L.A. County Candidate Filings

March 6 was the deadline for candidates seeking congressional, state legislative and county offices to file for the June 2 primary, and The Times on Saturday published a list of those candidates. The deadline was extended to Wednesday in some races in which the incumbent did not file for reelection. Here is a list of those who filed papers in races in which the March 6 deadline was extended, as well as those who were omitted from or listed erroneously in the previous list.

Those filing by the extended deadline:

In several state Assembly races and in the 2nd Supervisorial District race, the filing deadline was extended to March 11 because the incumbents did not file for reelection by the March 6 deadline.

In the 40th Assembly District race, Democratic candidates who entered the race include: Assemblywoman Barbara Friedman; Dan Coen, community relations director and Joel Bernard Kelman, counselor at law. Republican candidates include Horace H. Heidt, businessman, and Jon Robert Lorenzen, business executive.

Three more Democrats entered the 49th Assembly District race: Richard Amador, business attorney; Robert Gomez, attorney, and Richard P. Fajardo, attorney. Republican Sophie C. Wong, member of the Alhambra Board of Education, also entered the race.

Roye Love, county employment administrator, entered the 2nd Supervisorial District race after the deadline was extended.


Republican Nelson (Ric) Start, actor, who was listed as a candidate in the 41st Congressional District race filed but was later disqualified by the registrar.

Omitted or Listed Erroneously:

These candidates were either omitted or listed erroneously in last Saturday's candidate filings list: in the 38th Assembly District race, Democrat James E. Blatt, attorney at law; in the 30th Congressional District, Democrats Mark Calney and Helen Hernandez, a businesswoman/marketing executive; in the 33rd Congressional District race, Democrats Lucy F. Kihm, paralegal, and Frank Fernandez, real estate investor; in the 36th Congressional District race, Republican Parker Richard Herriott, businessman/actor.

The list of communities that make up the 29th Senate District was incorrect. Some of the cities in the district are Sierra Madre, Arcadia, Bradbury, Monrovia, Duarte, Glendora, Covina, San Dimas, La Verne, Claremont, La Mirada, La Habra Heights, West Covina, Walnut and Diamond Bar. Portions of the 61st Assembly District are in San Bernardino County.
