Spurred by the frustrations of residents in Van Nuys, who are represented by five different Los Angeles City Council members, Assemblyman Bob Hertzberg (D-Sherman Oaks) will introduce legislation today to keep communities within single political districts as much as possible. Hertzberg said redistricting after the 2000 census should conform as much as possible to existing neighborhoods. He sponsored similar legislation last year that was vetoed by Gov. Pete Wilson.

The final vote on a controversial school redistricting plan--set for today amid an 11th-hour lobbying flurry by San Fernando Valley groups--is likely to be a cliffhanger because of the absence of a key player, Los Angeles City Council President John Ferraro. Ferraro had open heart surgery Monday and is expected to be hospitalized for two weeks.

San Fernando Valley-based legislators at Los Angeles City Hall are gearing up for a feisty--but apparently uphill--battle against a redistricting proposal for the city school board that critics say hurts Valley interests. "I can't vote for this plan," Councilwoman Joy Picus said of the proposal to be presented to the full council for adoption Friday. "This plan disadvantages the Valley."

The San Fernando Valley has long been one of the more inviting elements of the Los Angeles dream. It was a song, "The San Fernando Valley," first recorded by Bing Crosby in 1942, that spread the vision: "I'm packing my grip, I'm leaving today, I'm gonna settle down and nevermore roam and make the San Fernando Valley my home." After hearing those words float through their dusty training camps, troop ships and mess halls, a lot of World War II GIs took the advice.

Los Angeles City Councilman Hal Bernson was in Europe on Monday when critics said he should have been at City Hall fighting a plan they argue will hurt his San Fernando Valley constituents. "He should be here protecting the Valley," complained Porter Ranch resident Diana Dixon-Davis, a leader of a group of Valley residents opposed to a city school board redistricting plan endorsed Monday by the council's Ad Hoc Committee on Redistricting.

San Fernando Valley critics of a school board redistricting proposal got a double-barreled boost for their cause Friday: more time to rally their forces, and access to the tools needed to compose their own alternative plans.

Last November, fueled by anger over what they viewed as contempt for San Fernando Valley interests, a group of residents launched an initiative campaign to overturn newly apportioned election districts for the Los Angeles Board of Education. An alternate map was drawn that would have preserved two all-Valley seats on the seven-member board. Hundreds of petitions were printed. A phone line was set up. Volunteers gathered thousands of signatures to try to qualify the measure for a citywide ballot.

A handful of Democratic Assembly members from other parts of California will probably determine the outcome of sweeping legislation to split up the Los Angeles Unified School District into at least seven smaller districts. With the Assembly Education Committee poised to consider the controversial measure on Wednesday, these legislators--all members of the panel--are being courted by the bill's author, Sen. David A. Roberti (D-Van Nuys), and opponents of the breakup scheme.

Holding political office is like holding down any other job in one respect. You apply for the work and if you're hired, you do what the boss says. It's that simple if you want to be a good employee and keep on drawing a paycheck. Senate President Pro Tem David A. Roberti (D-Van Nuys) has always tried to be a good employee for the voters who hired him to represent their interests.

With Mayor Tom Bradley six months from retirement, the Los Angeles City Council moved ahead Friday with a proposal that could remove his successor from one of the city's most definitive political events--redistricting. The council took the first step toward placing two measures on the April ballot that would prevent future mayors from vetoing redistricting plans--the maps that the council draws once a decade to mark council and school board boundaries.
