Conservative Republican Alan Heslop and liberal Democrat Leroy Hardy are political opposites. But on one thing they agree: the California Legislature is a mess. Heslop and Hardy have concluded that the state's many ills--from skyrocketing insurance rates to gridlocked roads--are the fault of a Legislature paralyzed by partisan extremists elected from districts carefully drawn to maximize the power of incumbents and other insiders.

The last nine months won't be remembered as Glenn M. Anderson's political salad days. Last December, the 78-year-old Democrat became only the third member of Congress in 15 years to be stripped of a committee chairmanship. This week, he suffered a second indignity: State Democratic leaders proposed carving up his harbor-area political turf to make way for a Republican-leaning congressional district.

Thomas J. Mays, the conservative mayor of Huntington Beach, fended off a strong, well-financed challenge by a moderate from Long Beach to win the Republican nomination in the 58th Assembly District. "One of the things that is perfectly clear is that you can't come in and buy an election," Mays said of his primary victory Tuesday over Long Beach surgeon Seymour Alban in the district stretching from Huntington Beach to Long Beach.

Maureen Reagan, armed with the endorsement of her father, former President Ronald Reagan, said Wednesday she will run for Congress in a Republican-leaning coastal district stretching from San Pedro to Venice. In 1982, her campaign for the U.S. Senate was undermined by reports that then-President Reagan did not want her to run. She finished fifth among the 13 candidates in the GOP primary, receiving only 5% of the vote. Her father made no public endorsement in the race.

The old saw, "Ain't room for the two of us in this town," rings painfully true for South Bay Assemblymen Dave Elder and Richard E. Floyd, now that the state Supreme Court has approved California's new legislative boundaries. The court's reapportionment plan, adopted Monday, joins pieces of each man's political turf in a single Assembly district embracing Carson and parts of Compton, Long Beach and the harbor area of Los Angeles.

From the well-stocked information desk in front to the peanut butter and jelly sandwich fixings in back, it's all business at the Ross Perot petition campaign's Lawndale office. As campaign headquarters for southern Los Angeles County, the office since April has sent volunteers streaming to South Bay homes, malls, art fairs and elsewhere to help collect the 134,781 voter signatures that Perot needs to qualify for California's presidential ballot.

While the president of Cal State Long Beach says a state auditor general's report vindicates the university, the chancellor's office says the audit will have no immediate bearing on budget restrictions placed on President Stephen Horn. The auditor general's report, released this week, found no evidence of illegality at California State University, Long Beach. But it said poor record-keeping made it difficult to determine how some funds were spent.
