To partisans, they are "Phony Tony" and "Taxin' Jackson." Tony Strickland, 38, might call himself the alternative energy executive, detractors say, but he's still the same right-wing Republican who consistently voted against the environment during his days in the California Assembly. And Hannah-Beth Jackson? The 58-year-old Democrat is so liberal that she's never seen a tax she didn't like, according to Strickland's supporters. Voters couldn't have a clearer choice, both sides say.

A month before election, Assembly candidate Robin Sullivan has her work cut out for her. The Republican challenger to Assemblywoman Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara) trails badly in fund-raising and in voter polls. Her campaign, in fact, is $57,000 in the hole, it reported last week. Now party insiders say that big money expected from Republican Assembly leaders may not materialize unless polls show Sullivan's position improving over the next two weeks.

Republican challenger Bob Pohl withdrew Thursday from his race against Assemblywoman Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara), saying he needs to dedicate his time to fighting a recently diagnosed case of lymphatic cancer. Pohl, 53, an educational consultant and former president of the Santa Barbara school board, said he found a lump in his thigh three weeks ago, and doctors confirmed his illness a week later after a fund-raiser featuring former vice presidential candidate Jack Kemp.

She arrived in the Capitol green and eager just six months ago. But on this warm May day, Assemblywoman Hannah-Beth Jackson is already presiding over the Legislature's lower house. From a podium high above the Assembly floor, Jackson clicks smoothly from one bill to the next. A lawyer by training, she is calm, professional--and fluent in parliamentary jargon. When chatter breaks out among members wandering the floor, she bangs her gavel twice. "Members, there will be order in the house!"

Hannah-Beth Jackson won't be sworn in as the 35th District's new assemblywoman until Monday, but she literally took office Friday. Boasting that she has saved thousands of taxpayer dollars in an unusually amiable transfer of power, Jackson accepted the keys to the Santa Barbara district office of outgoing Assemblyman Brooks Firestone. On hand for the changing of the guard were several of Jackson's newly hired aides, who will work in Sacramento and Santa Barbara.

Ventura County would lose one Democratic congressman and gain a new one under a proposed redistricting plan unveiled Friday. Congressman Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) would hand off Oxnard and Port Hueneme to Congresswoman Lois Capps (D-Santa Barbara) under the new plan, while Congressman Brad Sherman (D-Sherman Oaks) would be edged out of the Conejo Valley portion of his district altogether.

On the surface, it's campaigning as usual in the 35th Assembly District race. Democrat Hannah-Beth Jackson, a family-law attorney, is competing with Chris Mitchum, son of the late actor Robert Mitchum and former Screen Actors Guild official, for the right to represent the district, which covers Ventura, Santa Paula, Ojai and most of Santa Barbara County. The dialogue runs the usual gamut from abortion to gun control.
