• Conversation with LA Mayor Eric Garcetti and The Sacramento Bee’s Amy Chance

    On October 10th, the Sacramento Press Club held a conversation with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Sacramento Bee Political Editor Amy Chance.

    Eric Garcetti won his second term as the 42nd mayor of Los Angeles in March 2017. He just landed the 2028 Olympics for Los Angeles, with plans to use the Olympics to boost the city’s economy and infrastructure. He’s focused on protecting the city’s sanctuary status in opposition to the Trump Administration’s efforts to withhold funds, and is working to speed housing construction and address homelessness. Garcetti also has garnered attention for his record-setting, behested payments from individuals and businesses to a charity he created. And what about that trip to New Hampshire in August to support a mayoral candidate in Manchester?

    Garcetti served as a member and president of the Los Angeles City Council from 2001 to 2012 before he was first elected mayor. He was raised in the San Fernando Valley and earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Columbia University. He is also a Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy Reserve.

    Amy Chance, political editor for The Sacramento Bee, has covered California politics and government for more than 25 years. She supervises a staff of reporters and editors who cover the state Legislature, the Brown Administration, ballot measures and state political campaigns. Chance joined The Bee as its City Hall reporter in 1984, moving two years later to the Capitol Bureau to cover the second term of Gov. George Deukmejian. Since then, she has reported on most of the state’s major political figures, from U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein to former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. She currently oversees Capitol coverage across multiple platforms, including the popular Capitol Alert blog.
