Eric Garcetti for Mayor of Los Angeles

Last night I had the opportunity to listen to Eric Garcetti speak about his vision for Los Angeles and why he seeks to be the city's next Mayor.  He is a very impressive man.   I've lived 12 years of my life in Manhattan and 7 years in Los Angeles.  I view LA and NYC as equally great cities. If Manhattan has Mike Bloomberg, then we need someone of equal caliber.  While Garcetti may not have Bloomberg's private wealth, he matches Mayor Bloomberg's pragmatic style of leadership and attention to key details to maintain and improve quality of life for all residents.   Over the years, I've had the opportunity to listen to many eloquent speakers.  I was struck by Eric's style and substance.  In this blog, I have never endorsed anybody or anything (except for my Climatopolis book and that needed some marketing push).   Garcetti for Mayor!
