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.

I'm sure MABA did not book a clown as a special guest emcee! Good luck Mario.

Oh boy! This should have all the excitment of a tree falling in an empty forrest.

What's his position on illegal immigration?

Good luck beating Steve Cooley. He told a group of us in Washington DC that he was going to run because he didn't think any of his Deputies were qualified or had a chance.

Way I heard it, Cooley said he was going to run IF none of his deputies were up to the task. Kinda different, but I guess you Trutanich supporters have to put the best spin on it that you can. Hey, can you give us a heads up on whether the Clown's going to do a repeat performance at the MABA dinner?

Mario will need a gig after he screws up the Jose Huizar campaign.

10:20AM "Mario will need a gig after he screws up the Jose Huizar campaign."

Michael Trujillo is running the Huizar campaign into the ground.

I know it's difficult for you Trutanich supporters to understand, but Michael Trujillo and Mario Trujillo are actually two different people.

This is not good news for Trutanich :)

In the primary, Mario will get a lot of support from the Latino community, and Lacey will get the South LA community plus the Westside Democrats. Jackson will have the hard core Republican vote (because unlike Trutanich, he's not afraid of his party affiliation). That leave Trutanich with ... maybe 3rd place?

One Term Trutanich

sounds like someone's supporters are getting both nervous and homophobic.

3:59pm - a typically Teutonic comment, must be a Trutanuch supporter.

Alan Jackson will wipe the floor with Trujillo. Look at the differences in the case they've tried. It's not even close.

4:33 - it'll be a battle for the gay vote.

Is Berger getting into the race? That low class cockney brit got more votes than any of these declared candidates.

His voice needs to be heard.

Berger will only jump in the race after Jack Weiss announces.

Berger is waiting to see what Cooley is going to do - just like everyone else.

I bet Trutanich will show up tonight, and I bet he will make a speech, just to prove he's not a clown like you say he is. I bet the press will be there too, and wouldn't it be funny if there's a bunch of people with 'Carmen the Clown' signs that suddenly appear? Great photo op, so make sure your blackberrys are ready to capture the moment.
