City Hall blast from the past

credit
A tribute to retired City Hall powerhouse Ron Deaton last evening brought out "a who's who in the city of Los Angeles," in the words of City Council member Wendy Greuel. Speakers included Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (on his birthday), ex-mayor Jim Hahn, Rep. Howard Berman and most present and living ex-City Council members. Former members visible in this picture include, from left, Robert Ferrell, Mike Woo, Hal Bernson, Mike Hernandez, Rita Walters, Jackie Goldberg, Cindy Miscikowski and Joy Picus. (See larger.) Bob Ronka is obscured behind Miscikowski. Hahn, who is just off screen, recently joined Alternative Resolution Services as a for-hire mediator, the LABJ says.
