In a surprise victory in the race to represent the northeast San Fernando Valley, Richard Alarcon became the third Latino on the 15-member L.A. City Council last month. Alarcon, 39, who worked as an aide to former Mayor Tom Bradley, credited his success to grass-roots support and said he hopes "to get the community involved in solving its problems." In filling Ernani Bernardi's seat, Alarcon became the first Latino elected to the Council from the San Fernando Valley.

Boss Tweed. Tammany Hall. Shades of. We almost had our Los Angeles Central Library and our money for building housing for the poor stolen away from us by Mayor Richard Riordan and his CEO buddies. Thanks to our housing and library advocates, ever alert, two of our most precious assets were kept out of the hands of (tobacco giant) Philip Morris ("Plan to Sell Library Rejected a 2nd Time," Sept. 11). Thanks also to City Council members Rita Walters, Mark Ridley-Thomas, Nate Holden and Richard Alarcon, who stood tall and urged the rest of the council to listen to the public.

A deputy to San Fernando Valley Councilman Richard Alarcon has quit only two months after he was reassigned amid allegations that he verbally abused constituents.

Instead, he said, it was because he was offered a more appealing job.

In a surprising change of heart, Corina Alarcon withdrew Monday as a candidate for the Los Angeles City Council 7th District seat vacated when her husband, Richard Alarcon, won election last month to the state Senate. Corina Alarcon cited the demands of her business, family and a newly reinvigorated domestic violence shelter she founded as factors in the decision not to run for the seat, which represents the northeast San Fernando Valley. Observers said her decision threw the race wide open.
