A candidate for a Glendale-area state Assembly seat is facing scrutiny about whether he lives in the district he is running to represent, as the law requires. The Los Angeles County district attorney's office is looking into whether Sunder Ramani, the Republican candidate on the Nov. 2 ballot, lives in the 43rd Assembly District, as he reported on voter registration and candidacy papers under penalty of perjury. David Demerjian, head of the district attorney's public integrity division, said he was checking on Ramani's residency after receiving complaints about a week ago from people claiming to have evidence that the candidate still lives in a home he and his wife own in La CaƱada Flintridge, outside the district.

A challenge to debate has itself become the subject of one. "Today, I call upon my opponent, Terry Friedman, to come out of hiding, face me and to face the people by agreeing to a series of debates," challenger Tom Franklin, a Beverly Hills Republican, said in a Sept. 26 news release. "We'll be waiting for the Friedman campaign to call." A week later, Assemblyman Friedman (D-Tarzana), who represents the 43rd District, expressed surprise when a reporter inquired about Franklin's challenge.

When it comes to political springboards, it's hard to find a place much bouncier than the 43rd Assembly District. Howard L. Berman (D-Panorama City) represented it from 1973 to 1983, nearly became Assembly Speaker and now sits in Congress. Gray Davis (D-Los Angeles), former Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr.'s chief of staff, succeeded Berman. In just two terms, he amassed more than $1 million in campaign funds, enough to make him the man to beat in the state controller's race.

While the battle to represent the 43rd Assembly District is interesting on its own merits because it features two young, articulate and sophisticated candidates, there are issues just below the surface that make it particularly intriguing. In the race, Democrat Dario Frommer is facing Republican Craig Missakian to represent the district, which includes parts of Glendale, Burbank, Toluca Lake, Los Feliz and Hollywood.

Half a dozen Assembly races in Los Angeles County are being carefully watched by both major political parties. In the battle for control of the Legislature, most of the 24 seats on ballots around the county are not expected to change party hands in the fall, even though incumbents will not be on the ballot in seven of them. The exceptions are the 43rd, 44th, 53rd, 54th, 56th and 60th districts, all in suburban areas that can no longer be counted sure bets by either party.
