2010 Election Results


On behalf of the Los Angeles City Attorneys' Association, I am pleased
to announce the results of the 2010 board election.  New and returning
officers and directors are as follows:

First Vice-President:  Howard Fuchs (two-year term)
Second Vice-President:  Mark Lambert (one-year term)
Treasurer:  Jule Bishop
Criminal Director:  Patrick Hiscocks
Criminal Director:  Nick Karno
Civil Director:  Marie McTeague  (ran unopposed and therefore re-elected)

The newly-elected or re-elected members will join the current board,
which is composed as follows:

President:  Oscar Winslow
Secretary:  Juliann Anderson
Civil Director:  Garcelle Embry
Criminal Director:  Ann Rosenthal
Proprietary Director:  Christopher Bobo

Please note that voter turnout was slightly less than 50 percent of
our 432 members.  For those who voted, thank you for supporting our
union democracy.  For those who did not cast ballots this year, please
join us in 2011 to elect LACAA's president, second vice-present,
secretary, and proprietary director, and other Board Members.


At its June 9 meeting, JLMBC awarded new contracts for health insurance providers. Anthem Blue Cross has been selected to replace Blue Shield as the exclusive provider for PPO, HMO Full and Narrow Network plans, and a new alternate regional network plan, "Vivity." Anthem anticipates minimal disruption of services for members who use UCLA and Cedars facilities. Kaiser Permanente is still available for alternate HMO health insurance coverage. For more information on how this may impact your options during Open Enrollment for 2017, contact the City's Employee Benefits Division: (213) 978-1655

LACAA congratulates Civil Director Marie McTeague on her well deserved retirement. Her brilliance, fierce advocacy for LACAA members, personal sacrifices and sense of justice have been the cornerstone of LACAA's success. We will truly miss her presence in the office (but still have her cell phone number).

The Board is pleased to announce that LACAA has retained the law firm of MASTAGNI, HOLSTEDT, AMICK, MILLER & JOHNSEN as General Counsel.
