Los Angeles County supervisors Tuesday created an agency to place a half-cent sales tax increase on the November ballot to pay for new jails. Supervisor Pete Schabarum accused his colleagues of creating a "sham" agency to get around the requirement of Proposition 13 for two-thirds voter approval for a tax increase. Richard B. Dixon, the county's chief administrative officer, recommended seeking approval of the tax increase.

Los Angeles County Supervisor Pete Schabarum on Thursday took out petitions to run for reelection in June, but an aide to the supervisor said Schabarum is still undecided about seeking another four-year term. "He's leaving his options open," Schabarum spokeswoman Judy Hammond said. "If he decides to run, he wants to be prepared." Schabarum, who has represented much of the San Gabriel Valley since 1972, has until March 9 to gather the 3,595 signatures needed to qualify for a spot on the ballot.

Kenneth P. Hahn apparently won election as Los Angeles County assessor late Tuesday night. And Wednesday morning, he laid claim to his own political name. Many observers attributed Hahn's 51.5% to 48.5% advantage over incumbent John Lynch to the name he shares with County Supervisor Kenneth F. Hahn. But Hahn, the assessor, said he has heard enough of that. "It's my name and I'm happy to share it with the other Kenny Hahn," he said Wednesday, with a laugh. "I've done this on my own."

Los Angeles County and city officials began planning Wednesday for sweeping cuts and a funding crunch in mental health programs, jail facilities, the 911 emergency telephone system and other services after voters rejected a host of state and local tax measures on Election Day.

Consider the best scenario: If voters are generous on Tuesday, the financially strapped Los Angeles County budget could be awash in more than $1 billion in new funds provided by a variety of propositions. Mental health clinics threatened with closure could remain open. Jails would be built and expanded. The county's ailing trauma care system would be shored up.

Calling it a "Solomon-like" solution, lawmakers passed and sent to the governor Friday a measure that would allow Los Angeles County voters to approve local sales tax increases for transit and jails without violating state law. The legislation corrects a conflict on the November ballot where Los Angeles County voters will be asked to endorse two local sales tax increases, each calling for a half-cent tax on each dollar of sales.

Los Angeles County Supervisors on Tuesday authorized a Nov. 6 ballot measure that would raise the sales tax by a half-cent for public transit projects, despite a measure seeking more money for jails. If approved, the two measures would be in conflict because the sales tax would exceed the 7 1/4% cap imposed by the Legislature. The tax is now 6 3/4%, leaving only a half-cent increase available.

With powerful Los Angeles County Supervisors Mike Antonovich and Deane Dana steering contributors her way, Sarah Flores collected $305,539 to emerge as top fund-raiser in the 10-candidate race to succeed Supervisor Pete Schabarum, according to campaign finance reports filed Friday. Schabarum's choice for the job, Superior Court Judge Greg O'Brien, raised $211,736. Next was former congressman Jim Lloyd, who raised $164,919. But that included a $135,000 loan of his own money.
