As he shifts his attention to the daunting challenge of governing Los Angeles, Mayor-elect Richard Riordan is expected to draw on a broad network of advisers--many of them newcomers to government--who will reshape the political face of City Hall. Advisers said Riordan, the first Republican to win the office in 36 years, will assemble a team that will include more members of his party, more entrepreneurs, more San Fernando Valley residents and fresh faces from minority communities.

In a polite exchange that highlighted their conservative similarities, five Republican candidates for a new congressional seat in northern Los Angeles County said Thursday that they oppose legalized abortion or any increase in state sales taxes to repair Los Angeles riot damage. The candidates for the GOP nomination in the 25th Congressional District also agreed that American-born children of illegal immigrants should not automatically receive U. S. citizenship.

Why has Mayor Bradly opted to foist off on the people of north Los Angeles County a proposal to establish a new prison far from the courts in an area that is basically agricultural? Thirty-five percent of all inmates in the prison system come from the City of Los Angeles, but Bradley doesn't want to take the moral responsibility to house even a portion of those inmates in a downtown Los Angeles location, which would be near the courts and families of the inmates. The inescapable logic of this excellent location apparently has eluded the mayor's ability to grasp the basic fundamentals of the efficient operation of such a prison facility.

SACRAMENTO -- The chairman of the Los Angeles County Republican Party called Tuesday for Sen. Roderick Wright to resign after a jury found the lawmaker guilty of eight felonies involving lying about where he lived. But Republican and Democratic colleagues said it was too early to demand such action by the Inglewood Democrat. “It proves beyond any doubt there is something seriously wrong with the absolute power that Democrats have amassed in Sacramento and the lengths they have gone and will go to collect and keep it,” said Mark Vafiades, chairman of the Republican Party of Los Angeles County.

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office has notified those who raised residency issues about candidates in an election for a Glendale-area state Assembly seat last year that reviews of their complaints have been closed without further action. Supporters of Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Silver Lake) and also of his opponent, Republican businessman Sunder Ramani, filed complaints alleging that the other candidate had violated state elections requirements for district residency and voting.

Republican P. Gregory Conlon has what might be the perfect resume to run for state treasurer--if only he could roll back the clock about two years. A former president of the California Public Utilities Commission, Conlon was one of the architects of the state's energy deregulation scheme, hailed at the time but widely viewed now as a costly train wreck. Before that, he spent 30 years with Arthur Andersen--that's right, the accounting firm at the center of the Enron financial scandal.

Republican National Chairman Lee Atwater told a crowd of GOP faithful Tuesday that, nationwide, Orange County "is the most important county in the most important state" in the 1990 election cycle. Atwater and White House Chief of Staff John Sununu called on local Republicans to back Sen. Pete Wilson's gubernatorial campaign because the next governor will oversee the addition of five to seven California congressional seats when district boundaries are redrawn after the 1990 census.

The first weekend of a truce between the Democratic Party and the Northridge Fashion Center went off without a hitch, with Democrats reporting Monday that they registered 102 prospective voters at the mall. "We did extremely well," said Sol Garber, spokesman for the Democratic Party of San Fernando Valley, which last month filed suit against the shopping center alleging that "burdensome" mall rules made it impossible to register voters for the November election.
