Greg Smith for City Attorney


 Los Angeles, February 4th– Today Greg Smith, candidate for City Attorney, released his first television ad entitled “Fought For Me.” Smith is the first candidate to release a television ad. The 30 second spot highights Smith’s career fighting for families who have been victims of racial discrimination or had been retaliated against for reporting corruption.

“Greg Smith has spent the mainstay of his career working to end discrimination and empower whistleblowers to stop corruption. We are confident that this television ad will resonate powerfully with voters across the City,” stated John Thomas, Smith’s Chief Strategist.

Last week Smith released his policy blueprint for the office of City Attorney “Fighting for Every Family.”

The mainstay of Greg Smith’s distinguished career as an attorney has been representing public safety officers in cases of willful discrimination, wrongful termination, whistleblowing and racism. Owner of a private law firm and Vietnam era Veteran, Greg Smith is a top-notch police attorney who has practiced for over 25 years representing members of law enforcement and community members who were victims of discrimination from all over the City. Smith has grown a reputation for being unafraid to take the tough cases and has worked with clients to expose waste, fraud and abuse. He represented one of the early whistleblowers that helped expose the Bell corruption scandal.

It is understood that the Mike Feuer campaign will also release a tv ad this week. It is unclear whether the Trutanich campaign will be able to mount a tv campaign, sources suggest that he appears to lack the funding necessary to compete with Feuer or Smith in tv, and is relying on a few mailers.
