A judge Monday declined to add to former City Councilwoman Valerie Stallings' punishment for taking unreported gifts from Padres owner John Moores. The judge rendered the decision after receiving pleas on Stallings' behalf from a congressman, a former state senator, a prominent scientist and two Catholic priests.

The profile on Valerie Stallings ("Stallings' Campaign Strategy Is Simple: 'Just Do It' and Win," Oct. 6) is both interesting and inconsistent. She is quoted, at one point, as saying, "That gave me a certain sense of values and integrity, a sense that you stick to your word and stand up for what you believe." It is difficult to reconcile such lofty principles with the fact that she abandoned her husband and two children in Kansas because she was "inspired" by the beauty of San Diego and the work of the Salk Institute.

I am concerned over recent articles in the press "crediting" PLAN! with the upsets in the San Diego City Council elections. I would like to set the record straight regarding PLAN!'s involvement. PLAN! has a large, politically active membership. It is quite common for PLAN members, as individuals, to be involved in campaigns and advocacy in community issues. Unfortunately, recent press accounts have taken that simple fact and spun it into something more sensational, inappropriately crediting the PLAN!

In the pluperfect world of politics, the leaders lead and the followers follow. In San Diego, we have it backward. Our leaders raise taxes, and revenue falls (that's a Laffer!), and our labor unions propose public safety ballot measures. Last year in the 6th District in San Diego, the betrayed voters elected a representative on her promise of "more police." Where was Valerie Stallings last week? Not with the three councilmen who endorsed the Police Officers Assn. initiative. She was out whining about the stadium noise.

With San Diego city officials and Padre owners unable to agree on financing, work was halted indefinitely on a new downtown ballpark for the team. Construction is 20% completed but the project has run out of money.

San Diego Councilman John Hartley is expected to announce today that he will not run for mayor next year, according to a source close to the councilman. Instead, Hartley, who has scheduled a news conference for this morning, will announce a program for addressing the needs of the city's neighborhoods, the source said. Hartley is one of four major candidates who are formally considering whether to enter the race to succeed Mayor Maureen O'Connor, who will step down from the post next year.

On June 29, the majority of the San Diego City Council arrogantly slapped the faces of the poor living in the largely minority parts of our city. It cavalierly, without regard to rampant street crime, safety, or citizens' desires, voted to ignore a reasonable request to have brighter street lighting downtown and in high-crime areas south of Interstate 8. A thorough analysis, including costs and sources of funding, was dismissed as having no merit. The "in your face" attitude was led by SDSU Professor Bob Filner and supported by Mayor Maureen O'Connor, who lives in the best part of Point Loma; Abbe Wolfsheimer of La Jolla; Judy McCarty of San Carlos and Valerie Stallings of Clairemont.
