What Has Antonio Villaraigosa Done for Los Angeles Lately?

Hosted by

The Mayor of Los Angeles has less than a year and a half until he's "termed out" of office. Antonio Villaraigosa's first term was marred by personal troubles and rejection of his education proposals, but he easily won re-election. Critics say his attention is now focused not so much on LA as it is on Washington, now that he's President of the US Conference of Mayors and Chair of the upcoming Democratic National Convention.  He's in Washington today, pushing for transportation bills in the House and the Senate, which include his plan called, "America Fast Forward."
