Former Rep. Robert E. Badham (R-Newport Beach) was appointed to the state Board of Accountancy on Thursday by Gov. George Deukmejian.

Marshall-Hannen of Mill Valley, who resigned.

Robert Edward Badham, a close friend and ally of Ronald Reagan who helped define Orange County politics during his 26 years as a Republican assemblyman and congressman from Newport Beach, died Friday after suffering a heart attack. He was 76. "He was a very fair guy who saw the good in everything," said his daughter, Phyllis Alzamora. "He really had lots of friends."

It is a rare experience to open the newspaper and find truly good news. I had such an experience when I read that Nathan Rosenberg was going to challenge Robert E. Badham in the June primary election. Badham is not only an undistinguished member of Congress but is considered an embarrassment to his district. Our 40th Congressional District needs and deserves a dynamic, potentially influential representative in Congress. Your article indicates that Rosenberg could fill that position.

Fresh from a narrow defeat in his bid for the state Senate, conservative Assemblyman Gil Ferguson has returned to his Newport Beach district only to find that he is facing a potentially tough reelection challenge from a GOP colleague. Ferguson's opponent in the June 5 primary is the daughter of former Rep. Robert E. Badham, southern Orange County's congressman for 10 years.

Now is the Golden Opportunity! Congress has finally decided to save the taxpayers some money by closing 30 to 60 military installations that are no longer necessary to national defense. Our own right honorable representative, Robert E. Badham, endorses the idea and even goes so far as to say he doesn't believe it will affect (the Marine bases at) El Toro, Tustin or Camp Pendleton but does allow that Los Alamitos may be under consideration for closing. Now, the Golden Opportunity!

Rep. Robert E. Badham (R-Newport Beach), Orange County's ranking member of Congress and a senior member of the powerful House Armed Services Committee, told supporters Sunday that he will not seek re-election to a seventh consecutive term this year. Badham, 58, said he intends to take a long vacation with his wife, Ann, and enjoy private life for the first time since he entered public life 27 years ago as a state assemblyman.

It was good to see in The Times (Feb. 23) that our two great Republican congressmen, Robert K. Dornan and Robert E. Badham, are still representing this county with such class and elan. It's too bad that Badham lost first place as "most-frequent flier" to Rep. Stephen J. Solarz of New York, a Democrat, too. But we're proud--as one of the most affluent counties in the country--to see that he's carrying the Pentagon flag at our expense to such powerful military entities as Portugal, Belgium, Denmark and Austria.

The Roll Call column that The Times regularly publishes is certainly a valuable service to the voters of Orange County. It provides a clear and concise way to see how the local congressmen voted on controversial issues. However, in a recent column, I was listed as not voting on two issues that I feel very strongly about. In fact, during the voting on these issues on April 30, I was temporarily forced to leave the House floor because of a minor medical problem. When I returned a few minutes after the vote ended, I entered the way I would have voted for the record.

While I appreciate the Los Angeles Times' concern with the House Armed Services Committee review of the procurement of the MX missile-guidance system, I must correct a rather substantial error in your July 1 story ("Some Allegations Against Northrop Called False"). I was quoted as calling Northrop's actions "dumb" during a committee hearing. In fact, I was referring to government contracting regulations when I used the word dumb. My exact words were: "We have a series of procedures that requires that the United States of America do business practice in a way that is so dumb nobody else would do it that way."

By now, your paper's erratic editorial policies should generate no real surprise among readers, particularly since The Times remains so out of step with the political mainstream of Orange County. Among the Republican majority here, and a sizable number of Democrats as well, you have become an editorial anachronism. In your Nov. 4 edition, you carried your preferred slate of candidates (practically all Democrats, of course) under a special disclaimer denoting your editorial policy on endorsements.

A Newport Beach congressman was among a group of six lawmakers who accepted $2,000 honorariums from a Wisconsin trucking company hours before voting on a measure that forced the U.S. Army to buy 500 more trucks from the firm than it wanted. Although Rep. Robert E. Badham and aides for some of the other congressmen who attended the April breakfast said Friday that the timing of the payments was merely "coincidental" with their vote last year, some critics called it a blatant conflict of interest.

The latest trend in Orange County politics has become clear: Attack the dreaded "GOP power brokers." If you believe a collection of recent letters to the editor and comments in news stories, these evil Republican monsters have taken over our government and are plotting to exploit the masses of Orange County residents for their own personal gain. Fred Forster, in a (March 20) letter to The Times implies that I am one of these "power brokers." Yes, once again, sideline complainers are stooping to new lows to avoid the issues.

State Sen. Marian Bergeson (R-Newport Beach) on Monday opted out of the 40th Congressional District race, opening the way for a tough Republican battle to succeed Rep. Robert E. Badham. In announcing her decision, Bergeson said, "The advantages in Congress really were not that compelling in comparison to what I could do in the state Legislature." She said she was gratified by the "outpouring of support" that came her way after Badham, also a Newport Beach Republican, announced on Jan.

The scramble to succeed retiring Rep. Robert E. Badham (R-Newport Beach) began in earnest Monday as two Republicans announced that they will seek the nomination in the heavily GOP 40th District and four officeholders, also Republicans, studied their prospects. Badham, 58, who told supporters at a holiday party at his home Sunday that he would not seek reelection to a seventh term, made his decision official Monday morning at a press conference in his district office.
