Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti will need to win more than 50 percent of the vote in the March 7 primary to secure his reelection before the general election slated in May.

But before looking to the race ahead, we take a look back on the L.A. mayor’s first term: What has Garcetti accomplished for Angelenos? Has he delivered on his “back to basics” platform? How has the city changed - or not changed - under his governance and what does the mayor hope his first four years will be most remembered for?

Host Larry Mantle speaks to Garcetti about his tenure and how he’s currently tackling the city’s most prominent issues, including L.A.’s chronic and growing homeless population, the increase in Customs and Border Protection raids under the Trump administration, L.A.’s bid for the 2024 Summer Olympics and more.
