This was not your run-of-the-mill birthday party. When Sally J. Alexander's friends crowded around a backyard swimming pool Sunday afternoon, they were feting not her 82nd birthday, but the kickoff of her campaign as Democratic nominee for Congress. And, true to form, the red-haired activist and retired public relations specialist brought along a Boogie board, the icon of her challenge to surfing politician and GOP incumbent Dana Rohrabacher.

Reading the newspapers last Thursday morning ("Silva Picks Up Tillotson's Endorsement," June 9) should make Democrats supporting Linda Moulton Patterson in her "nonpartisan" race for (Orange County) supervisor face reality. Get mad and get even! "There is no such thing as a nonpartisan race in Orange County," said Supervisor William G. Steiner. County Supervisor Roger Stanton warned local business people that Moulton Patterson, by virtue of her Democratic Party affiliation, represented a serious threat to the board's conservative style of governing.

Sally J. Alexander, 78, has spent nearly 60 years toiling in the political arena for the Democrats. And though successes have been few and far between, her hopes are high that the drought will end in November. A founding member and three-time president of the Democratic Club of west Orange County, she was a Clinton delegate to the Democratic National Convention in New York City. Alexander has persevered in this Republican stronghold. It has not always been easy.

Whew! When I saw Howard Adler's Op-Ed piece ("It's Time to Address the Issues That Voters Really Care About," Sept. 29), I was very concerned that the Democratic Party would immediately spot the wisdom of Chairman Adler's views and thereby gain a marked advantage over the Republican Party by way of a platform that would truly appeal to California citizenry. But I will rest easier after seeing Sally J. Alexander's letter ("Democratic Party Platform Aims at Issues, Not Polls," Oct. 13)

The headline "Orange County Democrats Find No Life in the Party" (Nov. 26) is shocking to me because my club, the Democratic Club of West Orange County, has a growing membership of 200. There are several active grass-roots Democratic clubs and Assembly district committees that meet regularly, study issues, register voters, walk precincts for candidates and help Democratic candidates keep the Democratic Party alive--not rich, but alive and responsive in...

As president of the Democratic Club of West Orange County I thank you for printing (May 11) the former Democrats' photos in a "lineup" so we can readily identify those whose priorities do not match the 364,813 Democrats in Orange County. We would rather they be "comfortable" in the Republican milieu than acting as "boll weevils" as we work to overcome the social problems which have increased during the Republican Administration in Orange County. So, how do we react to the oppressive Republican dominance in our political, business and social life so accurately described in Claudia Luther's article?

In response to Hugh Hewitt's Aug. 30 article: Eight reasons why Orange County voters will help Clinton win the presidency: 1. The 83,900 unemployed in Orange County know they need a change in government. Clinton's economic program will match Germany's and Japan's successful combination of private industry, labor and governmental cooperation and will stimulate economic growth through tax incentives, job training, repairing and rebuilding roads and bridges, which will provide jobs, jobs, jobs.

U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif) on Tuesday addressed Medicare spending and other issues important to older Americans before a receptive audience at Leisure World, but as a recent grandmother she also championed the causes of the young. Boxer, 55, told the Leisure World residents that she could relate to them in a new way: as a grandmother. Her daughter, Nicole Rodham, and son-in-law Tony Rodham have a year-old son, Zachary.
