I am carrying out the laws and the state Constitution equally and fairly for everyone," said the 58-year-old Jacobs. "I can't tell you why my employees run against me," he said. "It is not unique to Orange County.

County employee Larry L. Bales will challenge his boss, Assessor Bradley Jacobs, in the 1998 election, Bales announced Thursday. It would be Bales' third attempt to dislodge Jacobs, the county's elected assessor since 1978. Jacobs hasn't formally announced his decision to seek reelection. In a news release, Bales claimed that Jacobs over-assessed properties during the 1990s economic recession, resulting in tens of thousands of taxpayer appeals.

The tense relationship between Assessor Bradley L. Jacobs and the county supervisors suddenly culminated earlier this year when the longtime incumbent quietly gave up his bid for reelection. That opened the door to a crowded field of candidates. It also raised the prospect that the manner in which this important office operates could drastically change. Things could not have been much worse. The supervisors were openly irritated at Jacobs' unwillingness to apply for a $6.

The unexpected decision by Assessor Bradley L. Jacobs not to seek reelection has triggered a stream of last-minute candidates. By Wednesday's deadline, seven people had filed candidacy papers for the office, which manages the assessment of billions of dollars of Orange County property. Five candidates emerged after Jacobs declined to file reelection papers Friday, including Assistant Assessor Webster Guillory, Jacobs' second-in-command who ran in 1984 for Los Angeles County assessor.

Orange County supervisors Tuesday ducked what could become a far-reaching legal battle by voting not to challenge a recent court ruling that found a key method for assessing property unconstitutional. Instead, they punted to independently elected Assessor Webster J. Guillory, allowing him to hire his own attorneys for an appeal, with the county paying the costs.

But they worried that William J. Popejoy may not understand the workings of county government. "Thank God it wasn't 'Ming the Merciless,' " assessor Larry L. Bales said of Sanford C. Sigoloff, a corporate turnaround specialist long believed to be the front-runner for interim chief executive officer.
