Mendelson: Atty. Gen. should be elected
Council member Phil Mendelson (D-At Large) is proposing to require an election of the city's attorney general, a measure that will get its first airing Tuesday.
The legislation, which would create a four-year term for the city's chief lawyer, comes amid concerns that Attorney General Peter Nickles has acted more on behalf of the mayor than the public. Nickles, former general counsel to Mayor Adrian M. Fenty, is a family friend of Fenty.
