In next week's Los Angeles City election, Mayor Villaraigosa has several opponents, but none with enough resources to make it a race. He refuses to make it a contest by participating in a debate. Without a contest at the top of the ballot, there's not much interest in the election, though there are contests for two other citywide offices. We hear about the race to replace Laura Chick, who is termed out as City Controller. City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo is also termed out, and there's a spirited race to replace him as well.
