Joining the ranks of mayoral hopefuls with plans to enlarge the Police Department, Los Angeles City Councilman Michael Woo said Monday that he would add 1,000 officers to the force by cutting other city services and increasing property taxes. The proposed tax increase would require approval from two-thirds of the city's voters, similar to a ballot measure that was narrowly defeated two weeks ago.

With veteran City Councilman Ernani Bernardi running for mayor of Los Angeles, a dozen would-be successors--including a record number of Latinos--filed papers by Monday's deadline to campaign for his east San Fernando Valley seat. In the West Valley, meanwhile, incumbent Council woman Joy Picus will face eight opponents--the most since she first won the office in 1977--including one who has outstripped her in fund raising.

Saying Los Angeles is broken and Mayor Tom Bradley "is not the person to fix it," City Councilman Joel Wachs declared Wednesday he intends to raise funds for a possible run for mayor next spring. Raising what may become an important campaign issue, Wachs blamed Bradley for the extent of the riots that followed the Rodney G. King verdict. He said Bradley's feud with former Police Chief Daryl F.

Los Angeles City Councilman Joel Wachs on Wednesday filed papers to raise funds for a possible mayoral campaign, declaring, "The city is broken, and it is painfully clear that after 20 years as mayor, Tom Bradley is not the person to fix it." The six-term San Fernando Valley councilman said he will make a final decision on his candidacy in a month or two.

Aside from taking a massive pay cut, or no pay at all, what can Assemblyman Richard Katz do to keep his involvement in the state budget deadlock from hurting his mayoral campaign? The salary reduction was suggested to me Tuesday morning by my friend Erwin Baker, who is irate over the 58-day Capitol fiasco. He thinks Gov. Pete Wilson and the legislators should give back their paychecks to show sympathy for all those who have been hurt by the state's insolvency.

On Friday, three days before Los Angeles City Councilman Michael Woo announced for mayor, a small afternoon drama provided a revealing look at the intensity and complexity of next year's mayoral campaign. Appropriately enough, it occurred at a television studio, the kind of place that seems to produce all the political news these days. What a comedown for us print journalists.

The City Council directed the city attorney Friday to prepare a charter amendment for the April 20 ballot that would allow the temporary rehiring of retired police officers. Aimed at giving the Police Department more flexibility in filling openings, the measure would allow retired officers to be recalled, without a loss of pension, for up to a year. The law allows the rehiring of retirees for a maximum of 90 days.

Emerging as the unlikely Latino standard-bearer in the 1993 Los Angeles mayoral race is Julian Nava, the 65-year-old educator and ex-ambassador to Mexico who has been out of the political spotlight for more than a decade. The scholarly Nava, who broke ground in 1967 by becoming the city's first Latino school board member, bears little resemblance to the Latino Candidate many imagined would arise in 1993.

Los Angeles City Councilman Joel Wachs on Wednesday became the latest in a growing list of mayoral candidates to officially report having raised more than $200,000, with much of his financial support coming from the entertainment and arts worlds as well as from gay rights and AIDS activists. The 53-year-old Wachs, an avowed candidate since Oct. 4, is the fifth mayoral hopeful to hit the $200,000 reporting threshold.
