First AME Church Pastor Endorses Feuer for City Attorney


The Mike Feuer campaign announced in a press release Tuesday that Rev. J. Edgar Boyd, the influential pastor of Los Angeles’ First African Methodist Episcopal (FAME) Church, has personally endorsed Feuer in the race for city attorney.

The campaign noted that the reverend’s backing does not imply an endorsement from the church.

The release quotes Boyd as saying:

“Mike Feuer enjoys an exceptional reputation in our community, and has a long history of working closely with FAME to protect our seniors and families from those who would prey on them… I’m confident he will make an outstanding City Attorney.”

Boyd’s endorsement comes after Feuer’s recent announcement of the support of Rev. Dr. Cecil “Chip” Murray, who served as pastor of First AME for 27-years.

The Los Angeles Superior Court has announced the following judicial assignments:

Effective Dec. 3, Judge Halim Dhanidina is moving from Department 4 in Compton to Department 8 in Long Beach, Judge Chet L. Taylor is moving from that department to Department 5 in Torrance, and Judge David Sotelo is moving from that department to Department P in the same courthouse.

Effective Dec. 17, Judge David Walgren will move from Department A5 at the Michael D. Antonovich Antelope Valley Courthouse in Lancaster to Department A17 in the same courthouse, and Judge Hayden Zacky, who now sits in Department A17, will move to Dept. N in San Fernando.
