Public Workers, Public Transit and the Mayor of Los Angeles

Hosted by

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa delivered an upbeat State of the City speech last night, emphasizing pubic transportation and his plan to speed up construction projects by extending a one-half cent sales tax rather than letting it sunset as Measure R now provides. Today, he reportedly stormed out of a Metro board meeting when County Supervisor Mike Antonovich called that a "gang rape" of communities that are not being consulted as they were leading up to the passage of Measure R.
