With Southern California's economy stuck in neutral, Los Angeles City Councilwoman Joy Picus faces political challengers who say her hostility to business has cost the city in jobs and business flight. If their strategy succeeds, it might bring a major twist to Los Angeles' civic dialogue, where the rhetoric of slow-growth and neighborhood protection has often overshadowed complaints that City Hall taxes, building limits and red tape stifle business initiative.

The five challengers of West Valley Councilwoman Joy Picus gathered Monday to accuse the heavily favored incumbent of "hiding from the public" by agreeing to only one face-to-face appearance with them before the Los Angeles city election on April 9. They also contended that the one planned joint meeting, a March 28 candidates' forum, is biased in Picus' favor because it is sponsored by the League of Women Voters and American Assn. of University Women.

A prominent San Fernando Valley business group has endorsed all Los Angeles City Council members facing opposition in the April 9 election except the West Valley's Joy Picus. The group is backing Jeanne Nemo, one of Picus' five opponents. The endorsement by the conservative San Fernando Valley Business and Professional Assn. is not altogether surprising because Nemo is a member of the group's board. She said she voted for herself, but that her vote wasn't the deciding one.
