Correction:

In the story, “Democracy For All, working mother runs for National City Council,” by Raymond R. Beltrán published in La Prensa San Diego on September 24, 2004, it was mistakenly noted that candidate Judy de los Santos has a Mexican father. Judy’s father is actually Filipino, and her husband is Mexican.
