Although she has moved on to the powerful County Board of Supervisors, Gloria Molina is casting a long shadow over the June 4 special election in which six candidates are vying to succeed her on the Los Angeles City Council. Most of the hopefuls say that they want to carry on the combative style and policies of Molina, believing the mostly impoverished 1st Council District needs another advocate to fight for its fair share of city services and programs.

It was the last forum for six candidates to win favor with voters who on June 4 will select a replacement for the popular Gloria Molina on the Los Angeles City Council. Sharon Mee Yung Lowe drew loud applause when she reiterated a call for elected neighborhood advisory councils to help solve community issues. So did Frank Juarez Foster when he endorsed more affordable housing. Maria Elizabeth Munoz was cheered when she called for the immediate ouster of Police Chief Daryl F. Gates.

I want to applaud the efforts of the Board of Supervisors, the Los Angeles Unified School District, the Department of Social Services, the county Office of Education and all of their staffs in creating half of the targeted 225 after-school child-care programs in the last year. For these major bureaucracies to collaborate and work out the details of the program and have 112 up and running in a year is amazing to me. As a parent with a daughter who will start kindergarten and who needs after-school child care, I have visited several public and private schools that may meet this need for us; however, I have not found an after-school program that offers academic instruction, sports and cultural activities all in one place, and we are willing to pay for it.

Now that Gloria Molina has made history by becoming the first Latino member this century on the powerful County Board of Supervisors, six candidates are trying to make a little history of their own by vying for the seat she vacated on the Los Angeles City Council. Voters in the 1st District will go to the polls June 4 to select someone to serve until 1993, which is the remainder of Molina's unexpired term. If no candidate gets at least 50% of the votes, a runoff election will be held later.

"It's one of the closest races we've had in Los Angeles in years," said Frank Martinez, chief management analyst for the city clerk's election division.

California lost the momentum this year in its drive to keep kids from crime, as a host of promising prevention programs were bumped aside. Already modest for the job at hand, support for an array of common sense efforts to turn children away from lives of crime lies in tatters, a casualty of common themes in Sacramento: money-shifting and partisan politics.
