Got a burning question for Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti?

Instead of flagging him down at a news conference or trying to buttonhole him in between meetings, Angelenos will have a chance Monday to grill him digitally.

Garcetti will field questions in real time via Facebook, one of several mayors who are doing online Q & As as part of an event hosted by The Atlantic magazine. The three-day CityLab conference, held in Los Angeles, aims to bring together mayors, urban experts and others to discuss innovative solutions for city problems.

The Los Angeles mayor has made headlines for plugging a minimum wage increase for L.A. and pledging to end veteran homelessness.
