"Voters could assemble a fairly good city attorney using parts from the five candidates who are running to succeed Rocky Delgadillo in the March 3 election. From Michael Amerian they could pull a knowledge of the office and of the kind of management it might take to get the best work from the lawyers and support staff. From David Berger they could get solid prosecutorial experience in Superior Court and a healthy impatience with politics. From Jack Weiss they could access sharp intelligence and strategic thinking. From Noel Weiss they could glean a much-needed passion and ability to advocate for average Angelenos against the machinations of City Hall. None of the candidates is perfect, but we believe the best package of civil and criminal know-how, and the right combination of savvy and arm's length distance from City Hall politics, are offered by Carmen "Nuch" Trutanich. The Times endorses Trutanich for city attorney."
