Trutanich names key appointments

City Attorney-elect Carmen Trutanich announced that former Speaker Robert Hertzberg and former District Attorney Robert Philibosian will co-chair his transition team. Jane Usher, the former president of the city planning commission, will be the transition's executive director. When Trutanich takes office on July 1, his chief of staff will be former prosecutor William Carter, a partner at Musick Peeler, and the chief deputy will be Curt Livesay, who used to be the chief deputy for District Attorney Steve Cooley. Hertzberg and Usher are intriguing for having served in key spots for Antonio Villaraigosa — Hertzberg as chairman of the mayor's transition in 2005.
