Has Google already selected a successor for Councilman Eric Garcetti?

How else to explain why a Google search of “Council District 13”  results in a link to “Eric Garcetti-13th District City Council” and a large photo of someone who is not Garcetti.  The person in the photo looks like Garcetti staffer  Oliver Delgado.

This could explain why Garcetti, who is termed out of office and running for mayor,  has not endorsed  either of the two candidates seeking to replace him in the May 21 election.

    As a long-time Echo Park denizen who also happens to work for Google, I can guarantee you that Google is not meddling in the 13th District council race, not least because I’m probably the only employee who lives in the district or cares about it. Not sure how associating a photo of a random dude who isn’t running for office to this search result would impact the Council race anyhow.

    It’s likely just an error in associating a photo to the Field Office area of interest item.
