The San Dimas City Council elected a new mayor Tuesday, ending weeks of uncertainty after ex-Mayor Terry Dipple's sudden and unexpected resignation. Curt Morris, a 15-year veteran councilman, will serve the remaining 14 months of Dipple's term, but he said "it is still up in the air" whether he will seek election when the term expires in March 1997.

"We have elections every two years and what is the hot issue is random chance," said Robert C. Harbicht, a City Council candidate. "That's politics, but it is unfortunate because you shouldn't elect councilmen on the basis of one issue that will be forgotten in four years." But that is exactly what appears to be happening in Arcadia, where 10 candidates, including one incumbent, are vying for three council seats in the April 8 municipal election.

Rep. Matthew G. (Marty) Martinez (D-Monterey Park) scored a surprisingly easy victory over his Republican challenger Tuesday as voters reelected all of the area's incumbent congressmen and state legislators. Martinez gained more than 60% of the vote in the 30th Congressional District even though he had just come through a bruising primary and was outspent, $300,000 to $100,000 by his Republican opponent, Ralph R. Ramirez.

The lone challenger for the City Council has chastised three incumbents seeking reelection because they opposed a referendum, later approved by the voters, that prevented construction of 18 condominiums. When they opposed the 1985 referendum, the incumbents showed that they were "out of touch with the people," charged James Mike Slemmon, who is seeking one of three council seats in Tuesday's municipal election.

In an outpouring of voting fervor that exceeded the usual quadrennial march to the polls, thousands of San Gabriel Valley voters got involved on Election Day. They electioneered, they partied, they compared notes and, according to some polling inspectors, they voted--in greater than usual numbers. There was widespread Clinton-mania in the region, a dab or two of Perot-noia and some sorrowful breast-beating by Bush supporters.

Voters in 13 San Gabriel Valley cities on Tuesday will not discharge their civic duties unless they vote twice. In a procedure that officials concede will perplex voters, the county will have elections for the 26th and 31st state Senate districts while municipal elections are held at some of the same polling places. Voters will cast a city ballot, and then receive a Senate ballot to mark.

After a bitterly contested campaign, voters Tuesday repealed Pasadena's 3-year-old Growth Management Initiative, which had placed tight annual caps on new housing and commercial development. The repeal referendum, or Proposition O, passed with 53% of the vote. The vote was the culmination of a complicated yearlong process, involving a lawsuit, an out-of-court settlement, public discussions about planning in Pasadena and the revision of the city's General Plan.

Shortly after 10 a.m. Tuesday, the break bell rang and students poured into the courtyard at Pasadena High School. One of them, Nelson Diaz, 18, planned to visit a polling booth for the first time in his life later in the day. "I'm going to go with my mom; tell her who to vote for," the senior student said. The Diaz family has a pressing reason to support a candidate who will help turn the economy around.

Don Dagne, the school's activity director who organized the event, said students have spent the past month learning about the electoral process, building voting booths in woodworking classes and drawing up posters and ballots.

With the broadest and most politically diverse field of candidates ever to run for three regional water district boards, voters soundly rejected incumbency Tuesday, while also apparently responding to an aggressive campaign by water companies. Five of the eight incumbents decisively lost their bid for reelection. Two others retained their posts by slim margins.

Voters in three San Gabriel Valley cities will elect council members Tuesday, while ballot measures on fireworks and public housing will be decided in two cities. Voters in Walnut will decide whether to ban fireworks sales in the city. In Rosemead the City Council is asking voters to approve the use of redevelopment funds to build low-income housing. The liveliest council race has emerged in the valley's newest city, Diamond Bar, which was incorporated in 1989.
