Dakota Communications and respected Political Consultant Rick Taylor signs on to rehabilitate the politically-damage image of City Attorney Carmen Trutanich.
As we reported yesterday,
Dakota Communications Rick Taylor has signed on for two jobs and an undisclosed pay day, with politically-damage goods City Attorney Carmen Trutanich. Image rehabilitation will be job number one and then the task of getting Nuch re-elected to a second term is job two. One observer noted that just the task of rehabilitating the damage image of the San Pedro attorney, is taxing enough for most consultants. Then you add the fact that you are engage in a re-election campaign and having to raise money from a zero sum, well ............. you get the idea of the challenge ahead for Taylor. But as the LA Dragnet Blog opines,
there could be some major upside for Taylor and Dakota Communications if they are successful with Nuch's political rehabilitation, which can be describe in two words, "lobbying access"
. Oh BTW!! One last question for Taylor, is Zev running?
CD 9 City Council Candidate David Roberts quickly raises first $50,000
CD 9 City Council Candidate David Roberts
It seems like yesterday that the former 2012 CD 9 representative to the tainted 2012 Redistricting Commission was announcing his intentions to replace City Councilwoman Jan Perry. Now as of late last week, Roberts is reporting that his campaign has raised its first $50,000 in contributions.
This puts Roberts about even with fellow CD 9 candidates Assemblyman Mike Davis and controversial former CD 14 Chief of Staff Ana Cubas. All three are behind surprising fundraising leader LAPD's Terry Hata, who has raised six-figures in contributions.
