Here are a few highlights:
Greg Smith criticizes Carmen Trutanich for 'campaigning' rather than running the office
In answer to the question 'Is there anything that the City Attorney should be doing that he is not doing?' Smith cut to the chase, saying that Trutanich should not have spent the past two and a half years campaigning, first to be DA in violation of his 'Pledge to Serve,' and now to hang on to his job.
|Trutanich's expression looked like an admission when confronted with the accusation that|
he had spent two and a half years campaigning instead of running the office.
Face the camera during opening statements
The candidates were probably told to face the camera during their opening statements to appear to be talking to the viewers. It seems that somebody forget to tell Trutanich to look at the camera that is on, as he spent the beginning of his typically rambling opening looking at the wrong camera.
The entire debate can be viewed on PBS SoCal Insider's website.
