McGreevy leaving City Hall

Patrick McGreevy, a fixture at City Hall for the L.A. Times, is transferring to the buyout-impacted Sacramento bureau. Memo after the jump.

To: The Staff
From: Janet Clayton, Assistant Managing Editor

I am pleased to announce that Patrick McGreevy will move to the Sacramento Bureau next month.

Patrick has been with the Los Angeles Times for eight years. Most recently, he has covered the police chief and the city attorney's office as part of the paper's City/County Bureau. Patrick is a tenacious, indefatigable reporter who has developed tremendous sources throughout city government and is respected - some would say feared - by those he covers. He has been particularly forceful in his coverage of law enforcement strategies in the region's battle against violent gangs.

He began his Times career at the San Fernando Valley edition, covering city government, redevelopment, poverty, and elections for city council and Congress. Since moving to City Hall he has, over the years, covered the Los Angeles City Council, mayors James Hahn and Antonio Villaraigosa as well as the offices of Police Chief Bill Bratton and City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo. Patrick previously worked for the Los Angeles Daily News and San Bernardino Sun. He has a bachelor's degree in journalism from San Jose State University.

Patrick is a first-rate addition to our Sacramento Bureau. He starts June 18.
