Limping slightly from a broken toe, Mayor Richard Riordan hobbled around the Valley on Tuesday seeking support for a $744-million public safety bond measure and his slate of candidates for the city school board. The mayor began his morning at a North Hollywood nail polish factory and ended it watching a group of Pacoima senior citizens do a hip-wiggling line dance known as the "Tush Push." In between, he dropped by an Arleta Fire Station.

Call it the battle of the nice guys. The contest for the Los Angeles Board of Education seat that represents a region running from Watts to San Pedro is viewed as a tossup between two gentlemen. Incumbent George Kiriyama, 67, is known for his love of music, his gentle personality, his accessibility and his penchant for spending most of his time in his office at the Los Angeles Unified School District headquarters.

With the timely purchase of a condominium in Tarzana, Julie Korenstein has positioned herself to reap full advantage from her San Fernando Valley political base in her attempt for a third term on the Los Angeles Board of Education. When new school board boundaries were adopted by the Los Angeles City Council last summer, Korenstein moved to the mid-Valley district in the hope of succeeding longtime representative Roberta Weintraub, who is retiring.
