Activist Linda Griego Named Deputy Mayor

Mayor Tom Bradley on Wednesday appointed developer and activist Linda Griego to serve as deputy mayor, filling a $99,639-a-year position previously held by Ed Avila.

Avila was recently appointed, after a national search, to become administrator of the Community Redevelopment Agency.

Griego, 43, a member of the CRA’s Board of Commissioners and co-owner of a popular downtown restaurant, was selected to stimulate redevelopment and attract new business to Los Angeles, Bradley said. Griego, who will begin serving as deputy mayor Nov. 1, said she intends to work with the CRA and planning officials to generate affordable housing projects for people who work in downtown Los Angeles.
