It does not matter much if Stanley Hirsch owns property in the downtown project since, under the terms of the Bernardi lawsuit settlement, this is the last year of the project, except for a little housing next year and repayment of bonds. Bobbi Feidler has had many years of experience on the school board and in Congress devoted to insuring the taxpayers get their money's worth from government.

After four hours of debate, the Los Angeles City Council on Friday failed to override Mayor Tom Bradley's veto of a plan to convert the old May Co. building into a huge garment plant--but agreed to let developers reapply for a permit to do so. The council's action drew mixed reactions from developers who are seeking a conditional-use permit for plans to place 7,000 garment workers and 600 businesses in the 1-million-square-foot building at Broadway and 8th Street.

In his last race for mayor of Los Angeles, Tom Bradley forged a winning coalition that involved little in the way of significant electoral help from the San Fernando Valley. The fallout from that was predictable. Although Valley residents accounted for slightly more than one-third of the population of Los Angeles, they made up less than 20% of the membership of Bradley's city commissions during his last term.

Richard Riordan's arrival at City Hall nearly a decade ago won special, if not particularly glowing, notice: The newly appointed Recreation and Parks commissioner had loaned $300,000 to then-Mayor Tom Bradley's failed gubernatorial bid, the largest contribution the campaign received. Big givers have traditionally found their way to coveted spots on City Hall commissions.

Opening the door for the creation of a new garment district in downtown Los Angeles, the City Council on Tuesday approved a proposal to convert the historic May Co. building into an industrial complex for 600 businesses and 7,000 workers. In an acrimonious two-hour debate, the council also imposed conditions on the plan to revamp the 1-million-square-foot building at the corner of Broadway and 8th Street in an area zoned for condominiums, restaurants and retail stores.
