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.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has scheduled a special election for June 26 to fill the congressional seat left vacant by the death of Rep. 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.

Winning just less than 36% of the ballots in Tuesday's special election for the vacant 26th State Senate District seat, Democratic Assemblyman Curren Price Jr. topped a field of eight candidates. But because he fell short of the majority required to win the office in the open primary, Price must go through a May 19 runoff before he can claim the seat in the heavily Democratic district. Republican Nachum Shifren, who earned slightly less than 12% of the vote Tuesday, and Cindy Varela Henderson of the Peace and Freedom Party, who finished with less than 2%, will appear with Price on the runoff ballot.

The special primary election Dec. 11 for the south Los Angeles County 55th Assembly District seat is a match between Carson City Councilman Mike Gipson and Los Angeles Community College board member Warren Furutani.
