Not a good job, Deane Dana!! Along with the name recognition that his signs bring, they must also bring the public recognition that the signs and locations seem to have been provided by the big money developers. The average person needs as much if not more representation as the moneyed interests. Now there is an alternative and I will support Gordana Swanson for county supervisor. I only hope that David can once again defeat Goliath. SYLVIA NEELY, Manhattan Beach

We read with great interest your article regarding the retirement of Supervisor Deane Dana (Nov. 15). Among the numerous accomplishments during Supervisor Dana's distinguished career were the protection and preservation of Los Angeles County's Ocean Lifeguards. Through the leadership and vision of Supervisor Dana and his chief deputy, Don Knabe, the world's premier ocean lifeguard service was merged into the Los Angeles County Fire Department. This merger came at a time when the citizens of the county were in danger of losing their lifeguards due to financial and political strains.

Gordana Swanson and Douglas Drummond see Los Angeles County government as broken and want a chance to help fix it. From their vantage point as outsiders, the nation's largest county government needs one thing more than anything else: reform. So they are waging an underfinanced, uphill fight to bring a new face to the Board of Supervisors. In candidate forums and occasional mailers to some of the voters in the sprawling 4th Supervisorial District, Swanson and Drummond have a tough task.

Supervisor Deane Dana recently spearheaded the effort to keep prices affordable for consumers at Certified Farmers Markets. This is the second time since the beginning of 1993 that Supervisor Dana has come to the aid of the farmers markets by fighting off proposed health permit fee increases. The county health permit fee program for farmers markets began in January, 1993. At that time, consumers and farmers were assured that there would be no fee increase until the program was evaluated at the end of the calendar year.

In 1980 when Deane Dana became supervisor of the Fourth District, he called a meeting of the three appointees to the Los Angeles County Commission for Women to find out what the commission was doing to address the concerns of women. At that same meeting he had invited Dr. Toni Carabillo of NOW and Joyce Morrissey from California Business and Professional Women and asked them if the Commission for Women was meeting the expectations of the "women's community." Deane Dana is the only supervisor to do this.

You failed to mention my position on Playa Vista in the Times article "Galanter Opponents See a Backlash" (Feb. 17). I believe the entire Playa Vista area should revert to wetland based on the fact that Los Angeles Harbor is required by law to replace the 2,400 acres of wetlands it destroyed. It was city tax money that paid for the harbor and their mitigating funds must remain within the city and restore the Ballona Wetlands to its original ecosystem. Furthermore, I would like to state that this campaign must be based on the issues and not dwell on the amount of money that the various candidates have raised.

County Supervisor Deane Dana apparently feels very strongly both ways: Democrats are good when they are your friends, and bad when they are friends of your opponent. And in this turbulent campaign year, Dana is spending thousands of dollars to send both messages. When Dana, a registered Republican, was endorsed by former Democratic Party Chairman Peter D. Kelly III, Dana's campaign sent out a mailer trumpeting the news to thousands of Democrats in the district.

Board of Supervisors' Chairman Deane Dana on Thursday called for the resignation of embattled county Chief Administrative Officer Richard B. Dixon--an election-year turnabout that could end the five-year reign of a man billed as one of the "most powerful public administrators in America." Dana, locked in a tough reelection bid, said it would be "in the best interests of the people of Los Angeles County" if Dixon stepped down.

Los Angeles County Supervisor Deane Dana, forced into a runoff election by the upstart campaign of Rolling Hills Mayor Gordana Swanson, has fired his longtime political adviser and brought in a new team to plot a different course for the November election. The shake-up in the campaign comes after Dana's surprising weakness in the June primary, in which he polled just 42% of the vote, far less than the 50% plus one vote need to win the election outright.
