Former Los Angeles city Treasurer J. Paul Brownridge has failed to qualify as a candidate for city controller in the April 10 election, city election officials said. Brownridge said Friday he will go to court to try to get on the ballot. Unless he prevails in court, the controller's race will, in effect, become a matchup between Councilwoman Laura Chick and businesswoman Laurette Healey, who is backed by Mayor Richard Riordan.

A day after learning that the city's deficit will grow by $21 million because of an accounting error by the treasurer's office, the Los Angeles City Council on Wednesday ordered an audit of the treasurer's bookkeeping procedures. The investigation will focus on the question of how the treasurer grossly overestimated income from the city's $2-billion investment portfolio--predicting $39.4 million in income this fiscal year, when the city will net just $18 million.

City officials said their displeasure over the bad financial news was compounded when they learned that Treasurer J. Paul Brownridge left on a vacation after issuing a memo Friday on the shortfall.

Of all the baloney in city government, this is the thickest slice yet ("Mayor Upset Over Proposed Charter Start Date," Jan. 29)! Two years is too much time for a new city charter to sit and collect dust. Would these commissioners buy a new car and then let it sit in the garage for two years before driving it? No. So why are they telling us--the voters--to vote for a new city charter this year and then wait two more years before it will be implemented? PHILIP KOSS Los Angeles Both the elected and appointed charter reform commissions are in need of a reality check.

At the urging of Mayor Richard Riordan, a Van Nuys businesswoman Thursday announced she will challenge Councilwoman Laura Chick in the race to become city controller. "I have the spirit, energy and experience to take on the job," said Laurette Healey, chief financial officer and owner of Entertainment Marketing Associates. "I'm used to dealing with budgets, profit and loss statements, and efficiencies. I feel highly qualified for the job and clearly the mayor has signaled he shares that opinion."
