It is unbelievable that LACTC Chairman Pete Schabarum is seeking to be secretary of transportation in the Bush Administration. He shows absolute incompetence in dealing with issues concerning the RTD, and by trying to blackmail them into following his plan, demonstrates considerable ignorance in dealing with these transportation problems. How can Schabarum expect to be selected to head our nation's Transportation Department when he can't even handle the one in Los Angeles County correctly?

Former Los Angeles County Supervisor Pete Schabarum has been indicted by the county grand jury for allegedly embezzling $50,000 from a charitable group he heads and using the money for personal travel around the world, according to the indictment and a source close to the investigation. Schabarum, a conservative known for his often outspoken and belligerent ways, was indicted Feb. 5 after three days of secret hearings before the grand jury.

I'm keeping Supervisor Schabarum's preposterous letter on AIDS in my 1986-87 file. When Los Angeles' costs are then about $20 to $60 million to cope with this epidemic, I shall remind the good citizens of Los Angeles that as long ago as September, 1985, Schabarum considered "Mother's Handy Sex Guide" to be nothing but "hard-core pornographic trash."

Your article ignored most of the new and expanded services Schabarum brought to the residents of Los Angeles County. In particular, because of his leadership, the only new county libraries built in the 1980s were in the First District. He provided the financial acumen and vision to build a new headquarters for the County Library at Rancho Los Amigos in Downey. New programs such as literacy centers, technology and video services pioneered in his district because of his encouragement.

Supervisor Schabarum continues to advocate the privatization of bus service as a realistic, cost-effective alternative to the RTD. If his theory is correct I wonder how he would explain the loss of the privately owned Pacific Electric system. Schabarum should review recent history. He would find that nearly all public transit systems became public when their private operators could no longer make a profit. EDWIN CANE San Gabriel

The county counsel's instruction to his deputies to disqualify Judge Jack Newman in a bathhouse case (and, apparently in other Los Angeles County cases) is an outrage. The county counsel has apparently succumbed to pressure from Supervisor Pete Schabarum who has said publicly that Judge Newman's past ties to the Democratic Party makes him suspect. Democratic, or for that matter Republican, affiliation certainly has no relevance to a bathhouse case unless one contends that civil rights or civil liberty questions are better handled by members of one party rather than the other.

As a former resident of Los Angeles County who now pays his citizen's dues to San Diego County, I take issue with Schabarum's conclusion that it is "morally and financially unacceptable" for county residents to be responsible for immigrants and refugees in our midst. All of the supervisor's "eye-opening statistics" provide irrefutable arguments that lead to the very opposite conclusion. America is enriched by a continuing infusion of newcomers. To the extent that we elevate their quality of life, we elevate our own. That is our reality.

A coalition of Latino politicians and community leaders confronted the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday with a packed hall of vocal supporters and a bitter demand that the board settle the festering voting rights lawsuit. The group accused the board of diluting Latino voting strength through the drawing of district lines and singled out Supervisor Pete Schabarum for what they said was a "cynical" and "malicious" maneuver to keep Latino politicians from running for his seat.

Los Angeles County Supervisor Deane Dana has emerged as the power behind the scenes in the redistricting plan submitted to a federal court Wednesday as a possible settlement of a lawsuit seeking to increase Latino political clout. Dana, sometimes working alone and sometimes with the county's political consultant, drafted the plan that provides political security for himself and three colleagues at the expense of his one-time mentor, Supervisor Pete Schabarum.
