Good for Steven Gourley for speaking out and saying it like it is--the plain and simple truth! I think Mr. Gourley deserves accolades for addressing this critical problem. I admire his straightforward comments and he has my support. Finally there is someone with integrity who doesn't talk out of both sides of his/her mouth, someone who will address what is even if he receives some flak, someone who will take a stand! Mr. Gourley, read my lips--thank you! JUDY SUMMER WINICK Beverly Hills

Steven Gourley, a former Culver City mayor, was confirmed as director of the Department of Motor Vehicles on Wednesday by a state Senate committee. Senate leader John L. Burton (D-San Francisco) had delayed action on Gourley, who was appointed last year by Gov. Gray Davis, because of the governor's controversial decision to fight for the state's right to charge disabled drivers a $6 fee for their blue parking placards.

I was extremely disappointed to once again read misinformation about Culver City in the Los Angeles Times, this time in the Westside, June 8. The article labeled "Culver City" news is actually about the Mar Vista section of Los Angeles and not about Culver City. Both the Mar Vista Gardens, owned by the Los Angeles City Housing Authority, and the Mar Vista Family Center are located in Los Angeles. Portions of the Mar Vista section of the 6th District of Los Angeles, represented by Councilwoman Ruth Galanter, have a Culver City ZIP code but are not in Culver City.

Differing philosophies about what the city's attitude toward business should be are emerging as a key issue in the Culver City Council campaign. Five candidates are competing for three seats in the April 14 election. In an effort to unseat two incumbents known for their slow-growth leanings, two challengers are painting the city as hostile to business interests. Richard Alexander, who served on the City Council for four consecutive terms ending in 1990, said he came out of retirement because he couldn't bear to watch city government strangle business with excessive regulation.

Culver City Mayor Steven Gourley, known for not mincing words and for his occasionally unorthodox ideas, let loose this week with a proposal he admits is controversial: Close the U.S. borders to undocumented immigrants. "If George Bush wants to draw a line in the sand, he should draw a line between Tijuana and San Diego, not just between Iraq and Kuwait," Gourley said in his "State of the City" address Tuesday.

Reflecting on some of the problems enumerated by Mayor Steven Gourley of Culver City that result from Latino immigration (Times, March 28), I might also add that as soon as these new arrivals become citizens, they qualify for all the benefits of affirmative action--a system set up to rectify past discrimination. Ergo, the Anglo male is pushed even farther back down the line. What kind of justice is this? JAMES COYNE Santa Monica

Culver City has approved an interim ordinance that requires developers to provide 3.5 parking spaces for three-bedroom units in multifamily dwellings, replacing an earlier requirement of 2.5 spaces. Councilman Steven Gourley, who requested the stricter limits, said many three-bedroom apartments are rented by groups of adults, who tend to have more cars, than by families with young children.
