In a low-key election, typical campaign strategy is to identify the voters most likely to support your candidate and quietly but repeatedly urge them to the polls. That's what's happening now in the campaign to replace former Anaheim state Sen. John Seymour. Except for a few lawn signs, the race is almost invisible. But like miners digging for votes, the candidates are sending letters and making phone calls to the relative handful of voters most sympathetic to their issues.

The City Council has decided to appoint someone to fill out the council term of William G. Steiner, who resigned Monday to join the County Board of Supervisors.

A Superior Court judge ruled Friday that Mike Spurgeon's name can be on the Nov. 5 ballot, even though the City Council member missed the deadline for filing his nominating papers. Judge Tully H. Seymour agreed with attorneys for Spurgeon and City Clerk Cassandra Cathcart, who both argued that the missed deadline was a simple mistake.

Voters looking for a difference in the eight Republican candidates seeking to replace former Anaheim state Sen. John Seymour won't find it on the issue of taxes. Despite a multibillion-dollar budget deficit facing the state government, several leading candidates in the race for the 35th Senate District seat said in their first public forum Thursday that higher taxes are not the answer. "If anything, we are to lower taxes," said Assemblyman Nolan Frizzelle (R-Huntington Beach).
