America's Urban Agenda -- From California
A generation ago, pundits, professors, politicians, and policymakers debated what to do about the "urban crisis." Today the discussion is about the metropolitan predicament. The terms have evolved because our urban areas have been transformed. At the dawn of the 21st century, most Americans live in suburbs. But they have not exactly left the cities behind. Antonio Villaraigosa is in his third and final term as a member of the California State Assembly, serving the 45th Assembly District in Los Angeles from 1994 to 2000. In January 1998 he was elected Speaker of the Assembly and served until April 2000.
