L.A. Mayor Made the Right Decision

La Opinin, Posted: Jun 24, 2009

LOS ANGELES -- Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa made the right decision to focus on his second term as mayor rather than run for governor of California, according to an editorial in La Opinin. Voters reelected him so that he would focus his attention on Los Angeles and its problems, editors write. His path to Sacramento became more complicated recently as a result of personal scandals that plagued Villaraigosa's image. The decision will likely come as a disappointment to many Latino voters who hoped that Villaraigosa would be Californias first Mexican-American governor. However, editors write, the city of Los Angeles needs the mayors undivided attention and leadership to address unemployment, homelessness, the budget crisis, and other problems.
