Supervisor William G. Steiner will be presenting "the Roosters" with a special resolution for 21 years of community service. The Roosters, a group of businessmen who meet monthly, raise money for charity organizations that help disadvantaged children. In 1997, the Roosters donated $90,000 for children in need and served Christmas dinner to 150 families around Orange County. The award ceremony will take place at noon March 12 at the Chanteclair restaurant.

I cannot understand why Jerry Hicks said it would be a sad day if Jan Mittermeier is forced to resign as county chief executive officer (Sept. 19). No one is asking her to resign. Under consideration is some reduction of the CEO's authority. The "force" comes from Supervisor William G. Steiner's statement that "she might step down rather than give up some of her power." Even though Steiner says "there is a lot of interest in [Mittermeier] in the private sector," she collects a $160,024 annual salary after a recent 14% pay raise and might be hard-pressed to equal that figure elsewhere.

Reading the newspapers last Thursday morning ("Silva Picks Up Tillotson's Endorsement," June 9) should make Democrats supporting Linda Moulton Patterson in her "nonpartisan" race for (Orange County) supervisor face reality. Get mad and get even! "There is no such thing as a nonpartisan race in Orange County," said Supervisor William G. Steiner. County Supervisor Roger Stanton warned local business people that Moulton Patterson, by virtue of her Democratic Party affiliation, represented a serious threat to the board's conservative style of governing.

What greater statement can there be of the condition of our society than the sentence of one year in County Jail and a $100,000 fine of former Treasurer-Tax Collector Robert L. Citron for the crime of gambling away $1.64 billion of taxpayer funds? At the same time he draws an $86,000 retirement from the county. Meanwhile, from a Times editorial to Supervisor William G. Steiner there are statements about how poor old Bob Citron has paid a heavy price for his indiscretions with taxpayer funds.

I am outraged at the criminal indictment of former Orange County Budget Director Ron Rubino by the Orange County Grand Jury. Ron Rubino's only agenda was to serve the people of Orange County in the very best way possible. In the many years I worked with him, his defining characteristics were his integrity and honesty. He never had hidden agendas. He could be trusted to tell the truth. He brought intelligence, energy and principled leadership to every role in which he served. He would never knowingly do anything to harm the people of Orange County.

It's not often I agree with Lincoln Club member Buck Johns but last week I think he hit the nail on the head when asked by the (television) interviewer "Why do we need a county government?" Johns wasn't sure that we do. I agree. As a "charter" county we could privatize work more easily. Many of the 18,000 county jobs would be eliminated. For openers, we could get rid of five supervisors and the $5 million their offices cost. Another plus would be that employee quality and output would be more closely scrutinized for efficiency.
