Your recent Newswatch item (Oct. 23) on the Orange County Transportation Authority's committee structure was inaccurate and has caused embarrassment for Supervisor Harriett Wieder, an alternate member of the authority's board of directors. Specifically, your unattributed item said Supervisor Wieder was livid because alternate members would not be allowed to participate in board committee deliberations. You reported, erroneously, that this action was pointed at her. In fact, no limits were placed on the participation of alternate members in committee discussions at all. No unfair restrictions were placed on Supervisor Wieder's right to participate in committee discussions or anyone else's right to speak.

Former Orange County Supervisor Harriett M. Wieder has been appointed to the National Advisory Environmental Health and Sciences Council, a group that advises the federal government on matters related to environmental health. "I'm delighted that we will be able to use your wisdom," Donna E. Shalala, U.S. secretary of health and human services, wrote to Wieder in a letter informing her of the appointment.

Re Supervisor Harriett M. Wieder's involvement in the Sunset Marina negotiations: For a supervisor who prides herself on having the details of just about every project in the 2nd District at her fingertips, the excuse that she wasn't aware of her son's involvement in the Sunset Aquatic Park lease negotiations is indefensible. With the controversy that has surrounded the park for the past couple of years over recreational vehicles and overnight parking and her personal involvement in that fracas, it is hard to believe she doesn't have an intimate knowledge of all the operational (and contractual)

In choosing Tom Uram as interim chief administrative officer, Orange County supervisors tapped a career civil servant with a reputation for pragmatism, candor and a dogged commitment to fiscal responsibility to lead the county through the financially shaky days ahead. "This guy will be perfect for this job," said Dr. Peter Anderson, president of the Orange County Medical Assn.

The recent slanderous remarks made about Orange County Supervisor Harriett M. Wieder, Kathryn Thompson and others who followed their conscience and constitutional right of free expression should not and cannot go unnoticed. Members of the Republican "radical religious right" seem to be threatened by those of us who are repulsed by the takeover of the Republican Party by the "radical religious right." I am a moderate Republican who will not be supporting President Bush in November because of the extremism exhibited at the Republican convention, as well as the obvious caving in to the hatemongers and the likes of the Patrick Buchanans of the world.

In today's environment of dividing politicians into those who "get it" and those who don't, Supervisor (Harriett M.) Wieder, by her actions, has shown decisive leadership in addressing the No. 1 public issue in the county--jobs and the economy, contrary to what was alluded to in the article, "Group Launches Drive to Recall Wieder" (April 8). As the visionary behind Partnership 2010, the coalition of business, government and education working to develop and implement a plan for the county's economic growth, Wieder has shown a willingness to embrace new paradigms of leadership and governance, unprecedented in Orange County, which pull expertise and involvement from the private sector to address critical public policy issues.

I am appalled to read Supervisor Harriett M. Wieder's comments in The Times ("O.C. Supervisors OK Wetlands Development," Dec. 14) in relation to her reason for voting in favor of developing the Bolsa Chica wetlands. "The county needs economic development, particularly given the events of the past two weeks. Large projects like Bolsa Chica need to be brought on line as quickly as possible," she said. Does Supervisor Wieder really see the solution to the county's financial woes as one that would cause environment disaster?

County Supervisor Harriett M. Wieder on Thursday announced her opposition to taxing Huntington Harbour residents to pay for a proposed $25-million navigable channel to connect the harbor to the Bolsa Chica wetlands. Saying she was heeding the wishes of her constituents, Wieder said she would oppose a channel between Huntington Harbour and a planned Bolsa Chica marina if no other funding can be found.

Supervisor Harriett Wieder's offer to give her $250,000 political war chest to charity (if she remains unchallenged) was praised by The Times. You say "the entire county stands to win." To make this county a winner Ms. Wieder should give back the contributions to the Irvine Co., the Mission Viejo Co. and the other land developers whose contributions weigh so heavily in the political decision-making process. The Times in a separate news story explained the reality of gridlock in the county.

I was shocked by the reported attitude of Supervisor Harriett Wieder, both in her pre-trip and post-trip behavior. Supervisor Wieder's attitude toward Americans keeping their investments in South Africa will be remembered by the 3,074 blacks in her district, should she seek reelection. While this only represents 12.1% of the district, that's 12.1% fewer votes that she will have even if she were to run for dog catcher. Add this to what I believe to be a fair number of well-meaning non-blacks in the district, and she can forget reelection.

Orange County Supervisor Harriett M. Wieder maintained an early lead over challenger Joy L. Neugebauer early today in her bid for a fourth consecutive term in office, according to partial ballot results. Wieder, who said she spent Tuesday afternoon walking along the oceanfront, enjoying the beach and "indulging" herself after voting, took the lead early in the evening Tuesday and built on it as the precincts began reporting in shortly before midnight.

County Supervisor Harriett M. Wieder and Westminster Councilwoman Joy L. Neugebauer clashed repeatedly Wednesday in the first face-to-face encounter of their campaign for Wieder's 2nd Supervisorial District seat. In the debate, taped at the studios of KOCE-TV, Neugebauer wasted no time attacking Wieder, a board member since 1978, using her introductory statement to blast the incumbent for missing 23 board meetings in the last 21 months and abstaining on 69 votes over that period.

In a written statement made public Friday, Orange County Planning Commissioner Roger D. Slates acknowledged that he attended a political dinner last month where he "did briefly express my support" for an Assembly candidate, but he sternly denied that he solicited any campaign contributions. Slates' June 5 letter, requested by Supervisor Harriett M. Wieder, stands as his first comment about the dinner, which several participants say that he and Planning Commission Chairman Stephen A.
