In the first shake-up of Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan's inner circle, Deputy Mayor Jadine Nielsen announced Tuesday that she will resign at the end of the week--just three months into the new Administration. Nielsen, the city's first Asian-American deputy mayor and one of Riordan's closest aides, said her decision to leave the $99,639-a-year post was entirely her own and that she is leaving the mayor's staff to have more time to pursue her interests in state and national politics.

I can confirm Harry Eiler's dismay (Valley Commentary, Nov. 14) about the lack of Republicans in the Riordan Administration. After volunteering more than 100 hours in the Riordan campaign starting in February and ending with the June victory, I submitted my resume plus personal letters to both Jadine Nielsen and Tom LaBonge requesting a staff job. I did finally get a cursory interview with Tom LaBonge in August, which I followed up with...

A campaign official who helped Richard Riordan's victory in the Los Angeles mayoral primary has defected to Michael Woo's camp, maintaining that he was uncomfortable with the conservative tenor of Riordan's campaign. In an interview arranged by the Woo campaign, Michael Dolan spoke Tuesday about his defection and acknowledged that he was let go by Riordan's operation before he jumped ship.

Jadine Nielsen has power. She has the ear of the mayor of the nation's secondlargest city, she speaks for the mayor, and she certainly has the mayor's confidence. Indeed, Richard Riordan, the new mayor of Los Angeles, likes to say that she can not only turn Los Angeles around, but "she's tough enough to turn the world around." One of Riordan's five deputy mayors, Nielsen is actually the first among equals, with the most responsibility, the most authority, the highest pay.

In yet another change in Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan's top staff, Deputy Mayor Mary Leslie said Monday she is leaving at the end of the month to head a nonprofit foundation. As the mayor's top economic development aide and Washington liaison, Leslie, 36, presided over the city's embarrassing failure last year to win a lucrative federal empowerment zone designation.
OPINION
July 25, 1993
Your article "Ethnic Mix, Valley Clout Mark Riordan Appointees" (July 17) says it all. Apparently, if you belong to the correct group, live in the right part of the city, or supported Richard Riordan's campaign, you have all the qualifications necessary to be appointed to an important, sensitive post in one of the city's departments. Having the necessary administrative skills, technical background or experience is a second order priority in the selection process, if at all. Based on his appointments to date, we can look forward to four years of cronyism, sweetheart deals, bloated expense accounts and degradation of public services.
