California gets CPR (Curt Pringle to the Rescue): After reading your Jan. 6 interview with the new Assembly speaker, I have hope for our future. Anyone who puts jobs as his first priority has my vote. MALCOLM SACKS Redondo Beach I remember when Republicans, wanting desperately for Pringle (R-Garden Grove) to win his Assembly seat, had "security guards" and signs posted at polling places in Orange County threatening that only citizens (maybe, only white) could vote. I remember the anger and shame I felt that someone could intimidate and scare people out of voting in this day and age. I don't really care that Pringle denies having any role in this incident.

The state attorney general has concluded that the mayor of Anaheim and members of the Los Angeles County and Orange County transportation boards may not serve simultaneously on California's High-Speed Rail Authority board. The formal opinion, issued Wednesday, was prompted by a controversy over the multiple public hats worn by Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle and Los Angeles County transportation official Richard Katz. The opinion says that serving in leadership positions at local agencies that are coordinating routes and station development for the proposed $43-billion bullet train is legally "incompatible" with an appointment to the rail board under state law. In addition, an official is deemed to have forfeited his or her first public office upon assuming a second, impermissible office, the state lawyers said.

It's hard to picture a more unthreatening guy than Curt Pringle. Even today, at 31, he still looks more like your brainy nephew than a political heavy. Yet that's the tag Pringle carried into the state Legislature following his 1988 election victory in Orange County's 71st Assembly District.

Two prominent California High-Speed Rail Authority leaders who are already under scrutiny for holding potentially "incompatible" public offices have received tens of thousands of dollars in consulting fees from firms with financial interests in the $43-billion project. Rail board chairman and Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle, a public affairs consultant, has been an advisor to a major construction supplier that owns property along proposed bullet train routes, records and interviews show.

Like watching a classic old movie where everybody knows the lines by heart, Orange County Republicans gathered around former President Ronald Reagan on Friday and basked in the glow of another campaign finale. "Can I ask one favor of you?" Reagan finally said to a crowd already anticipating the next sentence. "Let's go out and win this one for the Gipper."

As opponents traded salvos in the battle over Assembly leadership, Speaker Brian Setencich--a Republican elected last year mainly by Democrats--predicted he has picked up sufficient Republican backing to remain at the top in 1996. Meanwhile, his main challenger, GOP Leader Curt Pringle of Garden Grove, and the party's conservative establishment turned up the heat on lawmakers still waffling over whom to back for Speaker. In an attempt to aid Pringle, California GOP Chairman John S.

Curt Pringle was a 29-year-old Republican upstart running for the Assembly in 1988 when he did something that cast a shadow on the rest of his political career. On election day, his campaign hired uniformed security guards to stand outside polling stations in heavily Latino neighborhoods, holding placards reading "Non-Citizens Can't Vote." Today, Pringle is running for mayor of Anaheim.

In three marathon sessions this week, Assembly Republicans defined the legislative year, the upcoming November elections and themselves better than Democrats ever could. As they approved roughly 300 bills, the GOP-controlled lower house made it clear that Republicans, if they have their way, will make major tax cuts, drastically limit welfare and the right to file certain lawsuits, and further toughen laws against street criminals, while easing up on business restrictions.

Seizing a post they've coveted for a quarter-century, Assembly Republicans on Thursday ousted Speaker Brian Setencich and replaced him with Orange County's Curt Pringle, a staunch conservative backed by the statewide GOP hierarchy. Pringle's election was greeted by cheers from Republicans, who stood, applauded and called out, "Go, Curt." Across the aisle, Democrats sat glumly.

Amid budget talks last week, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and legislative leaders tried to ease restrictions in a state conflict-of-interest law so that two prominent officials from Anaheim and Los Angeles could remain on the board of the California high-speed rail project. Their attempt to retain Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle and Richard Katz, a member of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority board, would have been tacked onto the state budget bill. However, Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento)

Los Angeles Times Community activists from Orange County sent complaints to the state attorney general this week, alleging that two prominent transportation leaders from Los Angeles and Anaheim have conflicts of interest because they sit on the board of the California high speed rail project while holding other public offices. Tony Bushala, a Fullerton businessman, and Denis Fitzgerald, a mayoral candidate in Anaheim, are seeking an investigation of Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle, the chairman of the California High Speed Rail Authority board, and Richard Katz, a Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority board member.

Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle, one of Orange County's few big-city mayors, has won the endorsement of his chief critic, and it appears he will run unopposed for reelection in November. "He's done a great job for the city, and he deserves another four years," said Anaheim Councilman Harry Sidhu, who has sparred with Pringle. "Even though we might have our differences on a few of the issues, they are not significant enough for me not to endorse a man with a great vision for our city."

Gambling has been illegal in Anaheim for 25 years, so why is the City Council poised to ask voters to permanently ban wagering in a city dominated by family-friendly Disneyland? That's what Anaheim Councilman Harry Sidhu would like to know. "We'll never have gambling in Anaheim," Sidhu said. "We don't need it. Casinos are only for the cities trying to raise revenues. We have plenty of revenue sources here. We are not a poor city. Why even go to the cost of putting this thing on the ballot?

For the mayor of California's 10th-largest city, a high-profile court battle against the home team was hardly a welcome fight, especially in an election year. The legal crusade led by Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle against the Angels baseball franchise will cost the city millions of dollars, at the least. It may also cost it the goodwill of team owner Arte Moreno. It has made the city, for a year, the butt of jokes.

Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle broke with mayors nationwide Tuesday by proposing to abolish local pay TV fees and to allow phone companies to sidestep the rules that cable companies currently must follow. In his state of the city address, Pringle said the typical cable franchise agreements and "other restrictive policies" built into old laws were "standing in the way" of creating a more competitive pay TV market. He wants to allow AT&T Inc.

In a legal fight rife with statewide political implications, attorneys will do battle here Friday over whether a Democrat placed on the ballot with Republican help to fuel a GOP victory in a key Orange County election last month should be forced to tell all. Attorneys for the Orange County Democratic Party are attempting to get candidate Laurie Campbell as well as Assembly GOP Leader Curt Pringle of Garden Grove to sit down for a deposition in hopes of proving a Republican conspiracy.

NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue will meet with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle and USC football Coach Pete Carroll in a whirlwind midweek visit to Southern California, the league announced Monday. Tagliabue's trip west is not expected to produce a definitive announcement about the future of the NFL in the Los Angeles area, which has been without pro football since after the 1994 season.

After a regular-season boycott of Angel home games, Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle said Monday he would temporarily put aside his differences over the team placing Los Angeles in its name and attend tonight's playoff opener against the New York Yankees. Pringle will be host to seven children from the Anaheim Boys & Girls Club in the city suite. "Having the Angels in the playoffs is exciting for the whole community," Pringle said. "I want to make sure I'm clear in supporting the team.
