Former President of the Long Beach Bar Association and current Long Beach City College Trustee Doug Otto has announced his endorsement of City Attorney Charles Parkin in the June 3rd municipal general election.
Otto, a recent Mayoral candidate and Long Beach Bar Association Lawyer of the year in 2005 said, "I'm endorsing Charlie because he has the breadth of experience as an attorney to fulfill this essential role. We need a city attorney with the background and experience to guide and advise the city in all its complex undertakings.” Otto added, “This job requires expertise in municipal law, experience in complex litigation, and the leadership to bring the whole team together. Charles Parkin qualifies on every count. James Johnson does not.”
