Toward the end of their sharp-edged debate before a downtown business group Wednesday, the two candidates for Los Angeles city attorney were asked to name their most significant endorsement--a tricky task for any campaigner leery of offending supporters who go unmentioned. City Councilman Mike Feuer named U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and state Atty. Gen. Bill Lockyer and segued into a long list of other Democratic elected officials before settling on the City Attorneys Assn.

Councilman Mike Feuer on Wednesday accused his opponent for city attorney, Deputy Mayor Rocky Delgadillo, of avoiding televised debates in their June 5 runoff contest. "Rocky Delgadillo is trying to hide his inexperience and lack of vision from the public by ducking virtually every debate to which we have been invited," Feuer said in a statement. There have been at least two invitations to appear together on local cable and public television programs, Feuer said.

Los Angeles City Councilman Mike Feuer entered City Hall nearly two years ago brimming with idealism and a promise to champion government and campaign finance reform. But Feuer's zeal and his drive to reform City Hall have earned the ire of some council members who have dubbed him "Saint Michael." The nickname is not meant as a compliment. It is not the first time Feuer has come under fire for his reformist positions. The latest criticism, however, has been more public and harsh.

Responding to requests from reform advocates in the San Fernando Valley, a Los Angeles city councilman suggested Tuesday creating a citizens panel with the authority to put government reform ideas directly on the ballot. The proposal by Mike Feuer is in response to complaints by Valley reform leaders who worry that city lawmakers are unwilling to adopt major revisions to the city's 71-year-old charter.

Citing critical parking shortages in parts of Los Angeles, City Councilman Mike Feuer has called for the city to explore a new way to raise money for garage construction. Feuer introduced a motion last week before the City Council that instructs the city administrative officer, the Department of Transportation and the chief legislative analyst to study the idea of issuing bonds to raise money for garage construction.

Councilman Mike Feuer had a good idea to raise money for more public parking. So good that another council member--in fact, another Mike--had already thought of it. On Feb. 16, Feuer proposed that the city administrative officer, the Department of Transportation and the chief legislative analyst study the idea of issuing bonds to raise funds for garage construction. Feuer did so unaware that a similar motion had been introduced a few months ago by colleague Mike Hernandez.

After a news conference Wednesday to mark his election to the Los Angeles City Council, Mike Feuer and his wife were introduced to his new colleagues sitting around the council chamber's trademark "horseshoe." Councilman Joel Wachs joked that Feuer's election not only brings another liberal Democrat to a panel already dominated by Democrats but also will shift the seating assignments in the chamber, which are arranged by alphabetical order around the horseshoe configuration.

Firing the first salvo in the runoff campaign, 5th District City Council candidate Mike Feuer accused Barbara Yaroslavsky on Tuesday of trying to limit the number of debates the two will attend prior to the June 6 runoff--a charge that Yaroslavsky's camp calls ludicrous. Feuer, former director of a legal services clinic, based his charges on a letter that Yaroslavsky sent Monday requesting a meeting with Feuer's representatives to discuss the upcoming debate schedule.

Los Angeles City Councilman Mike Feuer announced Thursday that he will support a longstanding plan to construct a parking structure in the middle of Westwood Village. But Feuer said he would ask the city architect to modify the plans slightly before the councilman approves them. Business and property owners in Westwood Village had been waiting several weeks for Feuer's decision on the proposal, which they have been working on for the last decade.
