L.A. Council President Herb Wesson today officially unveiled a new “L.A. 2020” Commission tasked with wading through L.A.'s finances and developing some recommendations to keep the city out of bankruptcy court.
“I'm telling you and you can rest assured that when you go talk to the mayor, whoever that is, you better come talk to me, because I'm going to be an equal partner, the council will be,” Wesson said, according to the Downtown News. “We're not going to be a junior partner.”
