Mid-Day Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Tuesday
** "Mr. Trutanich, your appointment is next".
And what appointment awaits Mr Trutanich tonight at 8:00 P.M.within the headquarters of AFSCME 36 off of Wilshire? According to the blogger at LA Dragnet, candidates for Los Angeles County District Attorney will be interview this evening and the current City Attorney has been sandwich between DA candidates Steve Ipsen and Jackie Lacey, during tonight's AFSCME interviews of seven candidates to replace current District Attorney Steve Cooley. Thus, if Nuch shows, then all speculation on Trutanich's fling with running for D.A. can be set aside once and for all.
We can add that last week, a source close to City Attorney Trutanich stated that it wasn't if, but when Nuch would throw his hat into the crowded D.A. race. Now it looks that his effort to replace Cooley will begin this evening.
** The City Maven reports that the nominee to become the City of Los Angeles first "DWP Ratepayer Advocate" Frederick H. Pickel has been confirmed by Councilwoman Jan Perry's Energy and Environment Committee, with a full council confirmation vote likely next week.
