Faced with an $800-million price tag for traffic improvements and other public works for Disney's new resort, Anaheim and Disney turned in part to Stan Oftelie, executive director of the Orange County Transportation Authority. OCTA's Board of Directors told Oftelie to find a way to give a boost to the Disneyland Resort, but it was Oftelie who came up with the plan that could win federal funding for one of Disney's parking structures.

Re "'Untouchables' Go by Board," March 7: Stan Oftelie says that because of redistricting, Supervisor Cynthia P. Coad was running as an unknown in many areas. All one has to do is pick up a newspaper or turn on a television on any given day to delve into the many fiascos of the Orange County Board of Supervisors, with a liberal discussion of the tunnel-visioned Coad. If this is a precursor to the future, maybe Oftelie should start honing the rationalization of Supervisor Chuck Smith.

Re Linda Morrison's letter of May 5: How dare Morrison accuse Orange County Transportation Authority drivers of lacking "team spirit" and being "prima donnas"! The situation she discusses is caused by mismanagement. Terry Crane's May 5 letter correctly pointed out what is really happening here: a chief executive officer trying to improve his status at the expense of the little people (those very same drivers and the public as well). Stan Oftelie, OCTA CEO, has shown his disdain for the very people he was allegedly hired to serve.

Re "Runway or Walkway? Measure W to Decide," Commentary, Feb. 3: In their continued misguided effort to promote an unneeded, unwanted and unsafe airport at El Toro, Stan Oftelie of the Orange County Business Council and Reed Royalty of the Orange County Taxpayers Assn. offer one more example of the "sky is falling" alarmist mentality of the pro-airport faction. Their article contends that Orange County's "explosive growth" over the last 20 years demands an airport at El Toro. They neglect to point out that even with that growth, John Wayne Airport, in its restricted capacity, has more than adequately handled the county's demand for passenger service.

I have just read the Commentary piece on Measure M by Stan Oftelie, executive director of the Orange County Transportation Commission (Nov. 12). I agree with almost everything Oftelie says, as probably everyone else does. However, he tacitly lays the blame for the failure of Measure M on several causes that are indeed valid, but he neglects the one outstanding cause: the county itself. It is patently impossible to do anything constructive in easing traffic until and unless the county ceases to authorize more and more construction, whether it be hotels, condo, resorts, office buildings.

The Orange County Business Council believes that the decision to explore the possibility of an interim cargo use at El Toro Marine Corps Air Station is sound. Orange County's businesses depend upon a comprehensive air and land transportation system to move goods and services. Twelve percent of Orange County's "domestic" product is exported. Orange County is the 13th-largest exporter of 253 metropolitan areas in the nation, and by 2001, 55% of Orange County's businesses will compete in the global marketplace.

A veteran Caltrans engineer--who rose through the ranks after designing the controversial, never-to-be-built Pacific Coast Freeway through Orange County--was named Tuesday to direct the county's new Caltrans district office. Leo J. Trombatore, director of the state Department of Transportation, introduced Keith McKean, 63, during a press conference at Caltrans' temporary offices on 17th Street in Santa Ana.

The job requires a tough, capable administrator willing to work under extreme stress. Hours: Long. The financial situation: Critical. Must lay off people, lots of them, and downsize operations dramatically. Survival skills are required to deal with politicians whose careers are in jeopardy. With the demotion of County Administrative Officer Ernie Schneider, the Board of Supervisors is looking for a temporary crisis manager to steer Orange County out of the worst municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history.
