On May 9 Councilman Mike Woo signed an outrageous "compact" with the Studio City Residents Assn. and the Studio City Chamber of Commerce. This insidious and arrogant "compact" disenfranchises the majority of citizens of Studio City.

We are very concerned with the coverage that misrepresents our involvement against a proposed preferential parking district. The Studio City Chamber of Commerce, not Art's Deli, is directing the efforts regarding the preferential parking district. Although we are members of the chamber and support a fair and equitable solution to the parking problem in Studio City, we have no special or unique role in the effort.

We pride ourselves on our good relationship with our neighbors and fully expect that our mutual parking problems will be resolved in this same spirit.

As a member of the Studio City Residents Assn.'s board of directors, Woods decided to organize those who felt the same way.
