Which Way LA under Mayor Villaraigosa?

Hosted by

While his campaign platform was built on embracing all the diversity of Los Angeles, in the 48 hours since Councilman Antonio Villaraigosa became the Mayor-elect, the air has been filled with Latino buzz phrases: "The first Latino mayor in 133 years"..."mayor of the second largest city in the US, now a Latino." Will Antonio Villaraigosa focus on Latino neighborhoods and issues or become the coalition-builder he touted himself as throughout his campaign? With six weeks to go before he moves into City Hall, Guest host Diana Nyad joins veteran LA Times City Editor Bill Boyarsky, business advocates, political scientists and students of Southern California for a look at what lays ahead for Mayor-elect Antonio Villaraigosa and the City of Los Angel
