City Council President Says LA Lacks Job Creation Plan, Orders New Panel to Boost Employment

Setting the stage for scrutiny of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s record on job growth, City Council President Herb Wesson on Wednesday ordered the formation of a panel to look at boosting employment in the city.

Siding with complaints from local business groups, Wesson said in a speech on the Los Angeles City Council floor that L.A. lacks a job creation plan.

“You never have enough jobs,” Wesson said in a follow-up interview. “You can never have enough businesses, and that’s what I’m going to be focusing on.”
