Eric Garcetti Announces Mayoral Run

Los Angeles City Council President Eric Garcetti, who represents the Hollywood area, has thrown his hat into the ring and is running for mayor of Los Angeles. The field of contenders is bound to be a crowded one, well before the 2013 election, but candidates are getting an early start in establishing themselves and raising money. Garcetti already has strong ties to Hollywood (the industry) and even has done a series of cameos on “The Closer” in which he played the mayor of Los Angeles.

“I made it official this morning and took out papers to run for Mayor,” he wrote on Facebook. “I love LA–the best city in the world–and it is time for focused leadership, innovation, and a vision to inspire this city. I hope to earn your support as we approach Election Day. Together, let’s put LA back on top.”

Also in the race: Wendy Gruel and Jan Perry.
