SAG Member Eric Garcetti Will be The "Entertainment Industry" Mayor

He's already played the Mayor of Los Angeles on TV; and he's a SAG member. Wendy Gruel claims entertainment industry experience, however she was simply a lobbyist for DreamWorks where her primary work was getting approval for studio head David Geffen to build a seawall, one that was opposed by environmentalists and the staff of the California Coastal Commission, at his multi-million dollar Malibu home.

In the meantime, Eric Garcetti has brought the film industry back to his Hollywood district. He's also supported by several industry unions, groups, numerous celebrities such as Jimmy Kimmel (who brought network late-night TV back to Hollywood for the first time since Steve Allen in the 60s, all under Garcetti's watch), Salma Hayek, Will Ferrell and many others, as well as the Bring Hollywood Home foundation, an advocacy group to help production stay local.
