City Councilman Eric Garcetti is the next mayor of Los Angeles, beating City Controller Wendy Greuel by 54 percent to 46 percent.

That’s pretty much exactly how the Center for the Study of Los Angeles at Loyola Marymount University called it last night at 8 pm, just as polls closed. Among their findings – Garcetti won 63 percent of the Latino vote, and 54 percent of the Asian vote, while Greuel won 71 percent of the African American vote. Garcetti also won 65 percent of the Republican vote, aided by the endorsement of his primary opponent, Kevin James.

Fernando Guerra directs the center and joined KCRW’s Steve Chiotakis for post-election analysis.

As Greuel leaves her post as City Controller, that means that comes July 1st, there’ll be no women in office in LA City Hall. Steve also spoke to Rachel Michelin, executive director of California Women Lead, about why there are so few women in LA politics, and why women voters were split 50/50 between Garcetti and Greuel.

    Part of the Balearic archipelago which also has the islands of Minorca and Ibiza among its components, yacht charter Mallorca is by far the largest and the most popular, because of its fine weather, the beaches and recently, the infrastructure.

    I like these women outfits! I think that women should present themselves with pride in themselves. This implies dressing appropriately for the occasion, your body type, and your age. So use the latest trends in your advantage, accessorize your outfits and put some perfume on your body. I personally like a specific perfume and you can check out <a href="” target=”_blank”> to see what I am talking about.
