Mike Feuer announces bid for L.A. city attorney
Assemblyman Mike Feuer officially announced his candidacy for Los Angeles city attorney Tuesday, and said he has raised more than $300,000 in his campaign treasury.
“I’ll strive to make our streets safe, protect consumers, preserve our environment, improve our business climate and stand up for working families,” Feuer said in a statement Tuesday. “Whether working to keep kids out of gangs, prosecute criminals, or fight for the rights of everyday Angelenos, I’ll do all I can to bring energy, vision and integrity to the job.”
The current city attorney, Carmen Trutanich, is running for district attorney.
A former Los Angeles city councilman, Feuer ran for city attorney in 2001. He finished first in a crowded primary field but lost a run-off against Rocky Delgadillo. Feuer was elected to the Assembly in 2006, and is barred from seeking reelection because of term limits.
