Forty-three candidates--including seven incumbents, a gang truce organizer and a songwriter--announced plans to run for seven Los Angeles City Council seats by Tuesday's filing deadline. The candidates include the incumbent council members for each of the seven seats to be voted upon in the April 11 primary. This will be the last time these incumbents can run because of a term limits measure approved by voters in 1992.

Filing closed Monday for special elections in two local state Senate districts, the first to be held under California's new "top two" primary system. The new system allows voters in the Feb. 15 special primaries to choose among all candidates, who for the first time had the option of stating a preference among political parties recognized by the state or listing themselves as nonpartisan. If no one wins a majority in the special primary, the top two vote-getters, regardless of party, will advance to a special runoff April 19. As of the 5 p.m. deadline, just two candidates had filed in the 17th Senate District, which covers parts of Ventura, Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties.

Juanita Millender-McDonald, a Democrat whose district encompassed Compton, Carson, much of Long Beach and parts of South Los Angeles. The election is expected to attract a large field of candidates seeking to replace Millender-McDonald, 68, who died last week of cancer.

The fledgling recall effort against City Councilman Robert Farrell was thrown into limbo Friday as the city attorney began exploring allegations that the petition is fraught with errors and should be invalidated. Two Farrell colleagues also asked the city attorney to examine whether two so-called recall "proponents," who now say they support Farrell, were erroneously listed on the petitions. At least one of them, Sam Williams, denied to reporters that he had been involved in the recall effort.
