Mayor Jim Lane Names Tim LaSota Chief of Staff

We’d like to congratulate Tim LaSota on his new position as Chief of Staff for incoming Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane. LaSota is the former Special Assistant to Maricopa County Andrew Thomas.

Laurie Roberts says in her blog that he could be one to watch, but she clearly doesn’t know Tim. He is a behind-the-scenes guy who was responsible for some of the most brilliant maneuvers coming out of the County Attorney’s Office. No one will ever find out what he does. We couldn’t even find a picture of him on the web. The Karl Rove of Arizona politics. Good luck Tim.

Tim LaSota: Incoming Mayor Jim Lane is bringing fresh blood into the top echelons of city government, hiring the son of former Attorney General Jack LaSota as his chief of staff. LaSota, 34, is a Phoenix attorney who since 2005 has worked as a special assistant deputy to Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas. (Translation: lobbyist.) People have long been asking who Lane’s closest advisors will be. Now we know.

  1. Tim is a mastermind at campaign strategy. He is a big part of the reason ACLU Tim Nelson lost to Thomas. Remember the Ceja flyer? http://sonoranalliance.com/?p=3259 He will be greatly missed.
