Brown Names Attorney Eduardo Angeles to Nursing Board
By a MetNews Staff Writer
Gov. Jerry Brown yesterday named Los Angeles Senior Assistant City Attorney Eduardo Angeles to the California Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians.
Angeles, 48, has been at the City Attorney’s Office since 2002. Then-City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo brought him here from San Francisco to serve as managing assistant of the Airport Division.
He spent 11 years in the San Francisco City Attorney’s Office, rising through the ranks to become head of the Fire Department and Public Protection Team. He explained in an interview, not long after coming to Los Angeles, that few lawyers specialize in airports law, and that to progress, attorneys must be prepared to move from airport to airport.
A graduate of UC Santa Barbara and Hastings College of the Law, he served as president of the Asian Bar of California and the Filipino Bar Association of Northern California before coming to this part of the state.
Angeles announced late last year that he would be a candidate for Los Angeles city attorney. He dropped out of the race before filing nomination papers, however, reporting that he had raised only $70,000 through Sept. 30.
Michael Feuer won the election after spending more than $1.6 million, according to his official reports. Incumbent Carmen Trutanich spent more than $960,000 before losing the runoff to Feuer, and attorney Greg Smith spent more than $ 1 million before being eliminated in the primary.
Members of the Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians do not require Senate confirmation and the compensation is $100 per diem. Angeles is a Democrat.
