The four candidates in the City Council election March 6 are divided into two camps--one favoring a bustling downtown with nationally known retailers and the other preferring to keep the small-town feel of the city's commercial area. Two incumbents and two political newcomers are running for two open seats on the five-member council and, as in years past, the big issue is economic development of this predominantly Latino city of 25,000 in the northeast San Fernando Valley.

Jose Hernandez, a Chicano studies professor at Cal State Northridge, has been chosen by the City Council as the new mayor.

Rather than approve cost-of-living salary increases for themselves, San Fernando City Council members decided in a 3-2 vote to let voters decide. In a meeting two weeks ago, Councilman Raul Godinez suggested that council members receive raises on the condition that the money be diverted to recreation programs. The council gave its tentative approval to that idea. But Tuesday, Councilwoman Joanne Baltierez came out strongly against the proposal.

Although a slow-growth initiative was defeated in Santa Clarita in Tuesday's election, voters brought a theme of managed growth to the polls in other northern Los Angeles County communities. Palmdale, one of the nation's fastest-growing cities in the 1980s, will focus more on promoting a quality community rather than rushing to increase its size in coming years, the leader of the city's newly elected council majority predicted Wednesday.

A mailer sent by the San Fernando Police Officers Assn. endorsing two City Council candidates may have violated campaign finance laws, said Councilman Raul Godinez II, who has asked the state Fair Political Practices Commission to investigate the matter. A spokesman for the police organization denied the charge before referring calls to the association's lawyer, who was not available for comment. Godinez "is basically out of line," said Sgt. Bob Ordelheide of the San Fernando Police Department.

Three seats are up for grabs in the March 2 City Council election and, not surprisingly, the big issue among the five candidates is economic development. This year, as in most recent elections, community redevelopment and luring major retailers are the main issues in this mostly Latino working-class, 2.5-square-mile municipality. In 1997, for instance, Councilman Silverio Robledo campaigned with talk of a shoppers' paradise with thriving bookstores, coffee shops and restaurants.
