Eric Garcetti has won endorsements from City Council’s black members Bernard Parks, Jan Perry and Herb Wesson.
He has touched on issues that resonate with many black Angelenos, making references to crime and a debate over whether the park will be a stop on a future rail line.
Eric Garcetti spoke with KFWB’s Lisa Osborn and Phil Hulett:
Also, candidates Garcetti and Wendy Greuel prepared for a Thursday night debate — their first since the two emerged as finalists to be the next mayor of Los Angeles — by renewing their sniping over who would be most beholden to public employee unions.
Wednesday afternoon’s tit-for-tat came as Garcetti stood with the top three also-rans from the first round of voting last month who now support him for mayor, and as Greuel campaigned with school board member Monica Garcia.
