Irresponsible actions have ruined our state I wish to thank Dean Hartwell, vice president of the Glendale Democratic Club, for his letter to the News-Press delineating what he feels are 20 "accomplishments" by Gov. Gray Davis that should prompt us to vote "no" in the Oct. 11 recall election. He has done a fantastic job in his list by highlighting many of the actions taken by Gov. Davis and the Democratic Legislature that have helped to result in companies leaving the state, increases in unemployment, the creation of a huge deficit, the highest fuel costs in the country, increased electrical power costs, the lowering of the state's bond rating resulting in higher interest rates for bonds, etc. What the heck, $10 million here, $10 million there, who cares whether or not we have the money?

Josh Kleinbaum Five months ago, when California's electorate ousted Gray Davis from the governor's seat in favor of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Democrats hoping to win governmental appointments had to rethink their political paths. As a result, City Councilman Gus Gomez, who had applied for a judicial appointment, is running for Superior Court judge in two weeks. If he wins, he must forfeit his seat on the council. One of Schwarzenegger's first acts as governor was to remove many of Davis' appointees, installing his own regime in Sacramento.

Campaign finance should be recalled, not the governor It seems there are really two questions facing Californians as they head to the polls today. Should we have a recall, and should Gov. Gray Davis be recalled? The answers lie in our understanding of economics and government As any teacher of the subject will tell you, economics is about making choices. A few of the choices Gov. Davis has made have been labeled bad ones. The governor should have foreseen many of the financial problems facing the state that left us with a $38-billion deficit.

Josh Kleinbaum The United States Court of Appeals voted Monday to postpone the Oct. 7 special election to recall Gov. Gray Davis, based on voting concerns. At the center of the controversy are the infamous hanging chads, which were on the Florida ballots that put the 2000 presidential election in question. Six counties in California, including Los Angeles, still use chad-style punch-out ballots, which the court said are more error-prone than other methods.

I would like to comment on Dean Hartwell's Community Commentary praising Gov. Gray Davis (Weekend, Aug. 23-24). Mr. Hartwell, with all due respect, I do not believe that overspending into the billions, and the backlash from it that is now flowing down into the pockets of every Californian, deserves any merit at all. The only remaining item left that does not have a tax is the unhealthy air that we breathe each and every...

election Here are some facts Californians ought to know before they go to the voting booth Oct. 7. This recall election should be about recalling what Gov. Gray Davis has done for us: 1. Gov. Davis signed legislation that will keep abortion legal in California even if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade. 2. Gov. Davis signed a trade agreement with Armenia. This agreement has resulted in a tripling of exports to that nation. 3. Gov. Davis has appointed a record number of gays and lesbians to senior positions in government.

They're going to mess with the flag code again? I read with horror the recent article about our City Council's attempt to change the U.S. Flag Code to honor the death of cops. While I sympathize with the cause of honoring a fallen officer, I absolutely reject any attempts to tinker with the flag code. Unlike what some councilmen believe, the code leaves no discretion as to when the U.S. flag is to be lowered. A few years ago, when our City Council capitulated to our "super patriots'" demands to strictly enforce the flag code, it effectively disallowed the lowering of the U.S. flag for fallen officers.
