Two months after the Diamond Bar City Council election, a judge may have finally resolved a tight race by throwing out candidate Don Schad's legal challenge to Carol Herrera's victory. Herrera tied with Schad--each received 1,609 votes--but then gained victory by the drawing of lots last month. However, before the drawing, Schad challenged Diamond Bar's counting of three ballots.

Diamond Bar City Council candidate Don Schad might have to wait another month to see if he won a seat in November's election. A Los Angeles Superior Court judge Friday set a hearing for Jan. 18 on a challenge by Schad to a vote recount that left him and opponent Carol Herrera in a dead heat. Judge Robert O'Brien ordered Schad to show cause at that hearing why the election result--a deadlock of 1,609 votes each--should not stand.

A Diamond Bar group submitted a referendum petition Thursday to put a newly adopted redevelopment plan before the voters. The plan, approved by the City Council last month, would ensure that property taxes from a large commercial district be reinvested in that area rather than be distributed to schools, the county and the city. Terry L. Birrell, president of Diamond Bar Residents and Business Assn., said the plan diverts $300 million of property taxes into private pockets.

He's at it again. After losing one lawsuit and a tie-breaking lottery for a Diamond Bar City Council seat, Don Schad this week filed a second lawsuit contesting a recount vote that ended in a tie between him and Carol Herrera. His last suit against the city clerk was thrown out of court because a judge said it was filed against the wrong person. The new suit correctly names the county registrar as the official election officer.

The trial of Republican activist Rhonda Carmony on misdemeanor charges stemming from a 1991 City Council race in Diamond Bar was indefinitely postponed Wednesday at the request of her attorney. Attorney Creighton Laz said the pending trial on six misdemeanor violations of the state Political Reform Act should be subordinate to the three felony election fraud charges she faces.

Diamond Bar is faced with a deadlocked election for the first time in the city's history, officials said. A recount of the votes for an open Diamond Bar City Council seat showed that candidates Don Schad and Carol Herrera each received 1,609 votes. On Tuesday, both candidates requested a runoff election. "The prescribed way of dealing with this by code is to draw lots," said City Manager Terry Belanger. But both candidates expressed concern that a coin flip is no way to end a tough campaign.

A top aide to Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach) faces a July 16 trial on charges she violated the state's Political Reform Act in 1991. Municipal Judge William Evans set the trial date Wednesday in the case against Rhonda Carmony, Rohrabacher's campaign manager. Carmony, 26, is charged with seven misdemeanors for her alleged role in the production of a campaign mailer used to attack a Diamond Bar City Council member who was running for reelection.
