Antonio's security detail: $450,000 a year

An elected San Francisco supervisor has been agitating up there for details on the cost of Mayor Gavin Newsom's security detail, without much luck. Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi, however, easily tracked down a number for the cost of assigning two LAPD officers fulltime to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa during the day and one at night. About $450,000 a year, he was told, per the Chronicle's Matier and Ross.
