Los Angeles: Eric Garcetti Biden administration
“As the administration reached out to me about serving,” he said, “I let them know early this week that my city needs me now, and that I want to be here, and that I need to be here.”
Garcetti’s appointment to a Biden administration post wouldn’t have come without controversy.
