Garcetti makes history as next LA mayor

(CNN) - Eric Garcetti won the Los Angeles mayoral race, and will become the first Jewish mayor of the nation's second-largest city.

"Thank you Los Angeles - the hard work begins but I am honored to lead this city for the next four years," Garcetti, 42, wrote on Twitter on Wednesday morning. "Let's make this a great city again."

    What LA needs to do is just like NY, reduce corporate tax and give break to middle class tax breaks. Inflow business deals. By reducing your salaries at state levels you can do it. Watch all Attorneys that cheat, overcharge etc. price fix to these idiots. Nab tax cheats. Change legal system–it is flawed.

    That's a win for Hollywood. The film moguls will be dancing in the streets, as will the Dem socialists.
