Eric Garcetti to be sworn in as new mayor of Los Angeles
By: Rob Hayes   |  Email: robhayes@abclocal.go.com

Eric Garcetti will be sworn in as Los Angeles' 42nd mayor Sunday afternoon.

The inauguration is expected to start at 6 p.m. on the Spring Street steps outside City Hall. Garcetti is slated to speak for about 10 minutes.

As part of his inauguration, Garcetti will hold a free public party in downtown's Grand Park. There will be carnival games and music from Moby. Comedian Jimmy Kimmel will act as the master of ceremonies. Garcetti's oath of office will be administered by Kenia Castillo, an eighth grader from Burbank.

Castillo first met Garcetti when she was 4 years old at an event rallying support for better working conditions for janitors, like her mother. Castillo later reunited with Gacetti during his mayoral campaign, and told him she would become a campaign volunteer because he had been there for her family in the past.

Also due to be sworn in are Ron Galperin as controller, Mike Feuer as city attorney and eight members of the City Council, including six newcomers.

The six new City Council members include Mitch O'Farrell, succeeding Garcetti in the 13th District, which stretches from Hollywood to Glassell Park, where O'Farrell lives; Curren Price, who is leaving his seat in the state Senate to replace Jan Perry in the Ninth District; Bob Blumenfield, succeeding Dennis Zine in the Third District in the West San Fernando Valley; Gil Cedillo, succeeding Ed Reyes as the new First District council member, representing Northeast Los Angeles; Felipe Fuentes, succeeding Richard Alarcon in the Seventh District in the Eastern San Fernando Valley; and Mike Bonin, succeeding Bill Rosendahl in representing the 11th District, which includes Brentwood, Pacific Palisades, Venice and Westchester.
