Fullerton City Council

Recent editorials, letters to the editor and news reports regarding the controversy surrounding the forthcoming Fullerton council election may have created a misperception in some minds. Current published accounts appear to imply that voters in the June 7 recall election called for a special election as opposed to electing recalled council member replacements during the next general election. The fact is our ballot choice was between a special election and replacement by appointment, should the recall prevail.

In a campaign to oust unqualified masseuses and close establishments that may be fronts for prostitution, the Fullerton City Council voted unanimously Wednesday for tougher inspections and more careful monitoring of massage businesses. The council postponed until July 18 a vote on whether to increase masseuse training and fees. "We don't want to throw the baby out with the bathwater," Councilman Chris Norby said. "We don't want to punish the innocent to slice out the guilty."

Despite dozens of impassioned pleas, the Fullerton City Council on Tuesday denied a request for a $1.8-million loan to help preservationists save the historic Fox Theatre. Voting 4 to 1, the council -- acting as the city's redevelopment agency -- rejected giving the loan to the Fullerton Historic Theatre Foundation, which wants to buy the 1920s-era landmark. The theater is slated for sale to a developer, who plans to raze it for apartments. The Fox's owner is asking $3.

After a whirlwind, blistering race to replace a disgraced former state legislator, Orange County Supervisor Chris Norby came in first among five candidates Tuesday but fell short of the majority needed to avoid a runoff. In the special election for the 72nd Assembly District seat, Norby jumped to an early lead over fellow Republicans -- longtime party activist Linda Ackerman and political newcomer Richard Faher -- Democrat John MacMurray and Jane Rands of the Green Party. From the outset, the race in the GOP stronghold was viewed as a showdown between Norby, 59, and Ackerman, 65, a member of the Metropolitan Water District board and the wife of former Republican legislative leader Dick Ackerman.

Henry W. Wedaa, the embattled chairman of the Air Quality Management District board, defended himself before the City Council on Tuesday after being blasted by a group of small-business owners. Wedaa, Orange County's representative on the board and a Yorba Linda councilman, has been facing a stiff challenge from some elected officials and business leaders who hope to unseat him. Last month Wedaa ran neck and neck with Costa Mesa Councilman Peter F. Buffa in a bid for the seat.

Hundreds of residents broke into cheers after the Fullerton City Council rejected a proposed flour mill that opponents said would dust their nearby homes and create a blight on the horizon with its 16 silos, each 102 feet tall. After a public hearing that lasted more than five hours and drew more than 350 residents, the City Council on Tuesday voted 4 to 1 to block the mill at the old Hunt-Wesson cannery.

Your article on the proposed Moulton Smart Street ("Not a Through Street," May 23) focuses on the trade-offs cities face when balancing regional traffic needs with local community values. To their credit, most local elected officials and residents interviewed wanted their cities to be more than just conduits for ever rising traffic volumes and speeds. Certainly benign improvements like signal coordination and computerization must be completed. But the physical widening of streets, the removal of on-street parking and the expanding of intersections into vast asphalt wastelands are enormously costly both in money and to the unique ambience that we all hold dear of our individual communities.

Ho Chung and Julie Sa became pioneers to their fellow Korean Americans in 1992, when the two were elected as the first Korean Americans to serve on city councils in Orange County. Chung was the first non-Caucasian ever elected to the Garden Grove City Council, while Sa became the first Korean American woman ever elected to the Fullerton City Council.

Orange County prosecutors asked the state attorney general's office Wednesday to investigate allegations that a longtime Fullerton council member has violated election rules by living outside the city. The request followed a complaint filed last week with Fullerton officials alleging that Councilwoman Julie Sa lives in a Chino Hills home but rents an apartment in Fullerton so she can keep her council seat, authorities said.
