In what her opponents called a ploy to avoid criticism for her pro-development stance as election time nears, Santa Monica City Councilwoman Christine E. Reed said she will not vote on a controversial five-story office-building project. Reed said during a public hearing on the project Tuesday night that her home is too close to the site, and that the value of her home could be affected by her vote on the project. Reed's home is three blocks from the site.

Christine Emerson Reed, former Santa Monica mayor and city councilwoman, died Wednesday of cancer at UCLA Medical Center. She was 52. Reed served a record four terms, more than 15 years, on the City Council before she was defeated for reelection in 1990 by Santa Monicans for Renters Rights. She was one of Santa Monica's first environmental activists, working in 1971 to block a plan that would have replaced the Santa Monica Pier with a causeway leading to a fake island with a 35-story hotel.

The 41st Assembly District Republican primary is winding down in much the way it began: as a party-credentials battle in which four men are attempting to portray front-runner Christine Reed of Santa Monica as too far removed from the conservative wing to be a "real Republican." She has even--horrors!--taken a few dollars from the enemy, registered Democrats or those who have donated money to other Democratic candidates.

Former Santa Monica mayor and councilwoman Christine Reed responded to efforts to rename Lincoln Park in her honor with the wit and political savvy she demonstrated during her 16 years on the City Council: She declined the honor. Reed, 51, said she could not in good conscience go along with the "lovely" idea because she had steadfastly opposed renaming parks after people during her years in office. "It would be hypocritical of me," she said.

If you listen closely to Assemblyman Terry B. Friedman and Republican challenger Christine Reed as they battle over an Assembly seat shared by the Westside and the San Fernando Valley, you would think the contest comes down to a fight between Gov. Pete Wilson and Assembly Speaker Willie Brown. For the budget crisis that pitted the Republican governor against the Democratic leader and kept California issuing IOUs for two months is very much a part of the 41st Assembly District contest.

George Bush is proving to be a problem for Republican Christine Reed as she wages an uphill battle for the state Assembly. California's economy remains mired in the worst downturn since the Depression, a fact of life that seems destined to cost Bush the nation's biggest electoral prize and hurt Reed in the process.

Former Santa Monica City Councilwoman Christine E. Reed announced Monday that she will seek the Republican nomination in a reconfigured Assembly district stretching from Canoga Park to Malibu and Santa Monica. Reed, 47, failed to win reelection in 1990, placing fourth in a field of nine candidates after she was targeted for defeat by a Santa Monica tenants rights group.

When the state denied the gnatcatcher special protection as an endangered bird on Friday, the decision was music to the ears of the Building Industry Assn. To protect the songbird, environmentalists said thousands of acres of Southern California real estate should be off-limits to developers. Christine Diemer Reed and the BIA have been arguing against that type of species-by-species approach to wildlife protection.
