With the area's economy buoyant, early results of elections across the county Tuesday showed voters giving tax increases the thumbs-up on measures to maintain city and school district services. The mood of generosity even extended to Covina, where anti-tax sentiment reached such a peak that angry voters recalled an entire City Council after it imposed a utility tax in 1992.

In a mixed bag of election day results involving pocketbook issues, voters rejected a utility tax in Artesia, retained a similar levy in Hermosa Beach and, for the first time in Arcadia's history, approved a municipal bond measure. Across Los Angeles County, scores of cities also held elections involving school bonds, city councils, water districts and school and community college boards. Voters in Arcadia, by a 3-1 margin, approved the borrowing of $8 million for a new police station.

A ballot measure to preserve open space was leading by a wide margin in early returns in Agoura Hills, where Mayor Dan Kuperberg and Councilwoman Louise Rishoff were facing a write-in candidate in their bids for reelection. In Palmdale, absentee ballots had Kevin W. Carney and Mike Dispenza leading a field of 13 candidates for two four-year terms on the City Council. Carney, a Los Angeles County sheriff's sergeant, was arrested last week on suspicion of molesting a 14-year-old girl.

By all indications, Rosario Marin should have taken a beating when she recently ran for a second term on the Huntington Park City Council. After all, Marin had been Gov. Pete Wilson's liaison to the Latino community for the last two years. She was the Spanish voice of an administration that was characterized by many Latino leaders as being anti-immigrant for Wilson's support for Propositions 187 and 227.
