Former Los Angeles City Council President John S. Gibson Jr., a crafty politician who used a folksy approach to wield considerable power in the city over four decades, died Wednesday at his San Pedro home. He was 84. A spokesman for his successor and longtime aide, Councilwoman Joan Milke Flores, said that Gibson had been in poor health for years and had suffered a broken hip last year. Gibson underwent hip surgery about two weeks ago, the spokesman said.
