The Gentrifier

Eric Garcetti is positioning himself as something of the gentrification candidate in the mayoral race: "Hollywood's revitalization has become a campaign platform for Garcetti ? Property values are up and crime is down in Hollywood, Garcetti repeatedly tells crowds." And his district is full of "other neighborhoods that have flourished ... including Echo Park, Filipinotown and Glassell Park." He says that "Every neighborhood is different ... I understand that you have to listen to neighborhoods, to what they want." [LADN]
