Cooley, the executive vice president of strategic initiatives at the Orange County Business Council, said he's leaving the group in part because of a disagreement over its direction.

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.

Re the commentary by Timothy J. Cooley, "It's Time to Create a Regional Government for the 21st Century" (July 2): In response to Mr. Cooley's question, I do believe the people of Orange County would allow three years for a partnership of business, government and education leaders to carve out a new regional government that would guide us through the 21st Century. In fact, that is probably the mandate the voters sent to the government on June 27. The type of activities Cooley suggests be done, such as comparing costs of similar operations, researching and implementing "best practices" in conducting operations and lining up operations with strategic goals and objectives, are concepts that I would have hoped the government was already doing.
