For the past few months, Sharon Humphrey-Peterson had been an eager, novice Los Angeles City Council candidate, glad-handing voters at nursing homes and all-night drugstores, passing out campaign literature and plotting strategy. But Saturday, she was glumly back at her job as a hairdresser, abruptly knocked out of the 7th Council District race by a screw-up common to first-time contenders: she failed to turn in enough signatures of registered voters to qualify for the April 20 ballot.

Quickening the east San Fernando Valley's political tempo, Richard Alarcon, Mayor Tom Bradley's Valley liaison, and Anne Finn, 77-year-old widow of former Councilman Howard Finn, have declared that they intend to raise money to run for retiring Councilman Ernani Bernardi's seat. The pair join five others who had earlier filed similar declarations for the District 7 seat.

Municipal politics in the San Fernando Valley in 1993 are likely to be far more competitive and volatile than usual. Change is inevitable in the East Valley where Los Angeles City Councilman Ernani Bernardi, 81, will retire from the seat he has held for 31 years. The big question is whether the 70% of the District 7 population who are Latino can elect one of their own to the seat.

With veteran City Councilman Ernani Bernardi running for mayor of Los Angeles, a dozen would-be successors--including a record number of Latinos--filed papers by Monday's deadline to campaign for his east San Fernando Valley seat. In the West Valley, meanwhile, incumbent Council woman Joy Picus will face eight opponents--the most since she first won the office in 1977--including one who has outstripped her in fund raising.

If you don't like the Los Angeles City Council--and polls show that fewer and fewer people do--stick around. Things are about to change. Voters this spring will elect at least two newcomers to the council: Incumbents Ernani Bernardi and Michael Woo, who are running for mayor, are leaving behind open seats. And unusually large fields and stiff competition confront several of the six council members who hope to keep their jobs.
