The Los Angeles City Council ordered Wednesday a special election on Sept. 11 to fill the council seat of the late John Ferraro, a race that has already attracted eight candidates, including former state Senate President Pro Tem David Roberti. Even before Wednesday's council action, fund-raising papers had been filed with the city by hopefuls such as Roberti, Los Angeles Community College Board member Beth Garfield, and former Ferraro aide Tom LaBonge.

John Ferraro knows the advantage of incumbency. "When you provide services to your constituents, it's a form of campaigning. Campaigning is a four-year proposition," the longtime Los Angeles city councilman said recently. That approach--sticking to daily constituent needs while avoiding conflicts --has kept Ferraro on the council since he was appointed in 1966. And it is the reason he is a heavy favorite to win another term representing the 4th District in Tuesday's vote.

Voters in the Los Angeles City Council's 4th District head to the polls today to elect a successor to the late John Ferraro. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. The 4th District is the only contest on the ballot. With 10 candidates spending more than $1.2 million on a blizzard of campaign mail, many contenders and observers believe it is likely no candidate will get more than the 50% of the vote needed to win the seat outright.
