LA Mayor Eric Garcetti was the guest of honor at a reception in DC this week attended by members of the Southern California Congressional delegation.
Part of L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti's whirlwind trip to Washington this week included a reception for him attended by members of Southern California's Congressional delegation.
Co-hosts for the reception were House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, along with Reps. Xavier Becerra and Karen Bass. No big surprises there, other than the fact that Pelosi endorsed Garcetti's opponent, Wendy Greuel, in the mayoral election — as did attendees Janice Hahn, Brad Sherman and Tony Cardenas (he's a former city council colleague of Garcetti's).
Note in the photo that Hahn and Cardenas are standing directly to the left of the mayor. What's that adage? Keep your friends close and your enemies closer? Make that "frenemies."
