Mayor Villaraigosa has appointed Andrea Sheridan Ordin to fill a term on the city's Board of Police Commissioners — a panel she sat on for five years earlier in the mayor's administration. Most recently she was the county counsel, a post she retired from earlier this year. Ordin is the former US Attorney for this region and served on the Christopher Commission that made recommendations on how to reform the LAPD after the Rodney King riots in the early 1990s.
