The Public Servant vs. the Scions? If Los Angeles City Councilwoman Joan Milke Flores has her way, that's how voters will view the contest for the 36th Congressional District, a newly drawn stretch of GOP-leaning turf extending from San Pedro to Venice.

I read with interest the "Diary of a First-Time Candidate" (Dec. 1) and note two observations by Cindy Miller, regarding which I would like to comment. Permit me first to point out that my participation in the political process began at the age of 8 or 9 when my father was active in campaigns and . . . became a candidate for City Council. Since that time, I have licked envelopes, walked precincts, managed campaigns, served as staff in statewide efforts and participated as a candidate in local school board elections.
