CITY HALL — After two months without a federal lobbyist, the City Council is expected to approve a temporary contract with its former lobbying firm until the bidding process for a new one is completed. The council will review a contract with Washington, D.C.-based David Turch and Associates from Sept. 1 through Nov. 30, when city officials expect the new bidding process to be finished. The city has gone without federal lobbying services since June 30, when the council voted 3 to 2 against a one-year, $88,000 renewal with Turch, instead deciding to explore other possibilities.

Claudia Peschiutta WASHINGTON -- Forget ideology and the nation's future. When picking a candidate to support in the 1968 California primary, James Rogan had other things on his mind. "I remember being for McCarthy because the cute girl in class liked McCarthy," he said. The fifth-graders were following the Robert Kennedy-Eugene McCarthy showdown for a class project. Naturally, sides were taken and teasing ensued. To irk young James, a friend on the opposite side gave him a Kennedy campaign pin. That night, James stayed up late watching television and saw Kennedy speaking to supporters outside the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles.

Seeking a stronger political voice in Sacramento and Washington, D.C., Glendale City Council members voted Tuesday to hire a state lobbyist and enter into negotiations with a federal lobbyist in the hope of steering policy decisions and grant money the city's way. Discussion on the issue grew contentious, however, over which federal lobbyist to choose, and over concerns about applicants' previous clients. Glendale had kept Washington lobbyists on the payroll since 2003, but cut back on advocacy spending in 2011 and went without them last year amid city budget concerns and reduced federal funding opportunities.
