Who needs the LA Times California Section when Eric Garcetti can spread the news

The Councilman and Echo Park resident launched a “Save the California” section page on Facebook. But Garcetti does a pretty good job keeping his followers and fans on Facebook and Twitter informed on local breaking news. Yesterday, Garcetti, as noted in Defamer, warned about a street closure in Hollywood:

“Eric suggests you avoid Sunset Blvd in Hollywood for a while. Suspicious package at Bernstein High has area closed down. On scene 31 minutes ago.”

On Saturday, he Twittered about the attendance at a Glassell Park health fair:

“Glassell Park Health Fair at Juntos Park draws hundreds. King Drill Team and free USC Dentistry checkups are big hits.

Last Wednesday, he posted an on-the-run restaurant review:

“Yum yum banana pudding from Delilah Bakery. Now what to eat for dinner before heading back to work?

Ok. Maybe that was more news than I needed to know.
