I thought Garcetti won the debate, certainly greuel had to do more to catch up to Garcetti.

Garcetti is up by 9 points according to the latest ABC poll:

Is the Greuel running out of time?

Garcetti has done a good job as city councilman. Greuel may have a conflict of interest trying to run for Mayor right after serving as the City Controller.

I was hoping they Panel would spend the whole hour asking G and G if they were totally familiar with Federal Rico Anti Organized Crime statutes? They both colluded with the Unions over the last decade in return for Union Campaign support which led to LA's impending complete fiscal collapse.

I don't know about all that, but I do see a clear difference in the appropriateness of the position as a stepping-stone to be Mayor. Garcetti has presided over the city counsel. Greuel could have run for another position before jumping into this race. She also could have agreed to the limits to campaign contributions from special interest groups towards independent PACs. She did not and that is just one of the handicaps caused by the lopsided funding she has received. She has taken a risk hy accepting the funding and with the attack ads they financed. Now Garcetti has the endorsements of all the other major vote-getters. I will be voting for Garcetti too, though overall I do not dislike Greuel.

As for your fiscal concerns, Garcetti has taken more heat from some public unions for hacking pension reform for new hires. A bold move in Los Angeles.

This is exciting. Which Union Gangster will L.A. elect? Which Union Gangster will preside over America's second largest City's Municipal Bankruptcy? Exciting times ahead for the most politically ignorant voting population in America!

I wish we could have a debate on the issues and
both Garcetti and Greuel would stop attacking
each other. I really need to know how the stand.
I agree with Garcetti though that Superpacs should
not deciside the election.Wendy Greuel should have
so many attack ads-should talk about city council
fraud and abuse.Eric Garcetti does not need to talk
about DWP endorcements so much in a debate-Stop it
both of you
