Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan ran on a strong pro-business platform in last spring's election. The Times asked a group of executives and small-business owners in the Valley and Ventura County what kind of action they would like to see the new mayor take. Not surprisingly, they gave Riordan an earful about why so many companies are leaving or expanding outside of Southern California, and had suggestions about what the new mayor can do about it. They also have some ideas for Gov.

Harry Dictor joined the Service Corps of Retired Executives in 1988, thinking it would be a useful diversion from his successful real estate development and construction business.

The Los Angeles Area United Way announced Monday that its fund-raising goal for 1987-88 will be $85 million--$5 million less than last year. It is first time in 13 years that the charity has reduced its annual goal from the previous year. Coming on heels of its worst campaign shortfall in more than a decade, the scaled-back goal was necessary, officials acknowledged, because last year's fund raising was hurt by a 1986 loan scandal.
