Vahedi and Ritter Simon lead pack in the Fifth



Suddenly, there are two weeks to go before the city election. In the Fifth district, which is the only real Council race, we hear that the smart money is on a Vahedi/Ritter-Simon runoff.

The Westside Community News Project has featured both candidates.

David Vahedi, who has been pounding a lot of pavement in lower Westwood, is a slow-growth candidate, which would put him at odds in Council but would be a breath of fresh air in it.

Robyn Ritter Simon, a former journalist, is running as a law and order candidate.

Both candidates are willing to discuss what realtors don't like to say: that the quality of life on the Westside has diminished in the past four years.
