With a resounding "aye," the California Assembly on Thursday formally elected Fabian Nunez, a 37-year-old freshman Democrat from Los Angeles, as its next leader. The voice vote was procedural, as Nunez had informally locked up enough support in November to replace Speaker Herb Wesson (D-Culver City). Nunez will be sworn in and take charge of the 80-member body Feb. 9.

Two of three contenders for the top post in the state Assembly dropped out Thursday, leaving freshman Fabian Nunez, a left-of-center Democrat and former union organizer, as the likely next leader of the Legislature's lower house. Nunez, 36, one of a dozen children of immigrant day laborers, is the favorite pick of current Speaker Herb Wesson (D-Culver City).

People who know Fabian Nunez well warn against being deceived by his boyish face and kid-next-door demeanor. In their view, the 36-year-old freshman Democratic legislator from Los Angeles may be young and inexperienced as he prepares to become Assembly speaker, one of the most powerful political positions in California. But he is also a quick learner, a passionate advocate for the poor and a man who loves to win.

Fabian Nunez, the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor's highly successful political director, was named Wednesday to head governmental relations for the Los Angeles Unified School District. Nunez leaves the county AFL - CIO after a three-year stint in which labor membership has reached record highs and has exercised a newfound political impact within the city and the county.

Thumbs up to Fabian Nunez and to others like him who work on behalf of the oppressed in Pomona and neighboring communities (Nov. 3). Fabian has identified the civil rights movement of the 1990s and taken it to where no one has gone before. If we're waiting for another Cesar Chavez or Martin Luther King Jr., I hope that Fabian and others like him have the sustaining spirit within them to continue the good fight of the oppressed Latinos, especially the undocumented immigrant. As for the charge that he is divisive and extreme in his tactics, what's so radical about wanting peace and justice for the Latino worker, family and students?
