To the editor: L.A. Mayor
If so, then shame on our mayor.
I have been a supporter of Garcetti because I believed him to be a leader who vigorously represents the interests of Los Angeles. However, here he fell woefully short. I would be a lot more proud of him if he gave 100% effort and came up short rather than giving only a halfhearted effort because he was concerned about how not winning the bid might reduce his political capital.
As far as I am concerned, Garcetti's low-key efforts have hurt him much more politically than if he had given this his all, as Boston's mayor did. I want a mayor who gives his all for our city.
