Former Ventura County What⁉️

In an article in the Thousand Oaks Acorn, Jeff Gorell is described as "a former state Assembly member and Ventura County prosecutor."
This is a bit misleading.
Jeff Gorell was Deputy Mayor for the City of Los Angeles for more than six years, a position he held until January of this year. He is currently on a leave of absence from his current position with the Port of Los Angeles according to his LinkedIn page.

While it is true that Gorell served in the State Assembly from 2010 until he lost in 2014, and he was a Deputy District Attorney from 1999-2006, it's a noteworthy omission to leave out the job he had from 2015-2022 advising Mayor Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles.
Maybe the omission was accidental; maybe it served to emphasize Gorell's connection with Ventura County during two separate stints a while back. Feels weird.
Abe says: "What's wrong with saying Jeff Gorell was the Deputy Mayor of Los Angeles until this year?"
