For the two City Council candidates on Tuesday's ballot in the heavily Latino 1st District, the Ramona Gardens episode is the latest twist to a campaign dominated by talk of crime and how best to fight it. Mike Hernandez and Sharon Mee Yung Lowe said the Aug. 3 shooting of a 19-year-old Latino by a sheriff's deputy at the housing project has captured the attention of Latinos the same way that the Rodney G. King incident mobilized public sentiment among blacks.

Cypress Park bail bondsman Mike Hernandez and Chinatown attorney Sharon Mee Yung Lowe will face each other in August in a runoff election for the City Council seat left vacant by Gloria Molina, a contest that will pit a well-financed front-runner against a scrappy underdog. Hernandez, 38, who raised nearly $100,000 and had the endorsement of the popular Molina, led the six-candidate field in Tuesday's balloting with 42% of the votes cast in the mostly inner-city 1st Council District.

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.

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.

Close your eyes and you would swear that the strident words railing against insensitive developers were coming from Gloria Molina. "I don't think (being anti-developer) is going to get in my way," the woman said. "The reality is, developers aren't going to disappear. Developers are going to still want to develop in this community. They may not like dealing with me. They don't have to like me. But they'll have to deal with me and they'll have to deal with the communities that I represent."

Mike Hernandez reminded voters time and again during his campaign for the Los Angeles City Council's lst District seat: "I'm from this community. My wife and I have chosen to live here and raise our two children." And now that Hernandez has been elected to represent his neighbors and all 1st District residents on the Los Angeles City Council, he intends to seek their feedback. "My style is going to be one of asking people how to get things done," Hernandez said. "My style is to find consensus."
