The San Fernando Chamber of Commerce held a forum Wednesday introducing the City Council candidates for the upcoming April 12 election. The purpose of the forum, held at the Odyssey Restaurant in Granada Hills, was to allow each candidate to outline a platform for San Fernando's business leaders. Five of the eight candidates for the three at-large seats were present: incumbents Doude Wysbeek and Jose Hernandez and newcomers Raul Godinez, John Becker and Joanne Baltierrez.

The five candidates for San Fernando City Council share a common vision: They want an economically strong community anchored by a quaint, upscale retail center, more single-family homes and less crime. Despite some big-city problems such as gangs and graffiti, the candidates describe San Fernando as a middle-class enclave among the grittier neighborhoods of the northeast San Fernando Valley. They hope to use that image to lure new businesses, generating new jobs and merchant profits.

Proposed carpool lanes for the Golden State Freeway in the San Fernando Valley are back on track after the California Transportation Commission agreed Thursday to allocate $50 million toward the project. In April, the state commission denied a $193-million request by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to help complete carpool lanes in both directions on the Golden State Freeway between the Hollywood Freeway and California 134. The move could have delayed the project four or five years.

Acontroversial proposal to earmark part of Los Angeles County's special sales tax revenues for light rail specifically for San Fernando Valley projects passed its first legislative hurdle Tuesday. The bill, by state Sen. Alan Robbins (D-Tarzana) was sent to the state Senate Appropriations Committee on a 7-3 vote of the state Senate Transportation Committee. It is almost identical to a bill Robbins introduced last year that was passed by the Legislature but vetoed by Gov. George Deukmejian.

A massive reorganization of the Los Angeles transit agency aimed at improving bus service was proposed Monday by its top official. Chief Executive Roger Snoble suggested breaking the Metropolitan Transportation Authority into four "sectors," with their own headquarters, general managers and budgets. Each would be responsible for bus service in its area. Currently, that work is done from the MTA's high-rise headquarters in downtown Los Angeles.
