It may come down to a matter of style in the race between Democratic Assemblymen Jack Scott and Scott Wildman, who are vying for Adam Schiff's state Senate seat. Do voters want Scott, a genteel former college president with a soft Texas twang, or do they want Wildman, a hyperkinetic, attention-grabbing former fourth-grade teacher? The winner of the March 7 Democratic primary for the 21st State Senate district will likely face a tough fight against well-funded Republican Paul Zee.

Re "Legislator Calls for Sunshine Canyon Dump Audit," March 29. I am happy to see that a public official is finally inquiring into the overall appropriateness of placing a dump within yards of homeowners' back yards. [Assemblyman] Scott Wildman, who chairs the Joint Legislative Audit Committee, was responsible for revealing the Belmont Learning Center fiasco. I applaud his efforts in this matter and hope that the truth is eventually revealed. If the dump is safe, then [Browning-Ferris Industries]

The Los Angeles Board of Education sought Monday to bypass a state assemblyman's investigation into the Belmont Learning Complex by asking for another probe to be conducted by the state auditor. The board voted unanimously in closed session to ask the Joint Legislative Audit Committee to order the state auditor to open an investigation into the Belmont project, the costliest high school in the nation's history.

The still-undecided contest over a Glendale-Burbank seat in the state Assembly that has been held by Republicans for 62 years grew even tighter Monday, with Republican John Geranios closing to within 168 votes of Democrat Scott Wildman. Wildman, a teachers union representative, had a 544-vote lead after all precincts in the 43rd Assembly District were tallied last week. That margin has tightened with the counting of absentee ballots.

Maybe it was the rain. Or maybe it was the fact that the candidates' forum Monday took place in a hotel nestled in the curve of the congestion-choked 405-101 interchange, where attendees could see traffic crawling through the drizzle from banquet tables by the windows. Whatever the reason, transportation emerged as a common theme at a forum co-sponsored by the Valley Industry and Commerce Assn.

I was amazed at your reason not to endorse Scott Wildman for the 43rd Assembly District. You cited your doubt that he was not prepared for the "rigors" of state government. It was my pleasure to work with Scott on many United Teachers-Los Angeles matters when I was teaching in the [Los Angeles Unified School] District. If any man can face rigors, it is Wildman. As a father of five with three still in college, he knows about rigors. As a former classroom teacher of at-risk fourth-grade pupils, he most certainly knows about rigors.

Citing a lack of action by local authorities, a group of state legislators Tuesday pledged to step in to resolve noise issues that have plagued Van Nuys Airport for more than a decade. The legislators, led by Assembly Speaker Antonio R. Villaraigosa (D-Los Angeles), said they may call for a state audit or propose legislation to address mounting complaints from homeowners who say they are frustrated by an inability to find solutions.
