The Times reported on Jan. 19 that the City Council passed a new law which will violate every citizen's right to recall an elected official. The new "ethics reform measure," introduced by Councilman Hal Bernson, requires all five sponsors of recall petitions to individually submit full financial disclosure statements before they are allowed to begin a recall movement. The same disclosure rules will apply to all sponsors of city initiative drives, such as the two-term limit initiative now being circulated.

Re "112 Candidates Vie for Charter Reform Panel," Jan. 28. It is curious that only about 25 candidates have signed up to run for the eight City Council seats that are up for grabs in the April election. One would think more people would be interested in the job. On the other hand, 112 candidates signed up to run for 15 charter commissioner seats. These folks get no salary at all. What a delight to learn that 112 Angelenos are willing to donate two free years of their lives to improving the operation of the city, just because they want to help.

So Hal Bernson wants his critics to help him come up with solutions to the problem of traffic on Balboa Boulevard? Maybe these same critics can also come up with solutions to the problems that will occur when Mason and Corbin are opened up to serve Bernson's Porter Ranch project. The 2,000 extra cars on Balboa Boulevard during rush hour are but a drop in the bucket, compared to the 150,602 extra cars projected for Bernson's district when Porter Ranch is developed. If the critics really want to help, they can best do so by voting Bernson out of office on June 4. WALTER N. PRINCE Northridge Prince was a candidate in the April 9 primary election for Berson's seat.

Well, it seems that City Councilman Hal Bernson is at it again. According to Times reporter John Schwada (July 21), Bernson is putting together a "reform" panel of 20 people whose mission will be to find ways to repeal many of the land-use laws that now protect the city from overdevelopment. Bernson calls his hand-picked panel the "Task Force on Code Simplification." This is an interesting way to describe a group whose prime task is to clear the path for developers to stuff new projects down the throats of uninformed neighborhoods.

The Los Angeles Times quotes Councilman Hal Bernson as saying that Mayor Bradley is "sticking his nose in my district" by condemning the restrictions placed on the design of a Granada Hills mosque. Councilman Bernson has once again displayed the incredible arrogance that has come to characterize his entire term of office. It doesn't take a constitutional scholar to see that there is a very good likelihood that the City Council has infringed upon the religious freedom of the Muslim community by dictating the design of their place of worship.

A Northridge businessman angry over a redevelopment proposal that would affect his property holdings initiated the drive. Walter N. Prince and his supporters, who he says number more than 100, have until Nov.

A Northridge businessman who owns property in an area that Los Angeles City Councilman Hal Bernson wants to see redeveloped has launched a recall drive against Bernson, according to a document filed Monday with the city clerk's office. Walter N. Prince, of Chatsworth, said he has formed a group called Citizens United to Recall Bernson. He said he is the only active member of the group.

What a delight to learn that Cal State Northridge is now actively looking for entertainment production facilities and high-tech industries to locate on its North Campus ("Research Park May Fill Void at CSUN," Nov. 1). This is a much better use of the property than the shopping center concept promoted by the school for the past two years. The new tenants will provide revenue to the school and can provide on-site internships and training opportunities that will greatly assist the school in its primary function of educating 25,000 students.
