Shawn Waddell may be the most wanted candidate on the November ballot--not by voters but by authorities. A Pasadena judge issued an arrest warrant this summer for Waddell, the Green Party candidate in the 44th Assembly District, for failing to show up in court to face a drug charge, prosecutors said. Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies allegedly caught the 23-year-old man high on amphetamines, six months before Waddell received 1,600 votes in the June primary.

First-term Democratic incumbent Jack Scott has a tough fight in trying to hang on to this former Republican stronghold. The GOP, having all but conceded the neighboring 43rd District when its candidate there got into trouble, has shifted its resources to Scott challenger Ken LaCorte, a medical supplies company manager. Democrats recently lost a court bid to have Green Party nominee Shawn Waddell, a registered Democrat, knocked off the ballot.

Valley candidates pay good money to call attention to themselves--but not the kind being dished out recently by an irate hair dresser and a Pasadena judge. For Phyllis Robinson, it's a matter of parking more than partisanship. Robinson is a hairdresser at the Inta-Hair Salon on the 19700 block of Ventura Boulevard in Woodland Hills, next door to the campaign office of Republican Randy Hoffman, the candidate trying to unseat Democratic Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Sherman Oaks). The problem?

In another political era, Assemblywoman Sally Havice, alone on the ballot for the Democratic nomination in the 56th District, could have coasted comfortably through the June primary and saved her resources for the fall. But California's new blanket primary system, which allows voters to pick from among candidates regardless of party affiliation, has turned the first-term legislator's reelection bid into what veteran political consultant Allan Hoffenblum calls an important "dry run" contest.
