Dear TRU Friends,

We are less than two weeks from Election Day. We have been on the campaign trail with our grassroots message for eighteen months. Yes, we have come so far, but this is no time to slow down. I am counting on your ACTIVE support in new and old ways. First, catch up on our news. Then, pick up your phone, reach out to your email buddies, make your final donation, and ask every friend to help bring this race home!

Here is an update of the most current news surrounding the City Attorney's race:

John and Ken and Doug McIntyre Vote Trutanich:
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
During Monday evening drive time, I was interviewed on the John and Ken Show. At the end of their segment, John and Ken announced on air that they will vote for me. Doug McIntyre also welcomed me to his broadcast, again urging his listeners to vote Trutanich. These are TRU badges of honor since my hosts are known for their distrust of politicians. Their point is also mine: I am a lawyer, not a politician. Click here for John and Ken, podcast.

TRU Lawn Signs Are Ready for Pick Up:
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Due to the overwhelming demand for lawn signs, we have ordered a whole new batch. Call the campaign office at (818) 308-7400 to reserve yours now! From now through Election Day, our headquarters, at 12524 Ventura Boulevard in Studio City, will open from 10 to noon on Saturdays, in addition to weekday business hours, for sign pick up. The signs go quickly, so don't delay!


Trutanich Debates on KCRW Which Way LA:
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Last week I debated my opponent, Jack Weiss, on KCRW Which Way LA. His voice cracked when I asked him about his most recent violation of our ethics laws, the hosting of an illegal fundraiser. It is stunning to me that Weiss seeks election to the post responsible for enforcing the very laws that he routinely breaks. Click here to listen to the KCRW podcast.

LA Times Endorses Trutanich, Again!:
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
The LA Times endorsed me in the primary and has strengthened its message of support for this runoff election: "Trutanich would bring a fresh perspective to City Hall, along with the experience to deal with crime, the backbone to defend the city against lawsuits and threats of lawsuits, and an understanding of the many wearying assaults on neighborhoods that this office is best equipped to combat, from graffiti to dumping to illegal billboards."

I appreciate all you have done for me and I will never forget it.

Don't forget to vote this May 19th!

Yours TRU-ly,
Carmen Trutanich
