Trujillo To Announce DA Candidacy at MABA Dinner
Deputy District Attorney Mario Trujillo is expected formally announce his candidacy for Los Angeles District Attorney in the 2012 election at the Mexican American Bar Association's 51st Annual Installation and Gala event, according to an article in the Los Angeles Metropolitan News Enterprise. Trujillo is, of course, a former president of MABA.
We previously listed Mario Trujillo as likely to run after Jackie Lacey, Alan Jackson and Danette Meyers had announced their candidacies, and indeed Trujillo has followed through. It remains to be seen whether any of the other potential candidates we've mentioned will follow suit, but perhaps we'll hear something from Assembleymember Mike Feuer and Deputy District Attorney Steve Ipsen soon? They're next up on our list, but so far it's been uncharacteristically quiet, especially from Ipsen ...
Of course it's anything but quiet whenever City Attorney Carmen Trutanich is concerned. The LA Weekly published an article last week where Trutanich "broke the rules" at a San Pedro eatery and "talked politics." Perhaps this was a portend for his impromptu interruption at the South East District Bar Association awards dinner where, coincidentally, Trujillo picked up the Attorney of the Year award.
The MABA agenda for this Saturday night's event at the JW Marriott at LA Live does not list Trutanich as a speaker, however, it does list a "special guest emcee" so it remains to be seen whether there will be a repeat performance from Trutanich.
Tickets for MABA's 51st Annual Installation and Gala event are available from their website. It promises to be an interesting evening.
