|'Mulholland Terrace' cites a City Attorney Observer|
as the source for a rumor of a split at the CA's Office
Usher is known to be a hard-liner on billboards, and perhaps is perplexed that Trutanich might consider throwing his support behind the Wilshire-Grand Sign District. The City Attorney had previously opined that any new billboards in the City could undermine the validity of his citywide ban and lead to another billboard bonanza.
Trutanich may nevertheless be inclined to support the Wilshire Grand project in order to curry support from the Mayor's Office and others for his ACE Program, which was the subject of harsh criticism over the weekend. Purely coincidentally, the long dormant City Clerk file on the ACE Program (File 10-0085) was the subject of activity last week when it received a "Thumb's Up" report from the City's Chief Administrative Officer Miguel Santana, who reports to the Mayor's Office ...

Pure speculation, but the rumor is that Steve Ipsen will not run for District Attorney as previously reported here, and instead support Alan Jackson's candidacy.
ADDA Officer Resignation?
Comments received here over the weekend suggest a senior officer of the ADDA has resigned. Despite attempts to confirm or deny the rumor with ADDA President Hyatt Seligman, Los Angeles Dragnet has not received any confirmation or denial from Seligman.
