On Monday, October 21, the Crawford Family Forum hosts Los Angeles mayor, Eric Garcetti in conversation with KPCC’s political correspondent Frank Stoltze. Mayor Garcetti will discuss the progress he has made in his first 100 days as mayor as well as what he is still working to accomplish in his term.
Eric Garcetti has bold plans to ensure that Los Angeles is counted among the world’s great cities of the 21st century. Vital to his plans are to encourage businesses and citizens to harness the power of the sun to create electricity, to create 20,000 local, clean energy jobs, to keep the filming industry here in Los Angeles, and to fix the broken pension system.
Already, there has been a change in tone in the Mayor’s Office, as Garcetti has opened the doors to his office to hold ‘office hours,’ just as he did while on the Los Angeles City Council. He has made an effort to personally answer phone calls to L.A.’s 211 help line, and sought to maintain a close connection with the city which he calls home. At this installment of the Crawford Family Forum he will again interface directly with the public about issues that Southern Californians care about.
This event is free and open to the public. However, reservations are required, and can be made here.
Also coming up at KPCC’s Crawford Family forum is the next installment of NEXT: People Science Tomorrow. On Tuesday, October 22, science journalist Mat Kaplan, of the Planetary Society, will sit down with Andrew Hessel, Keith Murphy, and Dr. Shaochen Chen to discuss the future of biological 3D printing.
