Russo Admits That He’s Thought About Resigning

Oakland City Attorney John Russo acknowledged in an interview today that he has considered resigning from office, although he said he has no immediate plans to do so. He also adamantly denied a published report that he’s thinking about running for state Assembly. He said flatly that he will not. But he acknowledged that he does have at least one other job in mind at some point in the future. In fact, last year he joined a legal mediation service company and has been advertising himself as a mediator to be hired at $400 an hour.
