Countdown to Election Day : 10 Days Left in the L.A. Mayoral Campaign

May 29, 1993


How the mayoral candidates spent their day:

Richard Riordan disclosed a third alcohol-related arrest--for drunk driving in 1975. Riordan said that he had been confused when he said during a radio debate Wednesday that he had been arrested twice--about 25 years ago--for drunk driving and interfering with an officer. Woo asked Riordan to authorize law enforcement agencies to release his full criminal record, but Riordan denied that he had any other brushes with the law other than traffic tickets. Woo picked up the endorsement of the National Organization for Women's local political action committee.


How the campaign was waged in the realm of advertising:

Riordan began running a TV ad focusing on his record of creating jobs.


Some of the key events on the candidates' schedules today:

* Woo will hold an 11 a.m. news conference featuring former employees of a company in which Riordan was an investor.

* Riordan will attend a rally at 10 a.m. at his Koreatown campaign headquarters, followed by another rally at 11 a.m. at his Crenshaw district office.
