Councilman Joel Wachs; Parks Commissioner Steve Soboroff; Assemblyman Antonio Villaraigosa, D-Los Angeles; and Rep. Xavier Becerra, D-Los Angeles, said urban and environmental issues would be among their top priorities. Los Angeles should resemble an environmental workshop, with official efforts to turn the city green.
