Those involved deny it, but a subplot in the heated primary race between Assemblywoman Cathie Wright (R-Simi Valley) and challenger Hunt Braly is the longstanding antagonism between their two powerful political patrons, former U.S. Rep. Bobbi Fiedler and state Sen. Ed Davis (R-Santa Clarita). Braly is Davis' top aide. Wright is a friend and ally of Fiedler, the fiery Northridge housewife who rose to Congress on the strength of her opposition to court-ordered busing in Los Angeles.

The state law that made it virtually impossible to secede from Los Angeles has been changed. The next move, if there is to be one, is up to residents of the San Fernando Valley. In an interview with The Times, former U.S. Rep. Bobbi Fiedler talks about what that move should be. * * * * Question: To paraphrase the last line of a famous novel, now you can begin. Where do things stand now that the law has been changed and secession is possible? Answer: Right now, we are in flux.

In September thousands of Camarillo residents received letters from Rep. Bobbi Fiedler's office telling of her devotion and support of Social Security (strange words from an alleged fiscal conservative). Fiedler voted to eliminate minimum Social Security. Fiedler approved the six-month delay in Social Security cost-of-living increases a few years ago, and Fiedler endorsed taxing a portion of Social Security income. Does that sound like a supporter of Social Security? Telephone attempts and correspondence to Fiedler's office were of no avail in trying to find out why the difference in her voting record and her letter of last September.

Despite a 20-year congressional career marked by a wide range of civil rights initiatives and social reforms, James Corman will be forever linked in most San Fernando Valley minds with Bobbi Fiedler and busing. Corman, a pro-busing Van Nuys Democrat, had faced little opposition before the Republican Fiedler, riding a wave of Valley resentment of a court-ordered desegregation plan, upset him in 1980 by just 752 votes out of 153,770 cast.

If Shakespeare were writing "Hamlet" today, rather than proclaim, "something is rotten in the state of Denmark," he would proclaim, "something is rotten in the San Fernando Valley." In their attempt to win the hearts and minds of the Republican Party, state Sen. Ed Davis of Valencia and Rep. Bobbi Fiedler of Northridge have engaged in a drama befitting "Dynasty" or "Dallas." The controversy surrounding Bobbi Fiedler's indictment may have cost both her and Ed Davis any chance of winning the Republican senatorial nomination.

Former San Fernando Valley lawmaker Bobbi Fiedler was recently appointed to the seven-member governing board of the powerful and controversial Community Redevelopment Agency. The CRA is charged with revitalizing depressed neighborhoods and rejuvenating dilapidated housing and has many tools at its disposal. Some of these tools, such as its power of eminent domain, frighten some community leaders who consider the CRA deaf to their concerns.

A press conference is about to begin and a woman rearranges furniture to provide a better camera angle for television. She directs a camera crew where to place equipment. She explains when and how a visual prop will be introduced. And then she relaxes and joins in some newsroom gossip about the TV business in Los Angeles. Bobbi Fiedler, Northridge congresswoman and Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, is comfortably at work in the final weeks before the June 3 primary.

Former U.S. Rep. Bobbi Fiedler has married her longtime aide, Paul Clarke, in a brief private ceremony attended by family and friends. The bride and groom smashed a drinking glass afterward and were lifted onto chairs by friends. Both are traditions in Jewish weddings. "I'm ecstatic," said Fiedler. "When it's time, it's time," added Clarke.

I was about to write my annual $5 check for Bobbie Fiedler's campaign fund when I read the news about the "sting" operation. After I read of the ex-chief's conspiracy--in her own home--I decided to send the check anyway, and double it. EDWARD S. HILL Van Nuys
