Intergovernmental and Communications Officer
City of Riverside to Name Gary Geuss City Attorney
Veteran of Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office Scheduled to Start April 13
RIVERSIDE, Calif. –Gary Geuss, a 26 year veteran of the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office who supervises legal operations for some of that city’s largest departments, including the Port of Los Angeles, Los Angeles International Airport and the Department of Water and Power, has been named City Attorney in Riverside.
The Riverside City Council, which selected Geuss from six finalists, is scheduled to approve a contract with him at a City Council meeting on Tuesday. Geuss will be introduced to the community at 2 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, 3900 Main St. He is scheduled to start in Riverside on April 13.
“Gary Geuss brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from his post in Los Angeles, where he has worked his way up through the ranks during a distinguished career in municipal law,” Mayor Rusty Bailey said. “His weighty responsibilities there demonstrate the level of confidence Los Angeles has placed in him, which speaks volumes about why he is the right person for Riverside.”
Geuss will assume supervision of the Riverside City Attorney’s Office, which includes 23 people, of which 12 are attorneys. The Office has been led most recently by Interim City Attorney Kristi Smith, who has been a Supervising Deputy City Attorney, the second highest position in the office, since 2006.
“The Riverside City Attorney’s Office enjoys an excellent reputation in the legal community, and I am excited about the opportunity to lead such a fine organization,” said Geuss, a 15 year associate with the American Board of Trial Advocates.
Geuss (pronounced Gice) received his B.A. in political science from California State University Northridge and his Juris Doctor from Southwestern School of Law in Los Angeles. After working as a litigation associate at a Los Angeles firm and as an arbitrator, he joined the Los Angeles City
Attorney’s Office in 1989. Geuss has handled the legal affairs of a wide variety of city departments and advised a number of high profile boards and commissions with oversight of various facets of Los Angeles city government. He worked in the criminal branch and civil liability division as a Deputy City Attorney before becoming a Senior Assistant City Attorney, Civil Litigation; Chief Assistant City Attorney, Civil Liability Management; then Branch Chief, Proprietary and Risk Management since 2013.
His salary will be $265,000.
Remember, Priamos comes from a family of scheisters. From his days of allegedly running numbers at USC, to his best work of deceiving the public and elects with the City of Riverside, now seasoned, doing work for Riverside County. But many say his days are numbered, as his number running days.
In a January 08, 1991 Los Angeles times article Priamos says he did not give Gathers money when he was at USC, but that his twin sons, Chris and Greg Priamos, did, and that Gathers paid them back. Priamos said he was told by Morrison that he could buy meals for Kimble and Gathers occasionally, but that his “interpretation of occasional was different,” he said. Priamos had a history of not revealing public records, and further, the public found he was utilizing outside legal services without a contract. If you can deal with this and make it right for the taxpayers, you have my support
SO WHAT ABOUT THOSE TROLLEY’S, WELL MAYOR BAILEY IS STILL THINKING ABOUT THEM ..MAYBE DREAMING ABOUT THEM.. People and residents in the community are beginning to question the cognitive thought processes of our elects, such as Mayor Rust Bailey and Ward 1 Mike Gardner. With the big success story (just kidding) of reducing Brockton Avenue from two lanes to one for vehicles, and the other completely dedicated for bicycles. Of course as we all know, this decision has caused chaos and increase traffic not only on Brockton Avenue but on Magnolia Avenue, and now a $500 million dollar trolley on Magnolia Avenue? Yep, that’s the thinking. The reality, is that the City of Riverside has no money, but we will continue to toss the burden to our grand kids.
