Rick Tuttle endorses in 5th council race

Former city Controller Rick Tuttle had considered running in the open race to replace Jack Weiss on the City Council. He opted against, and now has thrown his backing to Ron Galperin. "Ron Galperin's business experience and fiscal expertise are just what we need in City Hall," Tuttle says in the press release.

On Measure B: Councilman Bill Rosendahl threw his support to the measure. Meanwhile, LA Observed columnist Bill Boyarsky attended a debate on the solar and jobs measure and said he's still for it after hearing Ron Kaye rail against it: "I agree with Kaye that the process stinks, although I doubt if the city council would have been capable of holding intelligent hearings on the matter." Bill's post.
