Nominating Committee Chooses Annaluisa Padilla for Los Angeles County Bar Association Vice President
By a MetNews Staff Writer
Immigration attorney Annaluisa Padilla has been chosen by the Nominating Committee of the Los Angeles County Bar Association for the position of vice president.
That would put her on the leadership ladder and, if the committee’s choices do not draw opposition, she would become president in 2019-20. However, as dissension within the organization swells, there are rumblings that a competing slate will emerge.
President-Elect Margaret Stevens will automatically assume the top post in July. The current senior vice president, Michael K. Lindsey, was nominated for the office of president-elect, and Vice President David K. Reinert was nominated to succeed Lindsey.
Nominated to serve as trustees were James “Jim” P. Clark, Miguel Tomas Espinoza, Oscar Rene Gutierrez, Princeton H. Kim, John F. Hartigan, Diana K. Rodgers, Marc L. Sallus, Roxanne M. Wilson, and Ronnivashti Whitehead.
Other LACBA members can compete for any of these offices if they turn in a petition with the names of 100 members by April 30.
Padilla, who was born in Guatemala, immigrated to the United States in 1983. Her law degree is from Whittier Law School.
