City attorney protests budget cut for his office

From Times Staff Reports
April 25, 2007

City Atty. Rocky Delgadillo urged the City Council on Tuesday to resist budget cuts that he says would affect gang-prevention programs his office runs in schools.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s budget calls for a 1.5% cut in the city attorney’s $96.4-million budget. “Now is not the time to unilaterally disarm in the fight to keep our kids and our campuses safe,” Delgadillo wrote.

The mayor’s press office replied: “The city attorney’s argument is completely false and misleading. The mayor’s budget adds gang prosecutors to his office. We are simply asking the city attorney to be a better manager of the taxpayers’ money.”
