Eric Garcetti

L.A. City Council President

DW

There’s this cliché: You see the face of the world in L.A. Having grown up here, though, I see the face of L.A. in the world. Being from L.A. made me familiar with almost anywhere else. It prepared me for more than I imagined. A friend of mine says if you don’t like L.A. at any given moment, drive ten minutes and you will. I have an 18-month theory: If you last that long, you’ll never leave. But for the first 18 months, it’s very complicated. » Garcetti, 39, is the son of an Italian Mexican dad and a Russian Jewish mom.
