What will Ted do? That's the question swirling around Santa Ana after last month's indictment of councilman and mayoral candidate Ted R. Moreno. Before entering a plea of not guilty to public corruption, the combative Moreno was preparing a head-butting campaign against incumbent Miguel A. Pulido Jr. for leadership of the largest city in the county. As a council member, Moreno must leave office in 2000, but the separately elected office of mayor has no term limit.

Hoping to limit campaign mudslinging, the Santa Ana Chamber of Commerce has won pledges from most of the candidates in the upcoming city election not to make scurrilous attacks on their political opponents. "The results of the June primary demonstrated that negative campaigning is destructive," chamber President Michael Metzler said. "Post-recessionary voters are no longer interested in hearing about personal attacks." The request for pledges comes at a time of volatile politics in Santa Ana.

Should Santa Ana be the metropolitan downtown for an increasingly cosmopolitan Orange County? Or is it California's largest Latino city and a showcase for the multicultural experience? The two profiles overlap, but the debate that has developed here reveals a city with an identity crisis. Increasingly, there are two sides arguing the city's future, and concerns exist about a widening gap within the community.

Stress over a federal public corruption indictment two weeks ago as well as his wife's difficult pregnancy is taking its toll on Santa Ana Councilman Ted R. Moreno. At his first council meeting since the indictment was returned, Moreno sat mostly stone-faced through hours of motions, debates and votes. But at the end of the locally televised meeting, he broke down and cried as he talked about taking his wife to the hospital to check for a possible miscarriage.

In another effort to restore the tarnished image of county government, the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday moved ahead with a plan to regulate lobbyists by requiring them to register with the county and disclose the clients they represent. Lobbyists would also be directed to disclose the campaign donations they make to county officials in hopes of shedding more light on how they wield influence behind the scenes.

City Councilman Ted R. Moreno blasted four council colleagues this week, alleging that they are rejecting his city commission nominees for purely political reasons. "It's sad that you can't put politics behind you and approve someone who's good for the community," Moreno said Monday night, shortly before a vote on his Planning Commission nominee, Cynthia A.
