Less than two weeks before the election, the fund-raising race has tightened in two key Los Angeles City Council contests, according to disclosure statements filed with the city Thursday. In northeast Los Angeles' 14th District, former Assembly Speaker Antonio Villaraigosa raised $241,800 during January and February for his bid to unseat Councilman Nick Pacheco. Pacheco raised far less during the reporting period but maintains an overall edge.

Facing a tough reelection battle in March, Los Angeles City Councilman Nick Pacheco sparred with his challengers, former Assembly Speaker Antonio Villaraigosa and one-time Olympic boxing champion Paul Gonzalez, during a debate in Highland Park on Monday evening. It marked the first time that Villaraigosa and Pacheco have met publicly since one of Pacheco's associates mailed two disparaging fliers about Villaraigosa's character in November.

Los Angeles City Council candidate Nick Pacheco on Friday called on main rival Jose Huizar to order a supporter to stop handing out copies of old and unflattering newspaper articles about him. In a news release, the former city councilman, who is running for the 14th District seat, alleged that a Huizar backer, Alvin Parra, was using his home as a base to send volunteers into neighborhoods with copies of four Los Angeles Times articles.

Hoping to end a long-running battle over a landmark Boyle Heights market-cum-swap meet, the Los Angeles City Council on Friday approved the first step in a compromise plan for El Mercado. The plan is a test of the political skills of Councilman Nick Pacheco, who inherited the solution-defying El Mercado issue when he succeeded retiring Councilman Richard Alatorre last spring. The initial step is a zoning change that the council approved Friday, and which clears the way for a legal parking area.

An Eastside nonprofit organization and a political committee supporting the reelection of City Councilman Nick Pacheco denied allegations Friday that they funneled public money into a campaign supporting the councilman's reelection.
OPINION

After the ugly campaign that just finished, it's hard to believe that the nastiness has already started for the 2003 City Council race ("Candidate Complains of Attacks in Mailers," Nov. 12). As a resident of Eagle Rock, I voted for Nick Pacheco in the last election. However, I am deeply disturbed by the offensive mailers that were sent out against Antonio Villaraigosa. Pacheco's claim that he had nothing to do with the mailers just doesn't seem to ring true. The offensive fliers were sent out by Pacheco's law school buddy and supporter Ricardo Torres.

The election for the District 14 seat on the Los Angeles City Council is still three months away, but on Wednesday one of the candidates took the campaign to City Hall. Nick Pacheco, a former council member as well as a candidate, turned to the council, as any ordinary Angeleno might, by obtaining a public speaker's card at the morning meeting. He spoke for 3 1/2 minutes before Council President Alex Padilla asked him to wrap up his remarks.

If there is any lasting truth about the 25-year controversy surrounding El Mercado de Los Angeles marketplace in Boyle Heights, it is this: No solution is as simple as it appears. Roughly 20 outdoor vendors, who had operated illegally at the Eastside market for years, had been told by Councilman Nick Pacheco that they could return this weekend to the El Mercado parking lot at 1st and Lorena streets. They had agreed to quit selling in the lot last November until a compromise could be reached.

In Nick Pacheco and Alex Padilla, the young newcomers elected to the Los Angeles City Council on Tuesday, the city's next generation of Latino leaders gets men whose defining characteristic is an unbroken, deeply rooted connection to the communities into which they were born. As such, they suggest that the story of the assertive new generation of Latino leaders now emerging ultimately may be titled, "Back to the Future."

When Alex Padilla ran for the Los Angeles City Council seat from the community where he grew up, three of his five opponents had moved into the district just before the election. They included Raul Godinez, who quit as mayor of San Fernando to move into Los Angeles and run for the 7th District seat in the northeast San Fernando Valley.
