The occupant of the post is in the spotlight and wields a lot of power. An effective City Attorney can do a great deal of good. So, does the current officeholder, Carmen Trutanich, want to keep one of the best jobs in L. A. for four more years? He probably knows, but the rest of the city doesn’t. He could tell us, but he won’t. He could take steps that serve the citizenry, but instead he’s focusing on his own agenda. This is not only bothersome from a political standpoint, it’s also a smack in the face to the voters who elected Trutanich three years ago. This was someone, after all, who came in touting himself as something different. He wasn’t, he told voters time and again, a career politician. It is time for Trutanich to publicly declare whether he’ll run again for City Attorney in 2013, or if he will ch...
