From the desk of Carmen Trutanich:
The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Last night, the citizens of Los Angeles took a gigantic leap toward changing Los Angeles. I am humbled and honored by the voters for putting your trust and faith in me. I will not let you down. I am excited to begin plans for my transition and bringing the best and brightest team of professionals together to reform the office of City Attorney and bring honesty, integrity and transparency to City Hall.
It's a new day and I see a brighter tomorrow. I see a Los Angeles where we can measure our progress by the quality of our lives -- the purity of our air and water, the safety of our streets, the quiet enjoyment of our neighborhoods, and the excellence of our schools. As your City Attorney, I will work with every fiber of my being to be the people's lawyer -- a true advocate for a better Los Angeles. Though I do not formally take office until July 1, my work for the people begins today.
Once again, I thank you.
