As my wife and I watched the news Tuesday night to hear election results, we saw the updates from Irvine regarding Measure N. I kept telling myself that the majority of Irvine voters are intelligent enough not to succumb to the lies and hatred portrayed as "family traditional values" exuding from the likes of Louis Sheldon and Scott Peotter. I also thought that most sensible people would realize that most gays and lesbians don't have 1,000 sex partners. Nor do they recruit young children or have sex in public.

Ask people to help solve Orange County's daunting traffic problems and what do you get? Sixty-eight people who are competing to fill a vacancy on the powerful Orange County Transportation Authority board. The agency oversees more than $500 million in spending on traffic improvements and sets the county's highway and transit priorities. Among the most identifiable contenders who filed by the 5 p.m. deadline on Thursday were attorney Sarah L.

Scott Peotter of the Irvine Values Coalition states, "I don't hate the homosexual, but I don't like the life style" (Sept. 6). This newly formed group is attempting to remove homosexuals from the groups protected under Irvine's newly passed human rights ordinance. Further, this coalition plans to monitor schools, businesses and government agencies in an effort to restore "traditional family values." Our nation was founded on the principle that "all men are created equal." We are all entitled to certain inalienable rights, including life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

After reading "A Matter of Values, Political Semantics" (May 4) I wonder: What other "behaviors" disturb Scott Peotter's "traditional values" system? And I have pondered what group, included in the Irvine human rights ordinance, will be the next target of his coalition on account of their "behavior." Peotter tells us that his set of values came from the "Founding Fathers"; however, he fails to realize they were a great group of activists--perhaps even radicals--who, in their own time, overthrew a government!

Re the Sept. 6 story on the Irvine coalition against homosexual rights ("Group Looks Beyond Goal of Excluding Gays From Law"): It amazes me in this day and age that Irvine resident Scott Peotter can oppose his city's ordinance protecting gay men and women from discrimination in housing, public service and employment. It amazes me still that he and his backers believe that one's sexuality is a matter of choice and that it is even remotely possible to help a homosexual "get out of the life style."

City officials voted to retain their fire safety standards for high-rise buildings, despite construction industry complaints. Scott Peotter, a spokesman for the building industry, told council members it is not economical to require special precautions such as fire control rooms, smoke control and fire alarm systems in new buildings 55 feet tall.

This letter is not intended to present any political, religious or social arguments to James Boone's letter of Aug. 28 criticizing the Irvine Values Coalition. We have all heard them. Rather, it is to voice my support of traditional family values, and my opposition to a city ordinance I feel is unnecessary and a waste of our city's funds. I question whether Scott Peotter and Eleanor Moore are as "outside the mainstream of political and religious thought" as Boone believes. While not involved with the coalition, I strongly commend their desire and appreciate their efforts to preserve traditional family values.

Irvine Councilman Dave Christensen has appointed a 14-year resident of the city as his representative on the Planning Commission. Joe Martinez, founder and CEO of Spectrum Ventures, will succeed Scott Peotter as Christensen's representative on the commission. Peotter, who recently resigned after serving eight years, said he was leaving because of increased work demands.

I have been reading the diatribe from Scott Peotter and the Irvine Values Coalition concerning the Irvine human rights ordinance for months now. I have even had the opportunity to speak with Peotter personally in a class at UCI at which he was a guest speaker. After reading the latest article to appear in The Times ("A Matter of Values, Political Semantics," Orange County Life, May 4), I felt compelled to write. He (Peotter) states: "What two people do in their bedroom is their own business.
