limits," the two-term councilwoman said at Tuesday night's council meeting. "I think the reason the country's in the terrible shape it's in is because we have congressmen who have been in office for 30 years." McCune, 48, said she has thought about the decision for several months.

There's nothing at all "perplexing" about Garden Grove's decision to withdraw from the League of California Cities, notwithstanding the lamentations of Buena Park Council Member Rhonda J. McCune ("Gaining Political Clout in Numbers," March 18). Frankly, what's "perplexing" is that so many of California's 469 cities continue to be members of the league. Since the League provides benefits to all California cities on a non-exclusive and non-divisible basis it makes little sense for any individual city to actually join the league.

Following two private plane crashes in her city in eight days, Buena Park's mayor said Monday she would like to see Fullerton Airport closed. Mayor Rhonda J. McCune said that if that cannot be done, she would at least like to see takeoffs and landings over her city banned at the 65-year-old general aviation airport, which handles propeller-driven private planes and is owned by the city of Fullerton. It is a plea, McCune said, that has been made repeatedly to no avail after previous crashes.

The county Republican Party executive board voted Wednesday to reprimand state Assembly candidate Rhonda J. McCune, saying that she misrepresented the facts in a campaign letter attacking her GOP primary opponent, Curt Pringle. The board stopped short of the more severe step of censuring McCune. And it refrained from saying that the campaign letter was false. Instead, the board decided that "information in the mailer, taken as a whole, was distorted, misrepresented and offered out of context."

When reapportionment touched off a scramble among Orange County's state Assembly members early this year, incumbent Doris Allen (R-Cypress) was expected to run for the newly drawn 68th district since it contained many of her current constituents. But at the last minute, Allen surprised her party leaders and chose, instead, to compete against two of her Assembly colleagues for a new seat on the coast.

Buena Park mayor and state Assembly candidate Rhonda J. McCune has raised more than $17,000 in contributions from the owners of her hometown's biggest employer--Knott's Berry Farm--making her campaign coffers richer than those of her rivals. Besides the donations from Russell and Stephen Knott--both general partners in their family's amusement park--McCune has received just $350 from other contributors, according to financial disclosure statements filed last week.

Republican Assembly candidate Curt Pringle complained to the county GOP's ethics committee Tuesday about a campaign letter from his opponent Rhonda McCune that attacks him for being "just another dishonest politician." McCune's letter highlights six accusations against Pringle stemming from the one term he served in the Assembly, as well as the controversy surrounding his 1988 campaign and its role in placing uniformed guards at polling places in Latino neighborhoods on Election Day.
