With less than a week remaining before Election Day, the race to fill Los Angeles' only vacant City Council seat has come down to a battle of pavement-pounding, mailbox campaigns, dueling for endorsements and a scramble for political money. Among the 13 candidates in the Southwest 10th District, former state Sen. Nate Holden and Homer Broome Jr. are emerging as the leading contenders.

Three years after coming under fire for contracts that paid millions of dollars to City Hall insiders, the Los Angeles Airport Commission is poised to approve a coveted parking lots contract that would benefit a longtime ally of Mayor Tom Bradley and cost substantially more than a competing proposal. The looming contract with AMPCO Parking would cost the city $2.4 million more over three years than an agreement with a company recommended by the airport's staff.

Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley lost his strongest City Council ally in Tuesday's election--and much more. No longer can the mayor call on Council President Pat Russell, defeated by Ruth Galanter, to smooth the way for favorable votes on mayoral appointments, projects and policies. The defeat of Russell on the Westside and of Homer Broome Jr. in Bradley's home district were more signs that his citywide political power is diminishing.

With the election two weeks away, Los Angeles City Council candidate Homer Broome Jr. made it clear Monday that he plans to try to overtake his rival, former state Sen.

With only days to go before the election Tuesday, Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley is stumping for two City Council candidates whose victories would bolster his political prestige and help preserve his bargaining strength with the council. "You won't find a better elected official in the entire country than your council person, Pat Russell," Bradley told about 120 people at a Westchester senior citizens' center Thursday.

From a hospital bed where she lay recovering from nearly fatal stab wounds, Ruth Galanter scored a stunning victory Tuesday over Los Angeles City Council President Pat Russell in a dramatic election that signals the rise of a new constituency in city politics and sends troubling signals to the mayor's office. Galanter and 10th Council District candidate Nate Holden, a former state senator, were victors in council runoff elections against Russell and Homer Broome Jr.

Los Angeles City Council President Pat Russell called it a soap opera, her words for the life-and-death drama that nearly killed her opponent, traumatized Russell's campaign and, for a while, preempted the political focus on both of the City Council runoff races to be decided Tuesday. Before it happened, before candidate Ruth Galanter was stabbed in the neck by a prowler in her home May 6, the elections were important in their own right.

The sign in the flower bed proclaimed "Nate Holden for City Council," but Homer Broome Jr. says he likes challenges. With his wife, Marian, at his side, Broome strode up the walkway and rang the doorbell. "Oh, no," said the woman who answered the door. "Oh, yes!" Broome replied. The woman did a double take and laughed. "I thought you were Jehovah's Witnesses!"
