While most of those recently elected to the Los Angeles City Council have already been sworn in, a quirk in the city's term-limits law has convinced Alex Padilla to wait until next week to take the oath of office for the northeast San Fernando Valley's 7th Council District seat. By waiting until Tuesday, Padilla becomes eligible to serve up to 10 years in office instead of six, according to City Clerk Mike Carey.

A Superior Court judge has ordered a special election in Long Beach to resolve a seesaw City Council race in which the apparent loser emerged with a two-vote victory in June after several uncounted ballots were discovered during a recount. Mike Donelon, a contractor who was declared the winner, will step down, leaving the seat vacant until the special election determines whether he or community activist Tonia Reyes Uranga should represent the city's 7th Council District.

State Republican Party officials will include Los Angeles City Council candidate Lyle Hall in a complaint they will file today over campaign mailers suggesting that Hall and school board member Julie Korenstein, both Democrats, are the choices of Reagan Republicans in Tuesday's elections. State GOP Chairman Frank Visco said Sunday that the complaint to the California Fair Political Practices Commission originally focused on a Korenstein mailer but now will include a Hall flyer, which labels City Councilman Ernani Bernardi a "liberal Democrat."

A grand jury has handed down a 24-count felony indictment against Los Angeles City Councilman Richard Alarcon and his wife, Flora Montes de Oca, accusing them of perjury and voter fraud stemming from their assertion in that they lived in a home in Panorama City. In an indictment unsealed Wednesday, the Los Angeles County Grand Jury said Alarcon and his wife falsely claimed that they lived in a house within Alarcon's 7th Council District in the San Fernando Valley. Alarcon and his wife both pleaded not guilty and were released on their own recognizance.

Money from unions and allies of Mayor Richard Riordan helped Alex Padilla's campaign for the 7th City Council District raise twice as much as rival Corinne Sanchez. Padilla has also gone $186,000 into debt, he reported Friday. That debt signals that Padilla believes he will win the June 8 runoff election, said campaign manager Rick Taylor.
