Councilman Nate Holden in a press release issued Monday said that he fully supports the Los Angeles Police Department’s efforts to combat gang violence and drugs and blames Mayor Tom Bradley for not giving the department “more support and protection.”

Based on information supplied by Councilman Zev Yaroslavsky’s campaign, The Times erroneously reported that the Coalition For Clean Air had endorsed Yaroslavsky. The endorsement is from coalition Vice President Mark Abramowitz and not from the coalition itself.

Based on information supplied by Councilman Zev Yaroslavsky’s reelection campaign, The Times erroneously reported Friday that the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy had endorsed Yaroslavsky. The conservancy, as a state agency, is prohibited from making political endorsements and did not do so.

Bradley has opened his Watts district campaign office at 11323 S. Central Ave.


Councilwoman Joy Picus has received some powerful endorsements. Democratic Reps. Henry Waxman and Howard Berman of Los Angeles, who head the influential Berman-Waxman Democratic political organization, backed her. So did council colleagues Richard Alatorre, Ernani Bernardi, Joan Milke Flores, Gloria Molina, Joel Wachs, Michael Woo and Zev Yaroslavsky. Finally, she was endorsed by two important city employee unions, Los Angeles Police Protective League and the United Paramedics of Los Angeles.

Jeanne Nemo, who is a candidate against Picus, hopes to get some needed campaign financing help from a $75-per-person fund-raiser at a supporter’s home tonight. County Supervisor Mike Antonovich, who is supporting Nemo, will attend.

Yaroslavsky, running for another term in the 5th District, has been endorsed by colleague Marvin Braude and conservation groups, including the Sierra Club, the Coalition for Clean Air, Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy and the American Oceans Campaign. His political allies in the group that has fought Pacific Palisades oil drilling, No Oil Inc., also endorsed him, as did gay and lesbian community leaders, including the Municipal Elections Committee of Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley Democratic Party.


Woo, councilman in the 13th District, has the backing of the Sierra Club and the Los Angeles League of Conservation Voters.


Candidate Ray Bishop has offered to conduct an independent audit of the Los Angeles Housing Authority at his own expense.
