Last quote by Eric Garcetti

L.A. said loud and clear we need to build more housing, we need to build more affordable housing and we need to build more housing for the homeless. But that shouldn't be interpreted as a blank check for any project. As you are seeing with this project, people always have strong

Aug 01 2017 - Olympic Games

We're a city that has always been a Games-changer and again will be in

Jul 31 2017 - Olympic Games

On my first day as mayor, I wrote, as my first act, a letter to USA Olympic Committee to saying that we wanted to bring the Olympics back. That day we have begun a remarkable journey. In sports term there is no other metaphor: it was a

Jul 31 2017 - Olympic Games

This is an historic day for Los Angeles, for the United States, and for the Olympic and Paralympic movements around the world. Today, we take a major step toward bringing the Games back to our city for the first time in a generation and begin a new chapter in Los Angeles's timeless Olympic story. This agreement with the IOC will allow us to seed a legacy of hope and opportunity that will lift up every community in Los Angeles–not in 11 years' time, but starting now. Will kick-start our drive to make L.A. the healthiest city in

I have full confidence that we will get

Jul 11 2017 - Olympic Games

Both of us will find it more and more difficult to convince cities – whether it's Paris, Los Angeles or other American cities – to really go into this process if one of us gets turned

We look forward to working together maybe not in competition but collaboration with

Jun 26 2017 - Trump Presidency

There is no question that the federal withdrawal of national leadership is a step backward. But before Paris and after the withdrawal from Paris, most of the local action has taken place at the mayoral

Jun 19 2017 - Tesla

And like many other cities have, I'd love to see, maybe with the new tunneling technology people like Elon Musk is looking at whether we can have a quick and direct route from LAX to Union

Jun 16 2017

We all spent so many hours in front of the TV, the same Bat-time, the same Bat-channel. And there have been a lot of people who have been Batman: Michael Keaton, George Clooney, Christian Bale, Ben Affleck. They've all had their time in the cape and the cowl. But did anyone have more fun than Adam West?feedback

Jun 16 2017

Like you, we all spent many hours in front of the TV, same bat time, same bat channel. Adam West taught us each one of us had a heart of gold. There will never be another Batman like Adam West and there will never be another Adam

Jun 16 2017

Batman may hail from Gotham, but to us, he's a true Angeleno. The TV show starring Adam West was filmed almost entirely in and around Los Angeles – and I know I speak for generations of Angelenos when I say that growing up would not have been the same without the Caped

Jun 16 2017

There will never be a Batman like Adam West – and there will never be another Adam

Jun 06 2017 - Terrorism

Jun 01 2017 - Olympic Games

My dream is not so much just to bring the Olympics here, but is to bring youth sports for free to every zip

May 19 2017 - Trump Presidency

We're obsessed with what's happening here, and a lot of American people are worried about that. But if you're out of a job or struggling with debt, you've got more primary concerns than even all of the drama here in Washington. And if nobody is speaking to it, besides this president, you're going to stick with him. You just are. Even through this

May 12 2017

Any city would have to look at the terms if the rules change, what a 2028 award means. We'll listen if the rules

May 12 2017 - Olympic Games

But I'd love to go to Paris in 2028 and see my friends; I think it would be great

May 12 2017 - Olympic Games

On the logistics side there were a lot of 'WOW' moments. The Olympics asked us not to buff the city up. This is Hollywood. We could have had the best show, the cutest kids lining the streets, we could have had the most amazing fireworks, but we didn't change a single thing. We didn't go out of our way to show a city that's any different than the city we

May 12 2017 - Olympic Games

Clearly we want 2024 and Paris wants 2024. Both of us look at 2028 as a long time

May 12 2017 - Olympic Games

Los Angeles is one of the few places in the nation and the world that can pull off an Olympics that is fiscally responsible and that is ready to go whenever we get the green light. We do big events here every year all the time. It's kind of second nature to

May 11 2017 - Olympic Games

An Olympic win is an Olympic

Apr 11 2017

People entrust and elect leaders to take some risks and to be big and bold about the projects we

Apr 11 2017

That's L.A.'s biggest and most exciting challenge: How do you harness the momentum, the investment and even the disruption in a way that still addresses social needs? We're writing the rules as we go. We need to get with

Apr 04 2017

It may feel good to take certain actions, but that could result in real hurt on the ground. My responsibility is to make sure that I bring resources back to my city that come from tax dollars we send to Washington. To shut off communication would hand a double victory to the people who want to take our money and tell us we have to share their

Apr 04 2017

The civil right movement was not won by calling Bull Connor a racist. He was a racist. But it was won by saying we should be at that lunch

Mar 31 2017 - Immigration

DOJ can give some opinions, but it's not primarily in their jurisdiction. So I know Senator Sessions has been very engaged, interested and involved in this area, but is he empowered by this administration beyond his formal responsibilities?feedback

Mar 07 2017 - Immigration

Decriminalizing street vending is a humane, critical first step toward protecting hard-working Angelenos who are trying to make an honest living and should not have to worry about a criminal

Mar 01 2017

As anyone who has seen 'La La Land' can tell you, dreams do still come true here in Los

Feb 26 2017 - Democratic Party

Tom has an instinctive ability to be a dealmaker and consensus builder. He's a really likable person. So this is not an election in which retribution is going to be elected against people who did support

Jan 27 2017 - Snapchat

Folks will have the capital now to spin off from Snap their own ideas and their own companies. And it will be that anchor that shows that for a long time the buzz about LA was 'you start a company here, get acquired,' instead of starting a company that would really become a pillar and become that linchpin for future activity. That will be an amazing day for LA. In fact I talked to a recent startup CEO here in downtown LA. He said I have two engineers that recently graduated from USC. They turned down Harvard and MIT because they said 'LA's where it's at.'.feedback

Jan 27 2017 - Snapchat

MySpace, while it never had the success that folks thought it would, spawned a whole generation of entrepreneurs who started their companies and used the knowledge that they gained and the network that they had to start other

Jan 27 2017 - Snapchat

I should probably Snap this whole thing, but my political advisor said don't wear these during the

Jan 27 2017 - Immigration

We just require that there be a constitutional court warrant, that we don't pull somebody over by the way that they look or ask their immigration status when they come to be a witness in a crime. We wanted to fix a large system that he also acknowledged was broken. So there's room for common ground. But it's really a non-ideological issue. Here in LA 61% of our new businesses on our main streets are started by immigrants … I think as long as we tell those stories about why our boom is linked to immigrants, we can change hearts and

Jan 27 2017 - Unemployment

I think we're on very secure ground as the US Constitution says you can't put a federal financial gun to the heads of states and tell them what to do in exchange for funding. We also feel that the ethical argument and the practical argument are on our side. In these cities that are open to more immigrants we have lower crime rates, we have more economic prosperity, lower unemployment rates, so we feel like this will holdup in

Jan 27 2017

One out of every nine jobs depends on the port of Los Angeles and the port of Long Beach here in the LA region,. I'm not going to back off the beliefs I have and that this city holds and embodies. But instead of seeking to divide a very strong social fabric here we're going to continue to unite it, and hopefully we can welcome the president in doing that in the

Jan 26 2017 - Immigration

That is for everyone's good, because trust between police and the people they serve is absolutely essential to effective law enforcement. Our department policy clearly states that our deputies do not ask for one's immigration status. Immigration enforcement remains a federal

Jan 26 2017

I just spoke with mayors around this country in the last hour who called me from other places… Every single day we work together with our federal law enforcement officials, every single day we work to make sure that we have safe streets in our communities. There's a caricature that somehow we've opened up cities of America and said please to foreign criminals to come here but nothing could be further from the truth. It's not what this police chief stands for and it's not what I stand for as

Jan 25 2017 - Olympic Games

In today's political landscape, I don't need to tell you that finding common ground isn't always easy, but there is common ground here

I trust the professionals that are dealing with this. You can never erase the threat to zero, but I want to make sure that people know we have a system that can and will respond forcefully whenever there are these

Dec 15 2015

We are here because our first job is to ensure the people are safe in the city. It is very easy for people to jump to conclusions and I have been around long enough to know that usually what people think in the first few hours is not necessarily how it plays out in later hours. We will continue to hope that this is nothing and that our children can be back at school
