Restore Playa Vista

February 24, 1991

You failed to mention my position on Playa Vista in the Times article "Galanter Opponents See a Backlash" (Feb. 17).

I believe the entire Playa Vista area should revert to wetland based on the fact that Los Angeles Harbor is required by law to replace the 2,400 acres of wetlands it destroyed. It was city tax money that paid for the harbor and their mitigating funds must remain within the city and restore the Ballona Wetlands to its original ecosystem.

Furthermore, I would like to state that this campaign must be based on the issues and not dwell on the amount of money that the various candidates have raised. This is an insult to the voters of the 6th Council District, as it implies that outside money--from the Berman-Waxman machine, Mayor Bradley, Supervisor Dana, and megadevelopers--can buy their votes. It didn't work for Pat Russell four years ago, and the voters will not vote for outside representation.
