• Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa

    After eight years leading California’s largest city, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will leave office in just a few months. When a major political figure exits one of the most important offices in the country, that person has a unique perspective that can’t be matched.

    The national Democratic figure and former Assembly Speaker was our featured guest at the Sacramento Press Club’s luncheon on April 16. Mayor Villaraigosa discussed education, immigration and his plans for after he leaves office. Scroll down for pictures from this event. Pictures from previous events here.

    Many people attending the luncheon gave their Twitter followers updates as Mayor Villaraigosa was speaking. Here’s a few of their Tweets:
