Supervisor Frank Schillo says in his recent letter, "Let's have some positive involvement by citizens in government and some helpful discourse about county issues, not personal attacks." I am offering helpful discourse. Please justify Schillo's spending an exorbitant amount of taxpayers' money for a Thousand Oaks office, since he has been so adamant about cutting costs as a new supervisor. I hope 1,000 people meet him "out front" when he answers this question. MARIE M. REIDY Thousand Oaks

Hoping to take advantage of a rift between Supervisor Judy Mikels and the union representing Ventura County sheriff's deputies, a former LAPD officer said Monday he plans to challenge Mikels in next year's election.

Re "Supervisors Back Ban on Spray Paint Cans," April 12. The proposal by Supervisor Frank Schillo and Dist. Atty. Michael D. Bradbury to ban standard spray paint cans is totally ridiculous. It is a waste of time and money. The people who are responsible for graffiti believe they are marking their territory. It is very important to them. In some cases, tagging could even be considered a matter of pride. Do you think not having spray paint would actually stop them? I wouldn't be surprised if they were out there with a can of paint and a paintbrush to get the job done.

Thousand Oaks Councilman Dennis Gillette will not run for next year's open seat on the Ventura County Board of Supervisors, but will seek a second term on the City Council, he said Monday. Gillette's withdrawal leaves conservatives in search of a candidate to fill the shoes of retiring Supervisor Frank Schillo.

Why is Many Mansions building the so-called Community House when the Shadow Hills apartments are in the red $4.5 million? Will they be asking the city of Thousand Oaks to bail them out? The city already gave Many Mansions an $8-million bond to purchase Shadow Hills, a low-income apartment complex on Wilbur Road. Will Community House be another financial burden to the city of Thousand Oaks? Why is our tax money going to the funding of these sour deals? Why did taxpayers have to foot the bill when the Police Mobile Resource [Center]

I have always believed that you should look at what a person does rather than what they say. On Jan. 4, The Times reported newly elected Supervisor Frank Schillo said: "We must take a hard, cold look at the county budget. If we all agree that no new taxes are the order of the day, then we cannot continue spending as we have before." Then, not four days later, The Times reported that Supervisor Schillo announced he is close to leasing an office that will cost $1,000 more a month than that of his predecessor.

Re "Schillo Takes Role as Chief Inquisitor," Jan. 23. This puff piece about Supervisor Frank Schillo and his attempts to solve some of Ventura County's budget problems ruined my breakfast. The writer was just a little short of nominating Schillo for sainthood when in fact Schillo seems to be the most hypocritical person ever to be a county official. The truest statement in the article came from [county employees union leader] Barry Hammitt, who said, "Some of us wonder whether his fiscal conservatism and concern for taxpayer dollars begins and ends at the tip of his nose."

Re "Agriculture Chief Faces New Round of Criticism," March 11. Well, here we go again, another of our weekly attacks on Ventura County Agricultural Commissioner Earl McPhail. Acting Assistant Enforcement Dictator Douglas Y. Okumura seems to be teaming up with newly elected Supervisor Frank Schillo and assorted other environmental activists to pummel McPhail, who has been put on a six-month probation. I cannot speak to all of the points cited in this week's episode, but at least one is phony.

Most of the staff of the Ventura County Library Services Agency have been listening quietly while some community members and elected officials cast animadversions on our ability to successfully and cost-effectively operate this library system. There is too much "fat," we hear. Other agencies, i.e. Thousand Oaks and Oxnard, can process and buy books better and cheaper than we can. I'm sorry, but that's not the reality. We in the Central Services Division would like to inform the public of a few facts.

The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library is negotiating to bring a jet and limousine once used by the former commander-in-chief to the hilltop museum. Ventura County Supervisor Frank Schillo said he was told last week that the library will acquire a plane that served as Air Force One during Reagan's two terms. Library officials refused to comment Monday. Schillo said library foundation director Mark Burson told him the library is getting one of the 40th president's bulletproof limousines.

Despite growing opposition to the county government's four-day workweek, officials say it may be the only way to meet federal air-quality requirements. While three county supervisors say they want to return to a regular workweek this fall, they add that they are bound by regulations that call for reducing the number of cars on the road. As a result, Supervisors John Flynn, Judy Mikels and Frank Schillo will most likely push for staggered workweeks, giving employees a Friday off every two weeks.
