The Metropolitan Water District board meets today to select a new chief executive as Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and his deputies lobby hard to give the job to Richard Katz, a close ally. Normally a subcommittee would talk to the candidates, but this time the finalists will get their first interviews by the full board when a special meeting of the 37-member body convenes with Katz and four others, said Chairman Wesley Bannister. "There has been no interview process," Bannister said.
