Contributors to city campaigns would be barred from donating more than $1,000 to any individual candidate under a plan to be considered Tuesday by the City Council.

Mayor Fred Hunter's anti-drug campaign got off to a rocky start this month, with officials of an Anaheim school district refusing to allow his rallies because they were too political. Hunter, who is seeking reelection as mayor in November, has developed an hourlong program called "Hunter's Brigade" for local schools. The assemblies are supposed to feature the mayor, professional cheerleaders and local professional sports figures in talks to the students about drug abuse.

In a sharp, contentious debate Thursday, Mayor Fred Hunter and his challenger in the Nov. 3 election, Councilman Tom Daly, each tried to portray himself as a strong leader and his opponent as a pawn of special interest. Daly came out swinging in his opening statement to the crowd of 75 people at Loara High School saying, "the incumbent mayor has not kept his promises to the residents of this city, and we need a mayor who is a stable and careful decision-maker."

On Monday, the first day of candidate filing for City Council offices, Savanna High School graduate Manuel Ontiveros said his election would bring a "more diverse" voice to a government he said was dominated by older representatives.
