Distorting the truth only hurts the GOP Well, we have had Martin Truitt accuse Dave Wilcox of being a Nazi, a Libertarian, a convicted felon and now a racist. Truitt's problem is that all of these accusations are lies. It is well known that Truitt pretended to support Dave Wilcox and attended meetings to plan his campaign, but in reality was spying for Lynn Gabriel. He denies this by saying he wasn't committed [to Wilcox], but to Republicans. That is the equivalent of Bill Clinton saying it depends on what the meaning of "is is."

Ryan Carter Not only is local Republican Dave Wilcox trying to beat Assemblywoman Carol Liu (D-La Canada Flintridge) in the November election, he is facing a battle with members of his own party. Officials from the party's 44th Assembly District Central Committee are concerned that the alleged political leanings of Wilcox, the founder of the Foothill Republican Club, could hurt the party's chances of beating Liu in the fall. The district extends from La Canada Flintridge to Duarte.

Isn't it amazing that, according to a recent press release that has appeared in most of the local newspapers, Carol Liu thinks the National Guard "deserves to be rewarded and never be penalized for their sacrifices"? Yet, on April 22 of this year, it was Liu who penalized the National Guard when she voted for illegal aliens to receive tuition assistance and against National Guard members for the same benefit. When her constituents learned of what she had done and told her so with a blizzard of calls and letters, she was shamed into sponsoring a bill to provide tuition benefits for the National Guard that became law on Sept.

Council decisions head down a slippery slope I read with interest the City Council wrap-up, where it noted the council voted 5-0 in favor of beginning eminent domain procedures against a gas station after failed negotiations with the owner. The procedure will allow the city to purchase the property for a court-determined sum. I wonder if the owner was asking $5 million for his property after seeing the deal the Armenian Society of Los Angeles got. Why didn't the city accept whatever his offer was?

Horning in with some good news, for once At last! A complimentary article (Sept. 9) on city employees -- even if they are the furry, four-legged type. Hey, it's the thought that counts! RENE A. SADA Santa Clarita Liu's not voting on SB 60 not fooling this voter In a News-Press article, "Liu odd woman out on license bill" (Sept. 6), Carol Liu provides a textbook example of the slick politician. She masquerades as a moderate Democrat, but in fact supports the most extreme wing of her party, while taking steps to give herself "plausible deniability" with her constituents.

Montrose merchants making friends Thank you, News-Press, for letting us know about the kids' event in Montrose [recently]. My children are still talking about it. I have to admit that I had a pretty good time, too. How great is this to have something fun to experience right here in the north end of the city? While I'm at it, thanks to the merchants, too, for making this all available to us. I know you've made a lot of friends in the community as a result of this ongoing market.

Kindly donate paintings back to artist Thank you for publishing letters in the Community Forum concerning Mr. Zadikian's painting donation to the city with a price tag of $20K. My friends and I, although not surprised, are truly bothered by this action. Please give his works back to him. Thank you. SOSEH HAROUTYOUNYAN Glendale Stop Liu's taking and spending ways If Dave Wilcox has "never run for election," then why does Carol Liu have her "running shoes" on?

Josh Kleinbaum David Wilcox knows his odds are long. Even if he gets through the Republican primary in March, he'd still have to beat Assemblywoman Carol Liu (D-La Canada Flintridge) in an election for the 44th Assembly District seat. "She is an incumbent, and probably the wealthiest woman in the Assembly, so it is a long shot," Wilcox said Tuesday. But Wilcox is not intimidated. Wilcox, who has never run for public office, plans to run against her. "I've learned enough about the whole process, and I think I am the guy who can excite the Republican base more than anyone in the area," Wilcox said.
