The heir apparent, the Los Angeles City Council candidate with the big bucks and the who's-who litany of endorsements, dismisses all the "coronation" talk ? the pervasive sense that the District 12 race is his to lose. Mitchell Englander insists he is not "the king of the mountain," although he is widely regarded as the heavy favorite to become the next representative of a sprawling chunk of the northwest San Fernando Valley. Among seven council seats to be contested March 8, this is the only one with no incumbent on the ballot.

UNDERRATED Delroy Lindo : With a voice like tumbled gravel and a face with the severity of a clenched fist, this British character actor was a scene-stealer in '90s films such as "Get Shorty" and "Clockers. " Though he drifted off Hollywood's radar in recent years, it's a pleasure to see him again in Fox's "The Chicago Code," where it seems he's up to his old tricks as a powerful politico. TV wasn't hurting for another cop show, but Lindo makes at least one character worth watching.

The Los Angeles City Ethics Commission has launched an investigation into a fund-raising event hosted by seven City Council members to bankroll a charter reform campaign, according to sources. The Feb. 13 breakfast organized by political consultant Harvey Englander has been criticized by government watchdog groups, who charge that it violated the campaign contribution limits imposed by Proposition 208, a landmark campaign reform measure approved by voters in November.

Re "L.A.'s badge plan has lobbyists chafing," Aug. 31 I am as dumbfounded as I am pleased with the Ethics Commission proposal requiring lobbyists to wear a badge identifying themselves as lobbyists when they enter a city building. Dumbfounded because it is a brilliantly simple idea that one does not always expect from City Hall. Pleased because what causes lobbyists to squeal in outrage is almost always a good thing for taxpayers. I offer a suggestion to the Ethics Commission on the design: The badge should be credit-card sized with a large scarlet "L" (apologies to Nathaniel Hawthorne)

A former campaign manager for Councilwoman Lyn Gillespie said Wednesday that he will ask a court to rule her in contempt for missing a recent debtor's hearing to discuss her delinquent $10,000 campaign debt from 1988. "She has never paid one dime of her debt," said Harvey Englander, who managed Gillespie's successful 1988 campaign and alleges that she is using illness as an excuse to dodge court appearances.

City Councilwoman Lyn Gillespie said Wednesday that she will appeal court rulings that allowed her former campaign manager to repossess her car and receive part of her council salary as payment for a delinquent debt. Gillespie, 35, is in a legal dispute with former campaign manager Harvey Englander, who says he is owed $16,000 for work on her successful 1988 campaign, plus legal fees and interest.

An arrest warrant was issued for City Councilwoman Lyn Gillespie after she failed to appear at a recent court hearing to discuss her delinquent debt to her former campaign manager. The bench warrant was issued this month by Orange County Municipal Judge Michael Beecher, court officials said. Gillespie has not been arrested, though, because the Orange County marshal's office has not yet received the paper work from the court, a marshal's spokesman said.

Councilwoman Lyn Gillespie has paid off a $15,000 debt to her former campaign manager, one month after her car was impounded for auction. On Friday, Gillespie's attorney delivered a cashier's check to Harvey Englander, who managed her successful 1988 council campaign, ending a two-year legal battle over how much money Gillespie owed Englander for his services. The check covered the original debt, plus interest and legal fees.

Angelenos who live in the far reaches of the San Fernando Valley have long felt neglected by the government on the other side of the hills. This sense of disconnection and abandonment animates the campaign for the open City Council seat in District 12, the northern Valley district that includes Chatsworth, Northridge, Granada Hills and Porter Ranch. So it's odd that the front-runner among the six candidates should be a consummate City Hall insider: Mitch Englander, chief of staff to outgoing Councilman Greig Smith.
