California Secretary of State Bill Jones announced Thursday that he has decided to run for reelection next year and will not seek to become the Republican challenger to Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.). Jones' announcement was the first of many expected over the next few months as political figures sort out who will run for what in 1998--a year in which a Senate seat and the governorship will be at stake.

San Diego Mayor Susan Golding has been accused by a grand jury of improperly using her influence to secure a business group's backing for a new stadium for the Padres. The grand jury, which leveled its accusations Wednesday, did not bring criminal charges. Instead, it recommended the district attorney pursue a civil misconduct case. If Golding is found to have committed misconduct, the two-term mayor could be removed from office.

It was late, well after midnight. The moon cast an evanescent glow across the rippling waters of the bay. The tall towers downtown stood like so many stacks of poker chips at Vegas. A smattering of cars hurtled along the sinuous freeways. The city was quiet and the suburbs slept. Susan Golding, however, was still awake, leaning over her desk, rereading the speech she would give tomorrow after being sworn in as the 37th mayor of the city of San Diego. The mayor-elect was tired.

The San Diego County Grand Jury today will increase its criticism of Mayor Susan Golding's involvement in the campaign to build a downtown ballpark by leveling an accusation that--if pursued and found true by a jury--could lead to her ouster, sources said. The jury, acting in its capacity as a government watchdog, will suggest that Golding played a role in using public money to campaign for Proposition C.

In a turbulent political season in which roiling voter disillusionment has fused with a fervent yearning for change, San Diego mayoral candidates Peter Navarro and Susan Golding offer voters choices that capture many of the overarching themes of Campaign '92. Insider against outsider, change versus experience, "Year of the Woman"--dynamics that have dominated politics from the national to the local level this year--all can be found in the Nov.

As delegates, reporters and others arrive for the Republican National Convention, they are greeted at the airport by three welcoming banners and three movie poster-sized pictures of Mayor Susan Golding. Along with giving San Diego the attention it has long craved, the GOP convention affords an opportunity nonpareil for its Republican mayor, whose name is being circulated by insiders as a possible candidate in 1998 either for governor or the Senate seat held by Democrat Barbara Boxer.

I am extremely upset to see that The Times has endorsed Susan Golding for mayor. It's one thing to withhold your endorsement of Peter Navarro, but please do it for a reason. To say that Peter Navarro and Susan Golding are virtually the same is ridiculous. Why, then, did the Sierra Club endorse Peter and not Susan? SARI REZNICK San Diego

Susan Golding keeps bringing up her experience. She has been either on the City Council or Board of Supervisors while we have had the ongoing problems of sewage, protective services, welfare fraud, and now the new jail in Kearny Mesa that can't be opened because of lack of funds. Yes, Peter Navarro is inexperienced in politics, but he has managed to set up one of the smoothest running grass-roots organizations ever seen in San Diego. The more Susan Golding talks about her experience, the more I realize just where her experience has gotten us. Give Navarro the chance to show us what an "inexperienced" mayor can do.

Mayor Susan Golding has been easily reelected to a second four-term by winning 78% of the vote against five largely unknown opponents, final vote totals showed Wednesday. Golding, a Republican, took credit for San Diego's drop in crime and for making the city more "business-friendly." During the campaign, Golding declined to promise to serve the entire term, leading to speculation that she may run for the Senate in 1998 against Democrat incumbent Barbara Boxer.

Mayor Susan Golding and other city officials withheld key information from voters and also used improper influence to get a taxpayers' group to endorse their drive for a downtown ballpark, the San Diego County Grand Jury charged Friday. The grand jury issued the blistering report, its third criticizing portions of the ballpark project, as part of its oversight role for local government. There were no criminal indictments.

Who knows what Brian Bilbray will do come primary day next June. When the Republican congressman from San Diego takes a good hard look at the ballot for the U.S. Senate, he'll see the names of two pals--car alarm mogul Darrell Issa, a longtime Bilbray backer, and San Diego Mayor Susan Golding, with whom he once served on the county Board of Supervisors. That is then. This is now. And for now, Bilbray has dealt with his dilemma in unlikely fashion: He has endorsed them both.

As a metaphor for the strange tenor of the race for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate, it was hard to pass up this one: State Treasurer Matt Fong, opening a news conference before a fund-raiser for his exploratory Senate campaign, marched toward his microphone-laden podium. And then he marched right past it, planting himself off to the side, where no one could pick up his words.

San Diego Mayor Susan Golding tiptoed Monday into the race for U.S. Senate, ending months of hesitation by forming an exploratory committee as a first step toward challenging incumbent Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer. The low-key announcement, made via press release, makes for the third announced or all-but-announced Republican candidate lining up to face Boxer next year.

With Gov. Pete Wilson a lame duck with a diminished political star, a new generation of Republican leaders has emerged in California, led by state Atty. Gen. Dan Lungren and San Diego Mayor Susan Golding. Lungren, 49, came out of this month's Republican National Convention with an enhanced image as a national political comer and the GOP heir apparent to Wilson, who cannot seek reelection because of term limits and who now says he will not run for the U.S. Senate in 1998.
