Mr. Garcetti knows very well the demographic shift of his city and the negative impact it has had on wages in the construction trades. His lax enforcement of illegal immigration endangers the health and safety of many residents. He also has embraced a program that impounds landlord rents based on complaints that often are unverified and has enriched a bureaucracy riddled with corruption and conflicts of interest. In short, he is despised by private property advocates and has yet to make any lasting impacts in a city that is gridlocked by the sheer density of vehicles in circulation.
