Council President Herb Wesson Taps Mickey Kantor To Study L.A.'s Budget Woes
In the wake of the failure of a half-cent sales tax increase, L.A. City Council President Herb Wesson has recruited Mickey Kantor, the former U.S. Commerce Secretary, to head up a commission to examine L.A.'s troubled finances.
"Council President Wesson's approach is refreshing," Greuel said. "I am proud to already have earned the support of a diverse coalition of business and labor leaders and look forward to working with the Commission as Mayor to get our fiscal house in order and bring businesses back to Los Angeles."
