Four political outsiders are battling the mayor and a planning commissioner for two seats on the Agoura Hills City Council in the bedroom community's fifth general election, a race defined as much by personalities and perceptions as by issues. The four outsiders are fueling their campaigns with charges that Mayor Louise Rishoff and Planning Commissioner Joan E.

Although it appeared that Agoura Hills Mayor Louise Rishoff won reelection Tuesday night by a scant two votes, election officials on Wednesday said the race ultimately will be determined by a handful of uncounted absentee ballots. News that the election was undecided surprised Rishoff and challenger Paul G. Mueller, both of whom went to bed Tuesday night thinking the campaign was over. "I assumed that when they gave a final count, they meant a final count," Rishoff said Wednesday.

The Agoura Hills City Council will call a special election for a controversial utility tax implemented in 1994 without a public vote. In doing so, the council is going against the wishes of a local anti-tax group, which wants the tax rescinded immediately and put before voters in November. The council will meet Thursday to schedule a date for the election, City Manager Dave Adams said. The earliest date that the city could legally hold an election would be June 25, he said.

Supporters of Measure E, a special parcel tax on the Nov. 4 ballot in Agoura Hills, are campaigning to get the word out about the need for a new library in the area. But a small group of opponents said the tax is premature and the city should go to the people for money only when all other avenues are exhausted. "This is the only way we can see that we will get [a library] in the foreseeable future," said Darlene McBane, a board member of the Friends of the New Agoura Library.

Candidates in Tuesday's elections in Agoura Hills and Westlake Village all agree on what their cities' big issues are, but each has a different approach to addressing them. In Agoura Hills, the five council candidates--two incumbents and three newcomers--say attracting new, quality commercial developers is the key to the city's sound financial future.

With less than a month to go before the Dec. 7 deadline to gather the required number of signatures, the leader of a movement to recall the Agoura Hills City Council was predicting victory. Barbara Murphy, an Agoura Hills resident who is spearheading the movement, predicted Tuesday that her group will get the 2,454 signatures--or 20% of the city's 12,026 registered voters--it needs by Dec. 7 to force a recall election. "We think we can get (the signatures), definitely," Murphy said.

The city of Agoura Hills has asked a Los Angeles Superior Court judge to reconsider her decision to order a recount of 94 signatures on a recall petition against Councilwoman Fran Pavley. Judge Diane Wayne ruled in May that Agoura Hills and the County Registrar/Recorder's office had abused their discretion by throwing out the signatures on a technicality. But the city says the recall group made misleading statements to the judge.

In a race that wasn't decided until 10 days after the election, Agoura Hills Mayor Louise Rishoff has hung on to win by a six-vote margin over her nearest challenger, the Los Angeles County registrar of voters announced Friday after counting absentee ballots. Rishoff had led challenger Peter G. Mueller by only two votes--1,525 to 1,523--after the Nov. 5 election. When the absentee ballots were counted, her winning margin was 1,616 to Mueller's 1,610.

Six candidates for the Agoura Hills City Council filed campaign finance statements by Thursday's 6 p.m. deadline, including one incumbent and two others who've run as candidates in past elections. Paul (Gary) Mueller, who owns Gary's Auto Parts and came within six votes of capturing a council seat in the 1991 election, led all candidates with more than $6,100 in his war chest.

Officials in Agoura Hills and Westlake Village reminded residents this week that the deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 4 election is little more than two weeks away. Residents have until Oct. 6 to register, or re-register if new to the area, with the Los Angeles County registrar-recorder's office to be eligible to participate in the election. Voters must be U.S. citizens, at least 18 years old by the day of the election, and California residents by the Oct. 6 deadline, officials said.
