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.

The Los Angeles City Council awarded a $50,000 consulting contract Tuesday to the chief of the Animal Services Department who was fired by the mayor. The contract gives Guerdon Stuckey three months to file a report on several department issues, such as the spay-and-neuter program. Stuckey was fired in December by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who had promised to do so during his election campaign.

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.

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.

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.

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 Antonio Villaraigosa met Friday with animal activists who have been holding noisy protests at the homes of city employees and demanding the ouster of the head of the city's Department of Animal Services. As a mayoral candidate, Villaraigosa promised animal activists that he would fire Guerdon Stuckey, the department's general manager, but four months after taking office he has not taken that step.

After Mayor Hahn appointed Guerdon Stuckey to head the Los Angeles Department of Animal Services late last year, the former Rockville, Md., city planning official took up residence in a political hot zone. Conditions at L.A.'s six city shelters, which euthanized 29,624 of the 59,055 animals taken in during 2004, are a contentious issue in the upcoming mayoral election, and activists were disturbed by the absence of animal experience on Stuckey's resume.
