Letters to the Community Forum that I have observed over the years have run the gamut from eloquently coherent to irrational nonsense, but Jason Roe's letter ("Will Rogers simply jealous of Rogan," June 15), wins the grand prize for being the most absurdly imbecilic letter (hit piece) I have yet to read. In it, he claims that poor Will has been so down on Rogan because Will is simply green with envy over Rogan's enormous accomplishments. I obviously can't speak for Will, but I'm personally darned glad I'm not James Rogan, much less being envious of him. And I'd bet the farm that that's how Will feels.

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- The showdown has been canceled. The News-Press canceled a debate that was to be held Thursday between the 27th Congressional District front-runners, Rep. James Rogan (R-Glendale) and state Sen. Adam Schiff (D-Glendale). Rogan will probably remain in Washington, D.C. this week because Congress has passed only four of 13 appropriations bills for this year's budget, Jason Roe, campaign manager for the incumbent congressman, said Tuesday.

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- The man behind the reelection campaign of Rep. James Rogan (R-Glendale) will today step into the spotlight. Jason Roe, manager of the Rogan campaign, will be the guest on "Larry Zarian Forum," which will be broadcast from 7 to 8 p.m. on Charter Cable Channel 26. Talk show host Larry Zarian said he did not invite Ted Osthelder, manager of the campaign of state Sen. Adam Schiff (D-Glendale), Rogan's opponent in the 27th Congressional District.

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- The Glendale Homeowners Coordinating Council can take the "s" off of "candidates" in their "Congressional Candidates' Forum." The campaign for Rep. James Rogan (R-Glendale) said Thursday the incumbent congressman would not appear with state Sen. Adam Schiff (D-Glendale) at the event on Monday. Due to his legislative duties, the congressman has limited time for forums and debates and wants to focus on those that will be nonpartisan, said Jason Roe, manager of the Rogan campaign.

As an Arab-American I am outraged at the comments made by Republican James Rogan and his spokesman Jason Roe regarding a local Muslim leader. Will Congressman Jim Rogan stop at nothing to get reelected? Not content enough to broadcast a series of misleading television ads that grossly distort his opponent's record, Rogan's campaign has now resorted to smearing the reputation of respected community leaders and playing on ethnic stereotypes of Muslims as terrorists.

Tim Willert GLENDALE -- Former Glendale Rep. James Rogan on Thursday accepted a top Commerce Department appointment by President George W. Bush. Rogan, a Republican who lost an expensive reelection campaign to Democrat Adam Schiff in November, was tapped by Bush to be undersecretary of Commerce for intellectual property and director of the Patent and Trademark Office. "He had indicated he would be willing to serve," Jason Roe, Rogan's political director, said Thursday.

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- Rep. James Rogan (R-Glendale) helped raise enthusiasm among delegates at the 2000 Republican National Convention in Philadelphia on Monday by praising his mom and promising a Republican president and Congress for her grandchildren. "I came here to talk about a hero, a young woman who raised four children on welfare and food stamps," Rogan said. "My hero is my mother, Alice, and because my mom wants poor mothers to see their children succeed, my mother is a Republican who wants George W. Bush to lead America into the 21st century."

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- A small group gathered in front of the campaign office for U.S. Rep. James Rogan (R-Glendale) to challenge the congressman's record on HMO reform. Vaughn Thompson of the Pasadena-based Accountability Project said the conference on Wednesday was organized to refute claims made in a cable television advertisement being run by the Rogan campaign. The ad attacks Rogan's opponent, state Sen. Adam Schiff (D-Glendale), on HMO reform.

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- News that a California Republican may give up his House seat for a federal judgeship had GOP supporters and political consultants calling former Glendale Congressman James Rogan on Thursday. "This was complete news to us," said Jason Roe, who served as Rogan's campaign manager in the 2000 election. A story published in the Los Angeles Times on Thursday said Rep. Christopher Cox (R-Newport Beach) is being considered by the Bush Administration for a seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.

I want to add to the responses to Jason Roe's letter given by Robert Morrison, Judy Cabrera and Richard Lippman. Like Judy, I have been a Republican for many years. I first voted against FDR in 1944. Had Roe and Rogan been born at that time? I also voted against Rogan and my vote had very little to do with the effort to impeach Clinton. I am no admirer of Clinton. I voted for Clinton as the lesser of two evils. It had become obvious that the real control of the Republican Party was the "Christian Coalition."

I first registered to vote to support Barry Goldwater. In every election since, I've voted a straight Republican ticket. But I know Republicans who will do what they always do when they see a letter criticizing a Republican. Instead of checking the facts, they rush to their CD-ROM lists and other files to check party registration. I am so tired of the sewage coming from former Congressman Jim Rogan and his campaign manager. I'd rather see more letters arguing about the Armenian Genocide.

More than a few readers, supporters and critics alike, read a letter to the editor this week from Jason Roe, manager of former congressman Jim Rogan's unsuccessful reelection campaign, then asked me some version of, "What the heck brought THAT on?" Actually, there is a story behind Roe's letter. If you didn't see the letter, published Monday, Roe declared that my reports about his boss are motivated not by facts, or even by partisanship, but by jealousy.

I would guess I've been a Republican longer than Jason Roe has been alive, so I feel qualified to respond to his personal attack on Will Rogers. The career arc Roe describes for his boss Rogan ends as it should -- a slide into obscurity. James Rogan forgot that here in America, we hold something called elections to remove leaders we dislike. In many other places and times, leaders of failed palace coups did not have the luxury of a slide into obscurity, surrounded by family and the last die-hard supporters.

Jason C. Roe With Jim Rogan now out of elective office, spending time with his wife and twin daughters 3,000 miles away and about to join President Bush's administration, Will Rogers must be going through depression. I once naively thought his ranting hatred for Jim Rogan was due to political differences. Now I see it for what it is -- envy. Here was Rogan by age 40: L.A. County gang murder prosecutor; named one of the most effective DA's in California; youngest state court judge in California; elected presiding judge of the court; member of the state legislature; named No. 1 in integrity and effectiveness as Glendale's assemblyman; elected majority leader of the Assembly in his freshman term; member of Congress; prosecuted the first impeachment of a president in 130 years.

Claudia Peschiutta Names like Vivian Noh, Suzanne Reed, Jason Roe and Ted Osthelder may not ring any bells for you but, for months, you probably heard from these people more often than you did from your own mother. They are (or were) campaign managers, people who for months dedicated their lives to making sure you remembered names like James Rogan, Adam Schiff and Jack Scott. They told the press what their candidate was thinking when the political hopeful was unavailable for comment.
