Three new City Council members were sworn into office on Tuesday. Their arrival will end months of deadlocks that divided a four-member council. Leslie Ann Pontious, a travel agency owner, Jim Potts, a police sergeant, and Charles E. Puckett, a district sales manager, fill seats on the council that were previously occupied by Ursula E. Kennedy, John Kelly and Ronald B. Hoesterey. Hoesterey resigned in November, leaving the two years of his office that will be completed by Potts.

As a resident of neighboring Orange, I thoroughly enjoyed your Sunday editorial "Tustin Springs Backward" (Nov. 26), about the Tustin City Council's unprecedented decision to shift its city elections from November to April, thereby allowing potential challengers only four months to organize their campaigns. It should also be noted that Mayor Richard B. Edgar had previously stated that a special April election would attract "better-informed" voters. By that he presumably means "better informed" by himself or Mayor Pro Tem Ursula E. Kennedy, but not by his opponents, who would be hard-pressed for time to effectively present their own views and who lack the financial resources of developers' contributions that Mayor Edgar so richly enjoys himself.

Councilwoman Ursula E. Kennedy announced Thursday that she does not plan to seek reelection.

The City Council on Monday deadlocked on a measure that would have required permits for all news racks on sidewalks and opaque racks for sexually explicit materials. The council had tentatively approved the measure on Nov. 20 by a 3-0 vote with Councilmen Earl J. Prescott and John Kelly absent. On Monday, Prescott and Kelly said that they favor a ban on news racks on sidewalks. Mayor Richard B. Edgar and Mayor Pro Tem Ursula E. Kennedy supported the ordinance. Ronald B.

A proposed ethics resolution designed to ease frictions on the Tustin City Council has died for lack of support. The 12-point resolution, sponsored by Mayor Ursula E. Kennedy, called for an end to the bickering that has marked council meetings. It also would have urged council members not to publicly disclose information raised in closed sessions.
