Recently I had the privilege of interviewing candidates for the 38th Assembly District for an organization to which I belong. Those interviewed included a Republican (Ross Hopkins), two Democrats (David Ross and Jon M. Lauritzen) and a Natural Law candidate (Virginia Neuman). I was most impressed by the quality of the people who have chosen to run. They gave thoughtful replies to our questions, although they didn't always agree with our positions. I may be naive, but my dilemma is not "choosing the lessor of evils" but realizing that only one can be elected.

Jon M. Lauritzen, a career teacher who proudly championed the views of teachers on the Los Angeles Board of Education, died Monday of cancer, just months after losing a hard-fought campaign for reelection. He was 68. As a Los Angeles Unified School District board member from 2003 until July, Lauritzen was regarded as the closest ally of the teachers' union, United Teachers Los Angeles.

Republican Assembly candidate Tom McClintock on Monday announced that all five of his opponents in last week's GOP primary have endorsed him as the party's nominee for the seat being vacated by Assemblywoman Paula Boland (R-Granada Hills). "All of the candidates were gracious to come together like this," said Tony Strickland, McClintock's campaign manager. McClintock, who won the Republican primary handily, will face Democrat Jon M. Lauritzen in the November general election.

The biggest confirmed-money "candidate" so far in the March school board elections won't even be on the ballot. Three-term incumbent David Tokofsky has more than $222,000 in his campaign fund, dwarfing all other candidates for the moment -- but he decided late last year not to run again. An actual candidate, challenger Johnathan Williams, estimated Thursday that he had $300,000 in the bank, but his campaign had yet to file its report with the city.

Dusting themselves off from primary election fights, Republican and Democratic nominees began on Wednesday to map out strategies for winning legislative and congressional seats in the November general election. "I will do everything I can to make sure that Newt Gingrich is not in charge of the House of Representatives," said Brad Sherman, the Democratic nominee in the 24th Congressional District that includes most of Thousand Oaks.

Bolstered by a $79,000 loan to his own campaign, Canoga Park businessman Ross Hopkins leads the pack of six Republican candidates amassing dollars to pursue the Assembly seat being vacated by Assemblywoman Paula Boland (R-Granada Hills). Hopkins' Assembly campaign had raised $133,338 and had $91,333 left on hand as of Dec. 31, according to financial disclosure statements filed Wednesday. Yet the bulk of the money is a loan from Hopkins' personal finances.

A Democratic activist said he and some San Fernando Valley high school students were rattled last Saturday when Simi Valley police cruisers seemed to "tail" them while they knocked on doors and handed out political literature. But Simi Valley police responded that if the young political canvassers saw officers, it was only because police are always on the streets in a city that FBI statistics show to be among the nation's safest. "It was kind of unnerving," said Jeff Schwartz, a biology teacher from Cleveland High School in Reseda.
