GLENDALE — Democratic Assemblyman Paul Krekorian’s showing in Tuesday’s special election for Los Angeles City Council District 2 will decide more than just a seat on the dais. No matter how the final results come down, experts said Krekorian’s gamble will either pay political dividends or invoke voter ire when his Assembly term ends in 2010. “If I lived outside of [Los Angeles], in Burbank or Glendale, and my representative wanted to be on the L.A. City Council, then I would question whether he cares that much about my interests,” said Martin Saiz, professor and chairman of the political science department at Cal State Northridge.

BURBANK — Campaigning began in the parking lot for many candidates at a California Democratic Party delegate election Sunday. A mix of campaigners used fliers, songs and one-on-one discussions to vie for support from the steady trickle of voters who passed in and out of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees office, where the voting took place. Twelve candidates were elected to represent the 43rd District on the California Democratic Party State Central Committee, with Lee Wochner, the founder of the Burbank Democratic Club, chosen to be the district’s representative on the party’s statewide executive board, which helps to craft the party’s platform.

Muffled discussions about “restoring confidence in the police department” filled a room in the Community Services Building on Wednesday during a public forum. The moderator, Lee Wochner, had a captive audience during introductions of police commissioners and police representatives, but voices rose in volume after the meeting veered from the agenda and moved from introductions to the State of the Police Department by Chief Scott LaChasse. During the much-anticipated public comment period, 13 audience members stepped up to the microphone and relayed a wide range of comments, from harassment complaints, requests for increased cooperation with neighborhood watches, claims of being followed and desires for moving forward after several independent probes into alleged police misconduct.

Democratic Assemblyman Paul Krekorian will make his final campaign push for Los Angeles City Council over the weekend in advance of an election Tuesday that could spur a race to replace him. Krekorian is one of 10 candidates vying to take over for now-L.A. City Controller Wendy Greuel as the city’s representative for Council District 2, which sweeps across the San Fernando Valley from Sherman Oaks to Tujunga. He is considered one of three front-runners, and many observers expect him to be one of the top two vote-getters Tuesday, which would qualify him for a runoff election Dec. 8. Any candidate receiving more than 50% of the vote Tuesday could be elected outright, but most consider that scenario unlikely as each of the so-called big three candidates for the spot have received significant support and endorsements in an increasingly tight race.

Assemblyman Paul Krekorian (D-Los Angeles) is hoping a final campaign push for votes will put him over the top in a runoff election Tuesday for a seat on the Los Angeles City Council, a development that would open the doors for a race to replace him in the Legislature. Two Assembly hopefuls, including one Democrat and one Republican, have already publicly stated their interest in the seat and have begun setting the stage for a special election should Krekorian win Tuesday. But political observers say Krekorian’s odds have become muddled as campaigning has grown increasingly heated in recent weeks.
