Endorsement: Kenneth Mejia for city controller
Kenneth Mejia is a long-time advocate with many years of legal experience and a deep understanding of the issues at hand.
He is the author of “The Lawyer’s Guide to California Governance”, published by a subsidiary of the law firm of Kirkland and Ellis. It is a “how-to” book that provides useful guidance on everything from how to draft a successful business plan to how to choose the right city attorney.
He has also created an online database of lawyers throughout California, called “California Lawyer List”. The database allows members to search for attorneys in any particular city. The site also provides links to information on local businesses, including links to the business directory and websites.
“I have been honored to serve as a city attorney for the city of Santa Clarita, California, for the past 12 years,” he said. “The city of Santa Clarita has always been my home, and I know Santa Clarita residents are very excited about the prospect of having a city attorney with 25 years of law firm experience.”
Kenneth Mejia is a member of the board of directors of the University of Southern California’s School of Law-Santa Clara.
Los Angeles City Council member Mike Bonin is seeking re-election. Bonin is seeking his third four-year term, representing District 4 in the Los Angeles City Council.
Bonin is running unopposed. He plans to focus on a few key legislative priorities, including reforming L.A. City Council’s antiquated rules for appointing the city’s three new city administrators and creating a new council member career ladder.
Bonin’s district covers the northern portion of the city of Los Angeles and a portion of the city of Inglewood. He was elected in 2008 in the first election of his four-year term.
“I am running for city council because I believe that more needs to be done to enhance the quality of life for all Los Angeles residents,” Bonin said. “It’s time to put our citizens first, and working together we can get things done.”
“I have served the people of Los Angeles for more than 25 years,”
