Councilman Garcetti taps the Eastside for support and $1,000 contributions

Councilman and mayoral candidate Eric Garcetti announced earlier this week that he had raised about $1 million in campaign contribution. The long list of contributors include celebrities – Jake Gyllenhaal  and Jamie Lee Curtis- and power brokers, Eli Broad. Garcetti, whose 13th Council District includes Echo Park and Silver Lake as well as Atwater and Glassell Park, was also able to attract numerous contributions from the Eastside, including more than two dozen people and companies who plunked down the $1,000 maximum.

The $1,000 Eastside contributors included Silver Lake restaurant and bar owners, the head of an Echo Park social service agency, a documentary filmmaker, the wife of artist Shepard Fairey and the founder of the L.A. Derby Dolls.  Of course, Garcetti and his wife were among the $1,000 contributors to his campaign.  With the election more than a year away, expect more contributions – and campaign sales pitches – in the months ahead.

  1. I visited the three-acre parcel at Allesandro and El Moran. Such unnecessary(and possible illegal?) destruction. A few residents briefed me on its history, and you will not be receiving any campaign contributions or endorsements from this group or from me….. NADA!!!!!!!
