California Briefing / Los Angeles

Knox moves from port to DWP

The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power has hired former state Assemblyman Wally Knox to become one of its top executives, just one week after a deputy mayor became interim general manager.

Knox will join the nation's largest municipally owned utility Nov. 2, becoming its director of external relations -- a post similar to one he held for the last six months at the Port of Los Angeles.

A harbor department spokesman said Knox left the port to avoid concerns about his wife's work representing the International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 68.

Knox's wife, Beth Garfield, works for the law firm of Holguin, Garfield and Martinez. According to its website, the firm also represents other longshore union locals.
