State Bar President Howard Miller announced Monday that after a nationwide search, the Board of Governors of the State Bar has selected former State Senator Joseph L. Dunn to be the new Executive Director of the State Bar. Dunn, 52, was a member of the California State Senate from 1998 to 2006, and in 2005 and 2006, served as Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The OC Register is reporting that Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido and his allies have fired the opening shot in the 2010 race for Santa Ana Mayor. When Alfredo Amezcua first announced his intentions to challenge the longtime Mayor, most pundits agreed he was the most credible challenger since Mayor Pulido won in 1994. This recent attack is evidence that the Mayor does fear the challenge that Alfredo Amezcua poses.
