I am writing pertaining to a proposal to allow non-U.S. citizens to vote in Los Angeles school board elections. Your article (March 19) stated that the League of United Latin American Citizens had not taken a position on this pressing issue. This is not correct because LULAC has actively supported and promoted this concept at community meetings and in its newsletters. In particular, the Northeast Los Angeles Council has been active in educating and organizing around this issue and will continue to do so as this will entail a long-term political effort by all involved.

Advocates of a mayor-led drive to overhaul Los Angeles' voluminous City Charter, complaining that a summary of their ballot proposal is biased and inaccurate, Friday asked the City Council to make some changes. But they got a resounding "too bad" in the form of a 14-0 vote to accept as written the work of the city's Ballot Simplification Committee.

Next year's Los Angeles school board elections already are shaping up as competitive and expensive races -- with results that could affect Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's intervention in local school reforms. Eight candidates filed forms Monday signifying their intent to run, including two incumbents. Four of the seven Board of Education seats are up for grabs.

Throwing his weight into the upcoming Los Angeles school board elections, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa declared his support for a heavily favored Latina candidate Wednesday and was poised to give his endorsement in another race. For weeks, the mayor had delayed his endorsements -- avoiding, for the time, political strife with the teachers union and African American leaders.

Their names may not appear on the ballot, but their influence in the Los Angeles school board elections is undeniable. On one side is the Coalition for Kids, a civic organization backed by former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan and billionaire Eli Broad. On the other is the United Teachers of Los Angeles, a union with 47,000 members.

By most political standards, Jose Galvan would make a pretty good candidate for state Assembly representing the northeast San Fernando Valley. A longtime Sylmar resident who works as a librarian, Galvan is secretary of the Valley chapter of the Mexican American Political Assn. and a veteran of voter registration drives among local Latinos. He has run three times for public office in Los Angeles and, though never elected, has acquired wide knowledge of fund raising and campaigning tactics.
