The fired Animal Services Department director filed an appeal Wednesday with the Los Angeles City Council, charging that the mayor terminated him to reduce the "political noise" of animal rights extremists, not based on his performance. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa denied Guerdon H. Stuckey's charge. "I removed Mr. Stuckey because he wasn't up to the job," he said Wednesday. The city clerk said the appeal will be on the agenda for the council's next meeting, Jan. 10.

After a year of controversy over spending by the Department of Water and Power, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa called Thursday for the agency's governing board to begin a performance evaluation of its general manager. A letter from Villaraigosa details 37 goals and issues that should be considered in evaluating Ron Deaton, who was appointed to head the DWP in November 2004 by then-Mayor James K. Hahn. "It's a blueprint of what we expect of him," said DWP board member Nick Patsaouras.

The Los Angeles City Council balked Wednesday at reinstating the head of the Animal Services Department despite his argument that the mayor fired him without advance complaints about his performance. Guerdon H. Stuckey needs 10 of the 15 council members to vote to give him his job back, something that appears unlikely. The council took no action Wednesday because some members said they needed more time and information.

The City Council met in closed session Tuesday to discuss an appeal by Guerdon Stuckey, who was fired by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa last month as general manager of the Animal Services Department. Stuckey has appealed his termination, and his attorney has hinted that he may sue the city. But Stuckey has not yet filed a claim -- a precursor to a lawsuit -- against the city, according to City Clerk Frank Martinez.

Los Angeles Mayor James K. Hahn announced Monday that he has appointed a new general manager to head the city's besieged animal services department. Guerdon H. Stuckey, the director of neighborhood and community services for Rockville, Md., replaces Jerry Greenwalt, who retired in the spring amid an intense campaign by animal rights activists that included demonstrations at his home to protest conditions in the city's shelters.

Re "Animal house," editorial, Dec. 19 Radical animal activists had little to do with Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's decision to replace Guerdon H. Stuckey with Ed Boks as the general manager of the Los Angeles Animal Services Department. In fact, responsible, law-abiding, humane community leaders have been lobbying since the mayor took office in July for a change in administration. We are not radical activists, but hardworking volunteers who spend the majority of our free time and most of our disposable income keeping the homeless animals of Los Angeles safe.

WITH THE MESSY FIRING of Los Angeles Animal Services general manager Guerdon H. Stuckey, the extremist protesters who mounted a demoralizing battle against him got their way, and more. They got an Animal Services Department that will be further weakened and divided by revolving-door leadership. They also stained Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.
