Proposed new electoral districts forced some San Fernando Valley politicians to think the unthinkable Tuesday--running against incumbents in their own parties. As longtime allies in Congress and the state Legislature contemplated running against each other in fratricidal contests, other veteran lawmakers calculated their chances of winning higher office and a prominent ex-congresswoman pondered a comeback. If adopted, the districts could drastically rearrange the Valley's political geography.

The state Supreme Court's plan to revise electoral district boundaries, unveiled Monday, would create congressional districts in the Antelope Valley and the southwest San Fernando Valley and possibly force Democratic Reps. Anthony Beilenson and Henry Waxman to run against each other. The plan increases the possibility that a Latino candidate could capture a state Assembly seat representing the East Valley.

State Sen. Ed Davis (R-Santa Clarita) contemplated retirement and spending more time on his golf game. Assemblywoman Paula Boland (R-Granada Hills) thought about selling real estate again. And fellow state lawmakers representing the San Fernando Valley and nearby areas gave renewed consideration Thursday to running for other offices from mayor to Congress in the wake of the state Supreme Court decision upholding voter-approved limits on the number of terms they can serve.

Assembly Speaker Willie Brown (D-San Francisco) said Friday he wasn't being serious when he told reporters in connection with comments on legislative reapportionment that Jewish voters can't be counted on to vote for black candidates.

After parlaying two decades of dogged political toil into one of the U.S. House of Representatives' most coveted positions in 1988, veteran Congressman Glenn M. Anderson of Harbor City was unceremoniously stripped of the prize this month in a rare vote of rejection by his colleagues. Anderson's undoing? As chairman of the House Public Works and Transportation Committee, he failed to wield power with the firm fist of his predecessors, opponents in his own Democratic Party said.

The Santa Clarita City Council is calling on cities throughout Los Angeles County to push for legislation that would empower the cities to force the Board of Supervisors to be more responsive to the county's 8.6 million residents. The council's action comes just weeks after Santa Clarita sued the supervisors to overturn their approval of a 2,555-unit housing tract in the Stevenson Ranch development west of the city.

The granddaughter of state Sen. Cecil N. Green (D-Norwalk) was arrested with two other juveniles after they allegedly threatened to shoot a youth on a bicycle in Norwalk and fired two shotgun blasts at a house in gang-related incidents. Sheriff's deputies declined to identify the three juveniles arrested and booked early Tuesday on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and grand theft auto. No one was reported injured.

The Eastside Assembly race to succeed Charles M. Calderon has turned into a high-stakes turf battle marked by an unusual split among local Latino political leaders. Calderon, fresh from an easy win in a special state Senate election in the San Gabriel Valley, is backing a longtime aide to fill his seat in the Assembly. A victory by the aide, Marta Maestas, probably would boost Calderon's prestige and demonstrate his power within the Latino political community.
