Call it a dispute among friends. The race for the Democratic nomination in the 37th Assembly District involves what some local Democrats see as Sacramento big-footing--but what state party leaders consider a dose of reality for the locals. Democratic Assembly leaders say they're prepared to spend $500,000 to $1 million to help Somis teacher Roz McGrath, who barely lost to Assemblyman Tony Strickland (R-Thousand Oaks) in 1998, knock off the incumbent in November.

Re "Assembly Democrats Put Their Money on Late Entry Roz McGrath," Jan. 31. Jon Sharkey, not Roz McGrath, needs to take on Assemblyman Tony Strickland. Though she came close to beating him last time, Strickland has a record now, a very conservative one, that needs forceful counterattack. Sharkey is hungry to eat him up in debates. Port Hueneme City Councilman Sharkey's campaign, supported by local Democrats, centers around innovative programs to improve the quality of life for locals.

When the mean-spirited Newt Gingrich "revolution" was going full blast, Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) and Assemblyman Tony Strickland (R-Moorpark) were fully on board. Now presidential candidate George W. Bush is trying to push his "compassionate conservative" image, and our two guys are trying their best to get on that bandwagon. Bush, Gallegly and Strickland have been, are and will be conservative Republicans regardless of the image they portray to get elected. Ventura County is changing fast, and the candidates who need to be elected are Democrats Michael Case, Roz McGrath, Hannah-Beth Jackson and Dan Gonzalez.

Assembly candidate Roz McGrath charged Friday that Assemblyman Tony Strickland (R-Moorpark) has abused his privileges as a lawmaker by sending 420,000 mailers to voters at taxpayer expense shortly before the Sept. 8 ban on such mailings. "It's a political ploy to get his message across to the voters at taxpayers' expense," said McGrath, the Democratic challenger in the 37th District. "And as a taxpayer, I'm demanding that he pay back that money to the taxpayers."

With just 346 votes separating them, kindergarten teacher Roz McGrath and conservative legislative aide Tony Strickland must wait until at least Monday to learn the outcome of the tightest race in an election that set the record for Ventura County's lowest turnout. The prize is the 37th Assembly District seat, representing Thousand Oaks, Camarillo and Oxnard--but officials must pore over 20,000 uncounted ballots before determining a winner in the fiercely contested race.

The field of local legislative candidates filled out Wednesday on filing deadline, with the surprise decision of Somis teacher Roz McGrath to challenge Assemblyman Tony Strickland (R-Thousand Oaks) for the 37th District seat next fall, setting up a possible replay of one of the state's closest races last year. Talked back into the race recently by Assembly Democrats, McGrath filed a declaration of candidacy late Wednesday after receiving pledges of strong support from party leaders.

It's still dark when Assemblyman Tony Strickland arrives to stand beside a stoplight next to the Ventura Freeway in Oxnard. Commuters cruise slowly past the towering bear of a man, often honking or offering a thumbs up. "There's nothing else you can do at 6:30 in the morning to get exposure," says Strickland, waving to passersby. "If you're asking people for their votes, you get in front of them as many times as you can." Politicos call these early morning sessions "Burma Shaving."
