Woodland Hills businesswoman Tsilah Burman, who finished fifth in last week's election for the 3rd Council District seat, endorsed Judith Hirshberg on Tuesday. "I think of all of the opponents and people in the race, she is the most qualified," Burman said. "On most issues we agree." Unofficial returns from election night had police union director Dennis Zine finishing in first place and Hirshberg in front of council deputy Francine Oschin by 164 votes for the second spot on the runoff ballot.

Two days after an election left him 289 votes short of opponent Jack Weiss, Tom Hayden's quest to join the Los Angeles City Council was hanging by a thread Thursday after the city clerk said there are as many as 1,900 uncounted ballots in the 5th District race. In the west San Fernando Valley's 3rd Council District, where police union director Dennis Zine had 132 votes more than Judith Hirshberg in the election night tally, the clerk said there may be as many as 1,400 uncounted ballots.

Re "3rd District Seat a Magnet for City Hall Veterans," Feb. 19. Francine Oschin is interested in becoming a council member of the 3rd District, but is she interested in meeting with the constituents of the area and letting them hear her point of view? Apparently not, as she did not attend the San Fernando Valley West Democratic Club's forum Feb. 18, after she RSVP'd that she would. She did not even have the courtesy to cancel by phone. She just plain didn't show. The other five candidates were there and had a lively discussion in front of a well-attended audience.

Dennis Zine, a bundle of frenetic energy from start to finish, wasn't in a mingling mood. Locked in the city's tightest contest on election night--a race he led by a precarious 132 votes Wednesday--Zine was barely a guest at his own victory party as he paced the hallways of the Warner Center Marriott and ducked outside to gulp fresh air from a 17th-floor balcony. "Talk about stress," he muttered. "I just can't keep still."

The first round was close--so close that Dennis Zine, the front-runner in the race to represent the southwest San Fernando Valley on the Los Angeles City Council, wasn't sure who his runoff opponent would be until more than a week after the April 10 election. Now, the second act is shaping up as another taut contest between two evenly matched candidates who both boast years of experience at City Hall.

Yes, it's the National Organization for Women, but that doesn't mean the group's endorsements always go to female candidates. NOW's Los Angeles chapter underscored that Thursday when its political action committee announced its picks in the Los Angeles municipal elections. Four of the eight people who got NOW's backing for the April 10 primary are men, all in contests with at least one woman competitor.

Developers of the Ahmanson Ranch project will continue to face hard-line opposition from a new 3rd District member of the Los Angeles City Council, as candidates for the post outlined strategies Tuesday to blunt the negative effect of the project on the west San Fernando Valley. All five candidates who attended a forum at the West Valley Jewish Community Center in West Hills voiced opposition to the housing development as presently proposed, but they differed on what to do.
