A Studio City resident Sunday declared his candidacy for the Democratic nomination to run for Assemblyman Gray Davis' seat amid reports that a flock of Westside candidates will join the race. Another Valley resident said he was still exploring the possibility of running. Both men speculated that the anticipated glut of Westside candidates could work to their advantage if those candidates compete for the same votes.

As home to many of Los Angeles' most affluent neighborhoods and vibrant cultural institutions, the 5th Council District has lived up to its reputation for political activism by producing the largest field of candidates running for any council seat in the April 10 election.

Steve Saltzman, one of Los Angeles City Councilman Zev Yaroslavsky's strongest challengers for the 5th District council seat, dropped out of the race Wednesday, leaving the councilman with four opponents leading up to the April 11 election. The strongest remaining challenger now appears to be Laura Lake, a slow-growth candidate who is receiving support from some of the people who helped Ruth Galanter defeat 18-year veteran council member Pat Russell two years ago.

When Zev Yaroslavsky backed out of one political fight, he ran into another. Deciding against a race for mayor of Los Angeles because he thought he would lose, he announced that he will seek reelection as a councilman in the traditionally friendly 5th District, which covers much of the Westside. But Friday, as he was bowing out of the mayoral election, it was clear that he will have opposition in the council race.

Los Angeles City Councilwoman Ruth Galanter has bucked council tradition by reaffirming her support for Laura M. Lake over Councilman Zev Yaroslavsky in the 5th District race. "I owe Laura personally and politically a great debt," Galanter said. Lake played a key role in Galanter's successful campaign against Councilwoman Pat Russell two years ago and took Galanter's mother into her home after Galanter was stabbed by an intruder at her home during the 1987 campaign.

Los Angeles City Councilman Zev Yaroslavsky's not so hidden ambitions to vacate his job so he can become Los Angeles mayor in 1989 has given rise to a likely-to-grow list of possible successors. First out of the blocks is community activist and slow-growth advocate Laura Lake, who helped another slow-growth partisan, Ruth Galanter, defeat Yaroslavsky ally Pat Russell for reelection earlier this year.

Los Angeles City Councilwoman Ruth Galanter on Wednesday bucked council tradition by reaffirming her support for Laura Lake over fellow Councilman Zev Yaroslavsky in the 5th District race. "I owe Laura personally and politically a great debt," Galanter said. Lake not only played a key role in Galanter's successful campaign against Councilwoman Pat Russell two years ago but took Galanter's mother into her home after Galanter was stabbed by an intruder at her home during the 1987 campaign.

Citing overwhelming Westside voter disapproval of a coastal oil drilling project 2 weeks ago, a former mayoral aide said Tuesday that he wants to continue fighting Occidental Petroleum Corp. by running for the 5th District Los Angeles City Council seat now held by Zev Yaroslavsky. Steve Saltzman, 39, said he supports many of the same environmental and slow-growth issues that in recent years have been pushed by Yaroslavsky and are of increasing concern on the Westside.
