Re "Goldberg Protests Length of Strike-Related Jail Stay," April 27: If L.A. Councilwoman Jackie Goldberg doesn't "want law enforcement resources tied up" during the Democratic National Convention or efforts "duplicated," then she should tell her constituents to obey the law. Getting arrested is not the method for proving some point. I hope the city attorney files charges against her. But, of course, it's apparent she expects special treatment. She was very fortunate; according to the law, she could have stayed there for 40 more hours.

ARISE, ye seekers of mystic visions and faith-based brushwork, and behold the Highland Park field office of state Assemblywoman Jackie Goldberg (D-Los Angeles). Here hangs a painting called "The Soul's Progress," showing three hooded figures and a jumble of symbols that include a cross, a crescent, a rainbow and a bull's-eye. Over here, a series of UFOs hover beneath text that's part English, part Romanian.

For the past seven years, Jackie Goldberg was the Los Angeles City Council's major pain in the behind. Now the question is, how will the city get along without her truculent energy? It looks like the city will have to, however. Because no one on or running for the council has what it takes to fill her place. Just weeks after Goldberg left to take her new Assembly seat in Sacramento, City Hall already seems quieter.

Los Angeles City Councilwoman Jackie Goldberg on Tuesday threw a substantial obstacle in front of Mayor Richard Riordan's plans to put his business tax reform proposal before voters in June when she presented lawmakers with her own plan for overhauling the commercial tax structure. Perhaps as a sign that the mayor knows his plan is having trouble in the council committee overseeing tax reform, Riordan showed up in the middle of the lengthy meeting.

To Los Angeles City Councilwoman Jackie Goldberg, a new facility serving homeless adults is just what Hollywood needs. To many of her constituents, Hollywood needs almost anything but. Goldberg has thrown her support behind a proposed center in central Hollywood that would offer counseling, job training and housing referrals to homeless adults. While the area has a number of organizations catering to street youth, there are few facilities serving adults, who make up an estimated 60% to 70% of the 9,500 homeless in Hollywood.

A dozen public health clinics, youth sports leagues and job-training programs were guaranteed funding in next year's Los Angeles city budget, after an impassioned appeal Wednesday by Councilwoman Jackie Goldberg.

With one kiss, they made history. It happened at Los Angeles City Councilwoman Jackie Goldberg's inauguration, a celebration of all the causes that the ex-Berkeley radical has championed since the 1960s. Civil rights, public schools, gay rights. But it was also unmistakably the debut of the first openly gay member of the Los Angeles City Council. Goldberg's housemate and lover of the last 14 years, Sharon Stricker, read from a feminist lesbian poet.

The debate ended, the bill went down in defeat, and Jackie Goldberg began to cry. It wasn't even her measure--just another legislator's proposal to require safety features on swimming pools to prevent toddlers from drowning. But when her fellow Democrats failed to provide the votes to pass it this spring, Goldberg wept at her wooden desk in the rear of the California Assembly, because she could not hold back her frustration.

The Los Angeles City Council on Friday rejected a second attempt to appoint Jackie Goldberg's former chief of staff to serve out the remainder of the ex-councilwoman's term. City lawmakers said Friday that they would prefer to appoint whoever wins in the upcoming election to finish out the last few months of Goldberg's term, which expires June 30. If there is no clear winner in the April 10 election, council members said, they will appoint the winner of the June 5 runoff.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed a suit Monday in federal court, arguing that residents of the 13th Council District have been deprived of representation by the City Council's refusal to fill the seat. "Our nation was founded on the principle that taxation without representation is unjust," said Dan Tokaji, staff attorney with the ACLU of Southern California. "But that's exactly what's happening to over 250,000 residents of this city."

Los Angeles city officials said farewell Friday to Councilwoman Jackie Goldberg, toasting the assemblywoman-elect for her 7 1/2 years on the city's governing body. Although colleagues said they didn't always agree with Goldberg, they said they respected her dedication to causes such as a living wage for city workers and opposition to Mayor Richard Riordan's efforts to expand the Police Department. "What I like about you is you are not a rubber stamp," Councilman Nate Holden told Goldberg.
