Los Angeles City Council candidates Victor Griego and Nick Pacheco agree on many things they think would improve the 14th District, a diverse community that stretches from the hilly streets of Eagle Rock to the barrios of Boyle Heights. The two Democrats both want to create more after-school programs and jobs to keep young people out of gangs. They both say they will push for new Dash shuttle bus lines and try to revive the stalled Red Line subway to the Eastside.

"Now the work begins." So said Alex Padilla after his landslide victory in last week's runoff election for the 7th District City Council seat, promising words from a strong campaigner who clearly knows what work means. Promise is what the start of a political career is all about. What Padilla won Tuesday is the opportunity to live up to that promise. His first promise, made at his victory party, is to fix a traffic light near the Pacoima elementary school he attended as a child.

After the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor formally endorsed Victor Griego for the Eastside City Council seat Tuesday, officials knew exactly who to call for help to turn their stamp of approval into a real political campaign: Mike Garcia. Garcia, the president of the Service Employees International Union-Local 1877, already has earned a reputation as one of the most aggressive union organizers in the city.

Veteran Los Angeles City Councilman Nate Holden held off a challenge from Madison Shockley to retain his seat Tuesday and will be joined on the council by political newcomers Alex Padilla and Nick Pacheco, who both also won runoff elections. Holden, who has held the 10th District seat since 1987, was opposed by four other council members who had endorsed Shockley, and the incumbent jokingly promised retribution as the returns came in. "I'm going to bury the hatchet," he said.

As The Times noted, the "14th District Bonanza" (editorial, March 31) will be quite a shootout. However, out of the 14 candidates vying to replace Richard Alatorre, I am left wondering why The Times chose to praise Victor Griego. Griego's career as a City Hall lobbyist makes me believe that he is just a hired gun. Moreover, it has been written that he moved into the district just to run for office. MARIO SOLIS MARICH Highland Park Of the four candidates you praised, only one sticks out, Nick Pacheco.

City Council candidate Victor Griego, who this week won the key backing of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, on Friday collected several more endorsements from opponents in last month's primary. Alvin Parra, the primary's third-place finisher, threw his support to Griego after interviewing him and Nick Pacheco, who placed first. The runoff election in June will decide who replaces veteran Eastside council member Richard Alatorre, who is retiring.

City Council candidate Victor Griego, who already has endorsements from several state and local politicians, picked up another one Wednesday, when Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina announced that she will support him. Molina, who met and interviewed many of the candidates in the 14th District, has said the decision was a particularly difficult one because she knew most of the candidates personally and has a high opinion of many of them.

The state Democratic Party has intervened in the 7th and 14th City Council District races, sparking objections Tuesday from critics who said it is inappropriate for the party to get involved in the officially nonpartisan races. The Democratic State Central Committee reported spending $8,100 on an independent mail campaign supporting Eastside 14th District candidate Victor Griego, and $7,000 on mailings for San Fernando Valley 7th District candidate Alex Padilla.

In a strong signal that organized labor will unify behind Eastside City Council candidate Victor Griego, the Service Employees International Union has decided to support him in the June runoff election, officials said Thursday. Labor was splintered in last week's Eastside council primary, with individual unions backing different candidates.

Tuesday will be labor day in Los Angeles. The Los Angeles County Federation of Labor's money and manpower may well decide who will occupy the three City Council seats to be filled in runoff elections this week. Pouring hundreds of thousands of dollars and hundreds of volunteers into two of the council races--on the Eastside and the northeast San Fernando Valley--may lock up victories for organized labor's favored candidates, Alex Padilla in the 7th District and Victor Griego in the 14th.
