Eric and Amy Garcetti

Eric Garcetti is the 42nd Mayor of the City of Los Angeles. His focus is job creation and solving everyday problems for L.A. residents. He brings a track record of proven results in the neighborhoods he represented on City Council and citywide.

Prior to being elected Mayor, Eric was elected four times by his peers to serve as President of the Los Angeles City Council from 2006 to 2012. He served as the Councilmember representing the 13th District, which the L.A. chamber of commerce ranked as the number one in job growth. During the race, Eric was endorsed by the L.A. Times, which called him "the best choice for Mayor" and wrote that "Voters should be inspired by Garcetti's stewardship of Council District 13" and that "As council president, he worked behind the scenes to awaken his colleagues to the depth of the city's financial crisis and to take action they did not want to take."

Eric was raised in the San Fernando Valley and earned his B.A. and M.A. from Columbia University. He studied as a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford and the London School of Economics and taught at Occidental College and U.S.C. A fourth generation Angeleno, Eric lives in Silver Lake with his wife and one-year-old daughter. He is a Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy reserve and is an avid jazz pianist and photographer.
