By a MetNews Staff Writer


Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Edward H. Drayer has retired, the court said yesterday.

A court spokesperson said that Drayer, 64, retired Jan. 4.

A Bellflower native, Drayer served on the Bellflower City Council from 1978 to 1980 and then as mayor for the following two years. He attended Bellflower High School and then graduated from Cerritos College and California State University, Long Beach before receiving his law degree from Western State University College of Law in 1973.

Drayer began his legal career as a Los Angeles County deputy district attorney that year, and served for four years until he entered private practice with the law firm of McKenzie & Drayer in Bellflower in 1977. He entered solo practice in 1982, and after 14 years of practice was appointed to the Municipal Court.

Drayer, who could not be reached for comment, joined the Superior Court upon court unification in 2000.
