There's a race on for Mayor of Los Angeles. The City Council is considering 22 specific proposals to save money and make up a deficit now estimated at $150 to $160 million. In addition to all that, Council President Herb Wesson has asked for another study. A twelve-member, independent group will come up with ways the city can "grow the economy and jobs, attract business investment and industry, and create fiscal stability for the city." That's how it's described by LA lawyer and former US Secretary of Commerce Mickey Kantor, who will head the so-called "2020 Commission."
