Los Angeles voters on Tuesday will declare what kind of city they want to live in.
They will support or reject Measure S, a sweeping ballot measure that applies the brakes on certain types of large-scale development.
It’s exactly the kind of development backed by Mayor Eric Garcetti, who says such projects are needed to keep Los Angeles growing.
That same electorate will also make its views known about Garcetti, who faces little serious competition in his bid to win a second term. A wide margin of victory would give the 46-year-old mayor momentum should he seek higher office in the coming years.
