Opponents of an initiative that would have allowed card clubs in the city launched a recall drive this week against Councilmen Joe V. Harris and Sal Sapien, saying they "no longer represent the views of a majority of voters in Stanton." Harris and Sapien were the only two council members not to support a resolution that opposed Measure A, which sought to legalize card clubs in the city. Stanton voters on June 8 rejected Measure A by a 4-1 margin.

Fighting a drive to remove him from office, Mayor Sal Sapien has mailed letters to residents asking them to reject a recall vote. The letters, mailed last week, called arguments against his stand on a controversial new civic center "half-truths and outright lies." The recall drive, supported by Councilmen David John Shawver, Harry M. Dotson and former planning commissioner Rand Hogan, began in March, largely as a result of Sapien's support for the new city hall.

The City Council has approved a reduction of the utility tax to 5% from 6%. The council reviews the levy every year and lowers or raises it depending on the state of the city's treasury. "We are in good financial shape," Councilman Sal Sapien said at this week's meeting. The change in rates goes into effect Sept. 1.

The City Council decided Tuesday to form a Citizens Community Safety Advisory Committee to combat crime. Councilman Sal Sapien, who proposed the committee, said he wants to fill it with some of the 17 people who recently applied for a vacant council seat. "We had a tremendous group of people," said Sapien, recalling the four hours of interviews on Oct. 13 with council applicants. Linda J. Pappas Diaz, a former planning commissioner, was appointed to fill the council seat vacated by Joe V.

Like a would-be actor, Stanton is hoping to be discovered by Hollywood. The City Council passed an ordinance on Tuesday that will make it easier for producers to get permits to make movies in their town. "Maybe we can finally get Elizabeth Taylor to come to Stanton," said Councilman Sal Sapien. In 1993, Taylor, then married to Stanton-raised Larry Fortensky, was invited to the dedication of Stanton's new City Hall. Neither attended the ceremony.

The City Council passed its $14.4-million budget this week. "This is a very good budget," said Councilman Sal Sapien. "We have managed to maintain a really high level of service and give employee pay increases despite the fact the state is taking money away and the fact that we lost a lot of money in the [county] investment pool." Stanton residents should see some major improvements resulting from provisions in the 1995-96 budget, said City Manager Terry Matz.

The City Council at today's meeting will interview applicants for the Planning Commission. The council had put off appointing new commissioners, which would ordinarily be done in January, until a decision was reached about whether to disband the Planning Commission altogether. In the wake of the county's bankruptcy, Councilman Sal Sapien had proposed that the council absorb the duties of the commission as a cost-saving measure. That strategy, however, was rejected at the council's last meeting.

When the new City Council is seated later this month, the majority will consist of first-time council members. Newcomers Don Martinez, Harry M. Dotson and Joe V. Harris edged out challenger Rand W. Hogan and incumbent Mayor Edward L. Allen. Harris called it "a tough campaign." "I done this campaign the old-fashioned way--I earned this," Harris said. "I lost about 20 pounds walking around." Allen said he lost the race in part because he decided to spend less than $1,000 on his campaign.
