Experience counts. On Tuesday, voters in the 41st Assembly District will decide who will represent them in Sacramento. Fran Pavley is the hands-down choice. Her 15 years serving on the Agoura Hills City Council and countless regional and state partnerships make her ready to "hit the ground running" legislatively. She has a proven record of protecting the environment, including as a member of the California Coastal Commission, and of opposing urban sprawl and the traffic nightmares of development like the massive Ahmanson Ranch.

News that the election was undecided surprised Rishoff and challenger Paul G. Mueller, both of whom went to bed Tuesday night thinking the campaign was over. "I assumed that when they gave a final count, they meant a final count," Rishoff said Wednesday.

A citizens' group in Agoura Hills launched a recall drive Thursday against four of the city's five council members. The group, United Neighbors of Agoura Hills, said that council members Louise Rishoff, Fran Pavley, Vicky Leary and Mayor Pro Tem Darlene McBane have catered to the influential Old Agoura neighborhood at the expense of the business community, especially in handling a recent controversy over Medfield Street. Los Angeles County closed the street Aug.

Agoura Hills officials plan to amend the city's sign ordinance to allow businesses to place wall signs on dormers and other high places on their buildings. The amendment would clarify the existing code, which is vague on the subject, said Acting Community Development Director Mike Kamino.

Agoura Hills city officials have abandoned their efforts to adopt a tax on cellular telephone users, saying it has been difficult to determine who they are. "It was becoming very complex to try to figure out which phones were actually Agoura Hills-based," said Mayor Louise Rishoff. "A cellular phone has no wire and is not fixed to any address. Where does a phone live, in an office? Some phones live in people's briefcases."
