January 25, 2013

The California League of Conservation Voters (CLCV) is pleased to announce the endorsement of Los Angeles City Councilmember Eric Garcetti and Los Angeles City Controller Wendy Greuel for Mayor of Los Angeles.

The endorsement process conducted jointly with the Los Angeles League of Conservation Voters (LALCV) revealed Greuel and Garcetti to be the outstanding environmental choices to lead Los Angeles with the expiration of Mayor Villaraigosa’s term this spring. Both candidates share a vision of clean sustainable jobs as the key to a healthy, sustainable future for all of Los Angeles. CLCV believes the election of either Wendy Greuel or Eric Garcetti will ensure the continued improvement of Los Angeles’ public health, transportation infrastructure, sustainable economic progress and expansion of public parks.

The Los Angeles mayoral primary will be held March 5, 2013. If no candidate receives a majority, the top two finishers will advance to the May 21, 2013 general election. For more information on the election, visit the LA County Clerk’s website at

California Environmental Voters (formerly the California League of Conservation Voters) believes the climate crisis is here and this moment requires transformative change. California has the policy solutions to stop climate change but lacks the political will to do it at the rate and scale that’s necessary. EnviroVoters exists to build the political power to solve the climate crisis, advance justice, and create a roadmap for global action. We organize voters, elect and train candidates, and hold lawmakers accountable for bold policy change. We won’t stop until we have resilient, healthy, thriving communities, and a democracy and economy that is just and sustainable for all. Join us at and on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
