Kelly Martin returning to city payroll

Martin had been chief of staff to Mayor Richard Riordan back in the day. A fellow Riordan Administration alum, City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo, today named her general counsel for Los Angeles World Airports, the proprietary department that runs LAX. Going to be a busy next few years there, with the selection of a new general manager to replace the departing Lydia Kennard and the reconstruction projects at LAX. Hey, how is that search for a new GM going? I hear not so well — the mayor's office reportedly rejected the candidates who were hurriedly interviewed over Christmas and demanded an actual international search for someone qualified.
