A tie for the second seat required eight subsequent ballots before incumbent Jack V. Goodman stepped aside in favor of Herbert A. Beck, owner of a film and audio recording company.
Project manager William A. Kellar denied charges during the election campaign that the Community Redevelopment Agency worked with sympathetic members of the incumbent PAC to railroad Hollywood redevelopment.
"There have been some charges that the present PAC does not constitute a representative of the area," he said. "No one has been able to prove that, and it's just unfair to the people who have been sitting on the PAC all year."
Although he said that Redevelopment Agency commissioners have final authority to make decisions, Kellar promised that the agency would be responsive to the PAC regardless of who sits on it.
