An aerospace employee, a shopping mall administrator and a co-owner of a label company are running for the $750-a-month part-time post of city clerk. One is a political newcomer, and the others have run unsuccessfully for the City Council. The clerk's term is four years. All of the candidates talk of the importance of maintaining the integrity of City Hall records and of providing information to the public--the clerk's primary job.

Call it the case of the missing absentee ballots. Or were they really missing? Lois Hill Hale, who lost her seat on the Inglewood School board to Gloria Gray earlier this month by 446 votes, believes 886 absentee ballots are missing from the City Clerk's office. Hale, who expresses great confidence that the vast majority of them were from her own supporters, has asked the secretary of state to investigate whether the ballots were fraudulently thrown out.

The filing deadline for this fall's city council, school board and special district elections came and went Wednesday, leaving some South Bay governing boards with well-stocked races and others with no contests at all. Hermosa Beach, for example, has 13 candidates in the Nov. 2 elections, with only one incumbent among them--Mayor Albert Wiemans--vying for three City Council seats. In other cases, however, incumbents are running unopposed.

Edward Vincent, mayor of Inglewood, is usually all over town. He's shaking hands at banquets and lunches. Rubbing shoulders at sign raisings or store openings. Schmoozing people at early morning business meetings. Hamming it up at evening networking sessions. In fact, it can be difficult to get away from Vincent--unless you're running against him for office. At the mayoral debate last week at the Mayflower Ballroom, Vincent was absent.

Historically, the city's mayor has been selected by City Council members from among themselves for a one-year term. But last year, all five wanted to be mayor. To avoid future disputes, voters will be asked in the April 8 municipal election whether the people should elect the mayor directly, and if so, for a two-year or a four-year term.

If 3 plus 2 rarely equals 5 now, will 5 minus 2 equal 3 next week? Translated into election politics: If council members Jim Walker, Russ Lesser and Bob Holmes almost never agree with council members Gil Archuletta and Jan Dennis on major issues, will the retirement of both Walker and Lesser from city politics next week mean Archuletta and Dennis will get a third ally on the council?

Once again, Rep. Jane Harman (D-Rolling Hills) had tapped one of her Washington friends for a visit to her district. This time it was CIA Director James Woolsey. As the congresswoman introduced Woolsey at a recent gathering, she quipped: "Some of you think I know everybody. I don't know everybody. I just know everybody good." On paper, Harman would seem to have potent weapons in her race for a second term--and connections with Washington powerbrokers is just one.

Republican David Barrett Cohen has hammered state Sen. Ralph C. Dills (D-El Segundo) on his long tenure in office and on taking contributions from special interests. But it was a recent Cohen mailer that especially irked the 84-year-old Dills. It featured Cohen holding a saxophone--long a Dills trademark--and included the slogan "Time to Change the Tune." "He's holding that thing the wrong way," Dills, once a professional sax player, said in his raspy Southwestern drawl.

If not for midsummer fireworks, this city would not be having an election. With no opposition, Lomita's three candidates for City Council are virtually guaranteed election on April 8. Indeed, Lomita would have skipped this year's contest altogether, and the unopposed council candidates would have been automatically elected--if not for city ballot measures on the sale of fireworks.
