Trutanich supporter places anti-Weiss ad

A full-page ad on Page 9 of today's L.A. Times takes Councilman Jack Weiss to task for a proposed development near Cedars-Sinai. It's signed by Cary Brazeman as president of the Clark-Swall Homeowners Association. He also id's himself as a member of the L.A. Conservancy and the Urban Land Instiutute. On city ethics commission financial reports, Brazeman is better known as a $2000 donor to Carmen Trutanich, Weiss's rival for City Attorney in next month's runoff election. He also threw $100 toward losing challenger Noel Weiss in the primary.
