Former City Councilman Robert Farrell, who resigned from his post after 17 years, is seeking a temporary job in Mayor Tom Bradley's office, city officials said.
"Mr. Farrell has approached the mayor about a short-term project of no more than six weeks concerning economic development in South-Central Los Angeles," Bradley spokesman Bill Chandler said. "The mayor has asked Mr. Farrell to provide a written proposal of the project."
Farrell, who was replaced by Mark Ridley-Thomas in the June 4 election for the 8th District seat, was out of town and could not be reached for comment. But Chandler, who could not provide more details about the request, said Farrell has not yet submitted the proposal and "no final decision has been made."
