Just noticed that Edward Lee, the former city attorney for Bell who is also the city attorney for Covina, is a partner with the law firm Best, Best and Krieger.
You know who else is a partner with BB&K? Sonia Carvalho, city attorney for Azusa.
It isn’t necessarily fair to lump Carvalho in with Lee, considering Azusa doesn’t pay its city manager $800,000 or its city council $100,000 annually. But it is interesting to see how intertwined various city administrations are throughout Los Angeles County.
UPDATE: Thomas Himes just reported the news that former Bell attorney and Covina city attorney Edward Lee has resigned from BB&K.
