Statement from Carmen Trutanich

"The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Last night, the citizens of Los Angeles took a gigantic leap toward changing Los Angeles. I am humbled and honored by the voters for putting your trust and faith in me. I will not let you down. I am excited to begin plans for my transition and bringing the best and brightest team of professionals together to reform the office of City
Attorney and bring honesty, integrity and transparency to City Hall.

It's a new day and I see a brighter tomorrow. I see a Los Angeles where we can measure our progress by the quality of our lives -- the purity of our air and water, the safety of our streets, the quiet enjoyment of our neighborhoods, and the excellence of our schools. As your City Attorney, I will work with every fiber of my being to be the people's lawyer -- a true advocate for a better Los Angeles. Though I do not formally take office until July 1, my work for the people begins today.

Once again, I thank you."

-Carmen Trutanich

trutanich is a total pud. He lives in San Pedro, total pudville. His clients are a joke, which is why he did not want to disclose the mom and pop low end stuff he does. He beat jack weiss, who is was and will always be a total dildo. but nuch is not a savior, he is a major league sheister who probably could not even pull down 200K.

He's already talking like a politican. Face the facts although I didn't like Weiss I have a huge problem with David Zahniser reporting hit pieces on Weiss but as a reporter not reporting the clients Trutanich failed to disclose even though it was legal.

For some reason I thought the journey of a thousand miles begins with a cash advance. Was I wrong? - All kidding aside...WELCOME Mr. City Attorney Trutanich! You will be great and the city is lucky to have you.

Chief Bratton was right! He said it was "a no brainer" to vote for Jack Weiss. Guess anyone who voted for Weiss did not need to use their brain after all! Go figure!

I have a problem with Zuma Dogg acting like this is all about him, rather than the candidates and the issues.

He and Phil are having a tough time leaving the stage from election day through now. The people have spoken and they are Mr. Last and Mr. Next to Last. They make a nice couple. Time for them to kiss and that should be the last word on the subject.

ZUMA SAYS HE 'CRASHED' THE TRUTANICH VICTORY PARTY, FAILING TO UNDERSTAND THAT EVERYBODY IN THE CITY WAS INVITED TO IT. YOU WERE INVITED, BUT THINK THAT IT TOOK A CRASHING TO GET INTO.

ANY WAYS, HERE IS PROOF THAT THE WHOLE THING HAS GOTTEN TO ZUMA DOGG'S ALREADY MASSIVE EGO, "Plus, the crowd itself was far too kind to Zuma Dogg, asking for autographs "for their kids" and people jumping up out of their seats to shake my hand and take picutres. THE MOST CLASSIC MOMENT is when a lady came RUNNING up to ZD saying, "I am finally face to face with you!!! We finally meet!"

WHOA, ZUMA DOGG, WHOA. YOU HAD YOUR MOMENT IN THE SUN, AND THAT WAS ON ELECTION DAY WHEN YOU CAME IN FOURTH OR FIFTH. LEAVE THE STAGE NOW AND LET THE WINNERS HAVE THEIR SUNSHINE, SUNSHINE.

It's disgraceful that Zahniser did at least a half-dozen hit pieces on Weiss to precipitate a negative outcome -- like he was engineering the fate that the OpEd people had said. People on this blog and Ron Kaye are gloating about it because they have no more ethics than does the Nooch.

They were also outrageous in claiming that Jack Weiss went negative and not reporting that the Nooch went far more negative far earlier. This was a disgusting hit job by a paper that's become the organ for Fox media.

From the Daily News

......in an analysis released last summer, Controller Laura Chick found the city raised $137 million from the trash fee hikes -
nearly three times more than it needed to pay the costs associated with the 405 cops it had hired during that period. If the mayor had stayed true to the spirit of his commitment back then, then L.A. would have plenty of money to finish the force expansion this coming fiscal year, as planned.
Instead, the mayor and City Council will likely be forced to slow down hiring to mere maintenance levels. The $7.01 billion budget passed by the City Council on Monday provides enough money to replace officers who retire or quit. The city will have to rely on federal stimulus money to expand the force.

Essentially, Villaraigosa and the City Council will need a federal bailout to deliver on their promise to expand the LAPD. Meanwhile, we will still be paying our monthly trash fees

You sound like a tough guy.

You should consider looking up Carmen Basilio and sharing your views on nomenclature with him.

Mr. Basilio is 82. He might have mellowed since his welterweight and middleweight world championship days.

Yeah, how DARE L.A. Times cause Jack Weiss to lose by 11 points. Remember, it had nothing to do with Jack Weiss or his campaign. If only L.A. Times would have been 11% more supportive of Jack, we would have the right city attorney, instead of the one who won by 11 points. That ball must be pretty heavy, cause you can't pick it up and move on. Maybe because now there is nothing to move on to, since your boy can't even think of throwing his hat in the ring with Gavin and Meg.

WTF do YOU know???
You Little Shit. These guys were candidates in OUR Democracy. YOU on the other hand, probably skip out on jury duty. Its' schmucks like you who would have us all believe that the Fu^%&^&$'s in power know something we don't. Dream on, loser. You are a scared, pathetic jerk who couldn't solve a problem even if the solution were given.
You're right- Why trust yourself, when bastards in suits claim expertise. Apparently YOU have never known ANY innovative success and wait for Godot to lead you. You make me wanna puke. NO, you make me actually puke. Uggg- I'm puking (sp?).
OK, I'm done, now, back to you, you. You make a great prisoner- Prisoner Syndrome. Keep defending your captors.
I'd like to meet your Mother.

The story today is about the reporter David Zahniser and all his hit pieces on Weiss just one week before the election. He's usually fair but everyone is now talking about the LA Slimes outright and blatant reporting against Weiss and not reporting the clients Trutanich has even though its legal and would have been easy for David Z to find. David Zahniser has become the story. There are tons of rumors why he would be so obvious. I'm estatic Weiss lost but this type of reporting is bullshit.

Our tax dollars going to Bitter Bernie.
LA Slimes....As retired LAPD chief, Bernard Parks earns a $265,090 annual pension. As the City Council's budget chief, he collects a $178,789 salary and warns pension obligations could bankrupt the city. Los Angeles Councilman Bernard Parks, City Hall's budget committee chief who is warning that soaring payroll and pension costs threaten the city's financial stability, receives $22,000 a month in city retirement benefits, in addition to his $178,789 a year salary, records and interviews show.

City Attorney Elect Carmen Trutanich:

Integrity, Transparency and Competency should be the hallmarks of your administration. Values such as these are now missing in City leadership and in the Branch Chiefs and Division Managers within the Office of the City Attorney.

There is only one place where those attributes you describe are currently missing in the City Attorney's Office:

in the office of Rocky Delgadillo.
