When Ray Remy left his job at City Hall as deputy mayor of Los Angeles in mid-1984, he headed into troubled waters at the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce. He was to be the group's third president in the 14 months. Remy's appointment fueled speculation that the chamber's revolving executive door meant it was backing away from a major reorganization designed to restore some of its historical clout in government and business matters.

I wholeheartedly agree with The Times' thoughtful editorial in support of Proposition C on the Nov. 6 ballot ("Rail Way: Transit Without Tears," Oct. 16). The Los Angeles economy depends on having a work force which can commute to and from work quickly and efficiently. Proposition C will help reduce congestion, quickly expand light rail and fund the replacement of old buses with cost-efficient and clean-fuel buses to help clean up our air. And now, through the historic agreement just announced to purchase 180 miles of valuable, existing track, commuter rail systems can also be brought on-line even more quickly and less expensively.

The editorial on Prop. 111 was right on target and should be required reading for every California voter before the June 5 election. The Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce believes passage of Prop. 111 is absolutely essential to California's continued economic health and vitality--and for our quality of life. This measure will finance desperately needed transportation and infrastructure improvements. Equally important, Prop. 111 will modify the state's spending limit formula and the budget process.

When Ray Remy was Los Angeles deputy mayor, he liked to smother controversy by using a bureaucratic device called "reaching a consensus." He'd announce that the Administration had made a unanimous decision. The truth was, City Hall might have been torn apart with dissension. But dissidents in the bureaucracy, worried about job security, knew enough to keep their mouths shut. Since 1984, however, Remy's been out of the consensus business.

The Times editorial on air quality ("The Trail Grows Murkier," Aug. 11) was correct when it stated that blazing a new regulatory trail will be more difficult after the region fails to meet the Dec. 31 deadline for attainment of air quality standards. The editorial also correctly states that the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce thinks that the time has come to more carefully look to mobile and other, smaller, sources for emissions reductions, instead of primarily relying on still more controls on large stationary sources such as power plants and refineries.

The Times has been in the forefront in its support of a program for clean air, and in seeking commitment to an effective plan that can enable us to reach the nationally established ambient air-quality standards for the region (editorial, "Clean-Air Crunch," Feb. 17). We applaud The Times commitment to this goal, and we believe that only through a strong public information program can we truly generate commitment that will be necessary to achieve the path to clean air. The Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce was disappointed, however, in The Times characterization of the position of the business community relative to clean-air objectives.

Peter Ueberroth was not among the California Republicans invited to President Bush's inaugural. He barely knows the chairman of the state Republican Party, and he was not aware that an important GOP convention is coming up in Sacramento. But it doesn't matter. Ueberroth, president of the 1984 Olympics and currently commissioner of baseball, is one of his party's hottest prospects for governor in 1990.

More U.S. Customs Service personnel are needed to improve operations at Los Angeles ports, according to Rep. Edward R. Roybal (D-Los Angeles). The congressman's remark came at a press conference at Los Angeles International Airport attended by Rep. Glenn M. Anderson (D-Hawthorne), Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce President Ray Remy and Deputy Customs Commissioner Alfred DeAngelus.

Entrepreneur Laura Balverde-Sanchez earlier this month became the first Latina to become a director of the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce. Balverde-Sanchez's election is part of a push by Chamber President Ray Remy to break the business group's long history of electing only Anglo male directors. When Remy took over the top staff job at the chamber in 1984, only 5% of the board's 65 members were minorities. Now 15% are.

"Consolidate California Sprawl by Regional, Responsible Government" (by Ray Remy and Dan Garcia, Opinion, March 25) not only assumes regional and responsible are synonymous, but is a rewrite of the SCAG (Southern California Assn. of Governments) elitist theology that the people's preference for "a detached single family home . . . a private automobile . . . and strong local governments" is to be dismissed by bigger-is-better regionalists as "an anachronistic collective image of the ideal metropolitan area."
