Some are calling it a slam dunk, but Republican Richard Ackerman is taking nothing for granted in his race for the 72nd Assembly District seat Tuesday against Democrat Shirley Hafner. The winner will replace veteran Ross Johnson, now a state senator, and finally bring the state Assembly to full strength after nine months of vacancies in districts around the state. An Ackerman victory would also give the Republican Party its coveted majority in the state's lower house.

Republican Richard Ackerman and Democrat Shirley Hafner were the early leaders in the primary race for the Assembly seat in north Orange County's 72nd District. With two-thirds of the votes counted, Hafner, 56, an administrator at UC Irvine Medical Center, and Ackerman, 52, an attorney and former Fullerton City Council member, were headed for a runoff Sept. 12.

North County may be solid Republican territory, but the Democratic Party won a temporary victory of sorts in this week's primary election for the vacant seat in the 72nd Assembly District. Because none of the candidates in Tuesday's race got more than 50% of the vote, a runoff between a Democrat and a Republican must be held Sept. 12. Thus, the turbulent Assembly will not get a new member--expected by most observers to be a Republican--for nearly two months.

If this is July, it must be time for yet another special election in Orange County. And like Measure R, which was soundly torpedoed by county voters last week, this election comes at a crucial political time, with implications that could reverberate throughout the state.

State Republicans won back control of the Assembly with the election Tuesday of former Fullerton Mayor Richard Ackerman over Democrat Shirley Hafner for north Orange County's 72nd District seat. Ackerman's victory gives the GOP a 41-39 edge in the Assembly and the upper hand it lost in December with the defection of Paul V. Horcher, the maverick Diamond Bar Republican-turned-Independent who was recalled in the spring.

Union employees picketed in front of UCI Medical Center on Wednesday, demanding pay increases and complaining of low morale and high turnover. "I've lived here (in Orange County) all my life. Now I need to live with my sister because I can't afford it," said Shirley Hafner of Fullerton. "I don't even make enough money to rent an apartment." Hafner, a ward clerk who has worked for the hospital for three years, said she makes $9.71 an hour.

With Assembly floor sessions marked by mounting partisan fights, Republicans on Wednesday loudly cheered the swearing in of the 41st GOP member: Richard Ackerman of Fullerton. * The former Fullerton mayor took his seat on the ornate Assembly floor one day after easily winning a special election to fill the North County seat vacated by Ross Johnson, who earlier this year was elected to the state Senate.

As an employee of UCI Medical Center, I have some suggestions that may help to keep the Poison Control Center open. Perhaps David Gardner, the outgoing president of the UC system, could donate part of the retirement benefits he will be receiving. Or the chancellors' wives who get paid 10% of their husbands salary (for essentially doing nothing but entertaining) could donate some of that largess. Or the chancellors who obtain free docking privileges for their yachts in state waterways (while UC employees have to pay for parking their cars at work)
