Port of Los Angeles can only hire one of two chosen PR firms
In June, we reported that the Port of Los Angeles awarded two, three-year contracts to The Rogers Group, for $750,000, and Hill & Knowlton, for $600,000. The contracts were subject to the approval of LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, after former Mayor James Hahn banned city agencies from hiring private PR firms. The LA Daily News reported on July 31 that Mayor Villaraigosa has made a decision about the PR firms, telling the Port that it is only able to hire one PR firm. We’ll continue to update this story, so stay tuned.
