A Superior Court judge on Wednesday ended days of haggling between lawyers for the City of Los Angeles and Warren Furutani, ruling that Furutani had collected enough valid voter signatures to qualify for the ballot in the 15th City Council District race. The city clerk's office disqualified Furutani from the contest 10 days ago, asserting that only 433 of his 973 signatures were from registered voters now living in the district--67 short of the requisite 500. That Furutani, a two-term member and past president of the Los Angeles Unified School District board, had been disqualified stunned both his opponents and supporters in the 15th District, which includes Watts, Wilmington, San Pedro and Harbor City/Harbor Gateway.

Their names still appear on deeds and maps. The large cattle ranches of the San Fernando Valley have provided community names--Encino and Tujunga, for instance--that are still used today. In 1834, the San Fernando Mission, along with other California missions, was secularized, and mission lands became public property. The Mexican government divided the lands among Indians, others who already were living in California and new Mexican settlers, by giving out land grants.

Not long ago it was unthinkable that Joan Milke Flores would have to worry about being ousted from her City Council seat. But two high-profile defeats in bids for state and federal office have changed the conventional wisdom about Flores in the 15th District, which stretches from San Pedro to Watts. She lost to incumbent Democrat March Fong Eu in the 1990 race for secretary of state, then was upset by Democrat Jane Harman in November in the 36th Congressional District race.

If you don't like the Los Angeles City Council--and polls show that fewer and fewer people do--stick around. Things are about to change. Voters this spring will elect at least two newcomers to the council: Incumbents Ernani Bernardi and Michael Woo, who are running for mayor, are leaving behind open seats. And unusually large fields and stiff competition confront several of the six council members who hope to keep their jobs.
