The Mayor Will See You Now: How to Book an Appointment During Eric Garcetti’s Office Hours


Redecorating the mayoral suite can wait; on his first day in office, Eric Garcetti is fulfilling his campaign promise to “listen, then lead” by holding the first public office hours at his new City Hall office this afternoon from 2 to 5 p.m. Interested in stopping in? Email [email protected] to book a meeting; if there are not enough appointments available for everyone who emails, meetings will be booked at random. Garcetti announced the opportunity for one-on-one time with a city official via his Facebook page on Friday morning, then used his inauguration speech Sunday evening to encourage Angelenos to drop by. “I won’t be a perfect mayor,” he told the crowd gathered in Grand Park, “but I will be the mayor of a great city… let’s get to work to build the city of our dreams.”
