One letter from a homeowner made Dovell sit up and take notice. "I'm a success because of that letter from the customer," Dovell said. He began almost immediately to improve customer relations and meet business and residential needs. Opening postal branches and self-service postal centers became a major part of Dovell's improvement program. Post offices were opened in Anaheim Hills and by Anaheim Stadium. A carrier annex serving 80 employees was opened in October 1987. More than 40 self-service postal units were placed throughout the city. Revenue from the units has increased from $198,000 in 1980 to more than $2 million so far this year. The self-service postal unit at Disneyland serves between 13 and 14 million guests a year, generating more than $250,000 annually.

Executives who work for Disney Development Co. also have contributed to both candidates. Disney has been negotiating with city officials about a planned Disneyland expansion. Developers sometimes negotiate with city officials when -planning new subdivisions, commercial and residential. Neither candidate could be reached for comment about their contributions. Candidates are required by California law to file documents with the City Clerk that outline where their campaign money comes from and how it is spent. Daly's year-to-date contribution receipts total 552,898.98. At least $6,775 has come from persons or companies involved in development. Hunter's campaign has received 537,909, including a loan for $4,085. At least $5,775 has come from developers. A large portion of Daly's contributions have come from persons and companies involved in the construction business. Hunter said that constitutes a conflict of interest on the part of Daly, who is employed as a lobbyist for the Building Industry Association of Southern California. "With his BIA paycheck on the line, how can Mr. Daly objectively vote on any project as a councilman?" Hunter says in a prepared statement. The BIA political action committee donated $200 to Daly's campaign. Representatives of Disney have given about $1,675 to Hunter, including $375 in contributions from Disney Development Co. vice presidents Kenneth Wong, Kerry Hunnewell and Please see STATEMENTS/2 ;
