STUDIO CITY -- Eric Garcetti today announced the powerful endorsement of Teamsters Joint Council 42.

"This is an important endorsement of my campaign to launch L.A. forward by creating jobs, driving innovation at City Hall and making government work for people and businesses alike," Garcetti said. "I am honored to have the support of Teamsters Joint Council 42."

Teamsters Joint Council 42 is the parent body to 22 Teamster local unions and 200,000 working Teamsters and retirees. It is the largest Joint Council in the entire International Brotherhood of Teamsters.

The endorsement comes on the heels of Garcetti's endorsements last week from Northeast L.A. Councilmember Ed Reyes and the Democratic Party of the San Fernando Valley, which operated the state's largest Democratic campaign office during the last election.

In addition, last week the first credible independent poll of the Mayor's race was released, and it showed Eric on top of the field in this dead heat race.  The poll, conducted by LMU, shows Garcetti leading with 36%, Wendy Greuel with 32%, Jan Perry with 15%, and Kevin James with 8%.

Garcetti has also earned the endorsement of the Communications Workers of America, Southern California Council; the Engineers and Architects Association; the Latino Coalition of Los Angeles - PAC; Mexican American Bar Association President Rigoberto Arrechiga; Newark Mayor Cory Booker; former Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante; education advocate Sal Castro; Latino Business Chamber of Greater Los Angeles chairman and CEO Jorge Corralejo; former Governor and DNC Chair Howard Dean; California Democratic Party vice chair Alex Gallardo-Rooker and CA Supreme Court Justice Carlos Moreno (ret.).
