New bumper stickers reading "Jesse Jackson/Dan Boatwright" appeared recently in this heavily black and economically struggling industrial city across the bay from San Francisco. "Can you believe that?" state Senate candidate Sunne McPeak grumbled. "It makes it appear that Jesse Jackson has endorsed Dan Boatwright. He hasn't. And Boatwright hasn't endorsed Jackson.

A Contra Costa County supervisor called on Gov. George Deukmejian on Thursday to get directly involved in placing paroled rapist Lawrence Singleton, charging that the governor had done nothing to help place the parolee.

The proposal came as the board debated how to cope with a projected $1.4-billion shortfall.
