Time for City Hall Pass, your ticket to all the latest news out of our halls of government with KPCC's Frank Stoltze and Alice Walton.

It's been more than a week since the election. Now that the dust has settled, we have a new mayor elect in Eric Garcetti who will take office July first. But what is he up to in the meantime?

What does Garcetti's election means for some of the different interests in the city? Who are the winners and losers here?

We've still got some time before Garcetti takes office, but in the meantime, business continues at City Hall. Last week the City Council approved a $7.7-billion budget.

LA politician Bob Hertzberg, who was once the speaker of the Assembly, has been out of politics for the last decade. Now he's running for Alex Padilla's state senate seat.
