Claudia Peschiutta BURBANK -- What started as a ploy to meet girls landed a 17-year-old Dario Frommer his first state office -- youth governor of the YMCA "Youth and Government" program. "I ran against a guy who was sort of the heir-apparent," he said. "I beat him. That was a big deal." At 36, the Los Feliz resident credits that successful campaign for helping to lead him to his second run for state office as the Democratic candidate for the 43rd Assembly District seat.

Robert Shaffer BURBANK -- In the state Assembly race to replace outgoing state Assemblyman Scott Wildman (D-Burbank), Democratic candidates are out-raising Republicans more than two to one. The top two fund-raisers in 1999 were both Democrats. Dario Frommer, a former aide to Gov. Gray Davis, raised $244,000 to Toluca Lake attorney Paul Krekorian's $149,000. The top GOP fund-raiser, attorney Craig Missakian, has raised $101,000. The Glendale resident has raised only $16,000 in individual contributions.

May 15 was Advocacy Day in Sacramento. I got a chance to go and join the mission. The California Council of the Alzheimer's Assn. put this together as part of the Public Policy Program. Alzheimer's disease is very costly to family members, businesses, and to our government. There is progress being made, but there is still much work to be done. After all, the baby boomers are aging. The chance of getting Alzheimer's increases as one gets older. At age 80, the chance of getting it is about 20%. At age 85, it is 50%. For those of you who never took care of a loved one with the disease, it is horrible.

Molly Shore Debbie Fineberg said she and her family feel safe living in Burbank. Nevertheless, Fineberg and her daughter Christine, 9, were among the roomful of parents and children attending a child-safety workshop at the Burbank Family YMCA that was hosted by Assemblyman Dario Frommer (D-Burbank). "Nowadays," Fineberg said, "you have to be more cautious and kids need to be more streetwise." Recent child abductions, including the kidnapping and murder of Orange County girl Samantha Runnion, were the impetus for Frommer's Wednesday evening workshop, which was done with help from the Burbank Police Department.

It's a relatively good time for newly elected Assemblyman Paul Krekorian to begin his term in the 43rd District, representing most of Glendale and Burbank. The governor isn't being recalled. The massive, $35-billion budget deficit that saddled the state in a crisis only three years ago has been reduced to about $5 billion. And some people even wonder if Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is a Democrat in GOP clothing, ready to listen to traditionally opposing voices. Indeed, from the looks of things, the former Burbank School Board trustee has a chance to smell the roses a bit as he begins his term.

GLENDALE — Assemblyman Dario Frommer made merry with friends and co-workers Wednesday night at the Alex Theatre, celebrating the end of his six years of service in the state legislature. "It's great to see a lot of our friends," Frommer said. "It's really nice to see a lot of people you know and have a lot of fun." Hoover High School's jazz band performed an eclectic mix of music as a crowd socialized in the outside patio. Many familiar faces made appearances to meet Frommer in his final major event as the Assembly Majority Leader.

Josh Kleinbaum With a two-person race for the state's 43rd Assembly district, Libertarian candidate Sandor Woren has one major concern -- what if he actually wins? "I'm worried about that possibility," Woren said. "If I did, I'd have to give up my job down here and move to Sacramento." Woren probably won't have to worry too much. He is running against Dario Frommer (D-Burbank), a popular incumbent seeking his third term in the Assembly. Woren's campaign budget is nonexistent.

Reservists, veterans need more job security Re: Josh Kleinbaum's article regarding Col. Mark MacCarley and his efforts to secure jobs and retain openings for veterans returning from Iraq. I think it's great that there is a committee somewhere looking into violations of laws governing the employment and retention of reservist employees. I think most people fail to understand that when reservists are activated to serve, they are only paid what the current military pay is for their rank.

With all the recent headlines about child abuse, perhaps it is fitting that April has been designated Child Abuse Prevention Month. Each year in America, more than 3 million cases of child abuse and neglect are reported to Child Protective Services. These victims are not strangers. They live in our communities, attend our schools and play in our parks. They come from every economic background, and they are of every race, color and sex. Child abuse is a tragedy that comes in many forms -- physical and emotional pain, neglect, and sexual abuse.

It is unfortunate that one of your readers mischaracterized my position on drug rehabilitation and attacked members of the Burbank community, calling them "irrational" for asking some tough questions about irregularities in the licensing process and application of the Pride and Serenity sober-living facility. Asserting I oppose rehabilitation programs or that I am unsympathetic to the tragic scope and cost of drug addiction in America is simply wrong.
