Councilman Dan Griset, running for reelection to his Ward 5 seat, is sending out about 27,000 flyers inviting residents to "Meet the Real Rick Norton"--Griset's chief opponent in the race.

A state appellate court has upheld a $10,000 fine levied against Santa Ana Councilman Daniel E. Griset for five improper campaign mailings sent during his successful 1988 reelection bid.
