Joining a small but influential list of backers, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti endorsed John Duran on Wednesday to replace the retiring Zev Yaroslavsky on the Board of Supervisors.
Garcetti is the highest-profile elected official to back Duran’s come-from-behind run, calling the West Hollywood council member and former mayor an “innovative and thoughtful problem solver.”
“John isn’t afraid to make the tough choices, and as our next Supervisor, we can count on him to be a watchdog over county government by ensuring we are getting the most from our tax dollars,” Garcetti said in a statement.
Duran has served on the West Hollywood council for 14 years as it transitioned from a gritty, new municipality of 37,000 to a haven of boutiques, trendy restaurants and improving civic services.
