Simi Valley Councilwoman Sandi Webb's admission last week that she illegally carries a pistol when she leaves the safety of her home city for Los Angeles, and will continue to do so, has drawn disbelief from fellow council members and law enforcement officials. Webb maintained on two Los Angeles talk radio programs that she has a God-given right to protect herself. That drew quick complaints from Simi Valley officials.

Former Simi Valley Councilwoman Sandi Webb has launched a campaign to recall state Insurance Commissioner Chuck Quackenbush, saying his handling of disputed insurance claims has made him unfit for office. "He has misused his office for personal gain," Webb said. "Money has disappeared down so many different holes, and none of it is going to the victims."

Ever since the Rodney G. King verdicts some time ago, our community has waged an uphill battle to convince those who would lilsten that the citizens of Simi Valley are not a bunch of redneck, pistol- packing reactionaries. Indeed, we are in many ways typical-our citizens are diverse, open- minded, law abiding, fair. It is with that in mind that I found the recent comments by Sandi Webb regarding the shooting in L.A. so very harmful to the re-building of our image. Ms. Webb's.

The hoopla is over, the signs are coming down and the votes are in for the contest for Simi Valley City Council. It's never easy to lose an election, particularly when the final result is so close. But that's the risk that everyone takes who enters the political arena. I'd like to publicly thank all the people who worked on my campaign, who volunteered long hours and contributed money toward the effort, and who believed in what I was trying to accomplish. The past eight years on the City Council have been very rewarding for me but also very consuming.

I was very surprised to hear about Jere Robings' firing from his position as executive director of the Ventura County Taxpayers Assn., after all the successes he has had. But I was even more shocked to learn the reason: The taxpayers board didn't like the fact that Jere was aggressive and made waves. Instead, they want someone who will be less confrontational. That's ridiculous. What possible good is a taxpayers organization that doesn't aggressively defend the interests of the taxpayers?

There has been a lot of news lately about compensation levels in Simi Valley city government, particularly with regard to the high levels for our city manager and city attorney. Having been on the City Council for two years now, and having observed them closely, I think they're both doing very good jobs. But I also think it's important for people to understand that the present City Council has almost no power to reduce these salaries and benefits, which were set in concrete back in the 1980s.

A controversial pro-gun councilwoman from Simi Valley has raised hackles in her hometown by making an obscene gesture at Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.). Councilwoman Sandi Webb said she got angry at Feinstein earlier this week during a meeting of California city officials in Washington when the senator asked for their help fighting a repeal of the state's ban on assault weapons. Strictly speaking, Webb raised her fist at the senator with the middle digit extended, then stormed out.

Four years after the image troubles caused by the 1992 Rodney King beating trial here, Simi Valley leaders are worrying whether a new public relations problem is brewing. This time the trouble revolves mainly around the pro-gun zeal of Councilwoman Sandi Webb and a vocal group of Simi Valley gun advocates lobbying for the city to make it easier for residents to arm themselves.

The grant money pledged to restore Bottle Village has been frozen by the federal government, and Councilwoman Sandi Webb on Monday launched a petition drive to ensure that not one penny of the grant ever reaches the junkyard fantasy land. Webb said she has already collected more than 100 signatures on a a petition that suggests, "Better to Bulldoze Bottle Village than waste $436,500 rebuilding it."

Gun advocates packed the City Council chambers here Monday to protest the strict new policy Police Chief Randy Adams has proposed for issuing concealed-handgun permits--and to show support for one of their own: Councilwoman Sandi Webb. The crowd swelled to more than 200, overflowing into an adjoining room as residents alternately attacked the police chief's new rules and stood up for Webb. The councilwoman last week apologized to U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.

I was informed by the Western Job Training Partnership Assn. (of which I am a board member) about some alarming decisions made Feb. 10. The House Appropriations Committee passed a bill that would rescind $200 million from the Job Training Partnership Act program that trains disadvantaged youths in skills they need for entry into the labor market. This program is a "second chance" system for young people and targets those whom the traditional education system has failed to reach. This includes drop-outs, offenders, those with limited educational skills and teen-age parents.

Brandishing the signatures of 3,000 people who believe that carrying a firearm ought to be legal, Simi Valley's defiant City Councilwoman Sandi Webb told state lawmakers Tuesday that--lawful or not--she totes a gun to protect herself and her teen-age daughter. In a deliberate, forceful voice, Webb testified before the Assembly Public Safety Committee in support of a bill to allow more people to legally carry concealed, loaded weapons.

The last time that Sandi Webb went crusading in Sacramento, she took a truckload of turnips and advised state lawmakers, "Try squeezing some blood out of these." Next week, the outspoken Simi Valley councilwoman will head to the state capital to testify before an Assembly committee on her latest crusade: loosening restrictions for carrying concealed weapons.
