Former Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa slammed the current city administration in an interview on Sunday with NBC Los Angeles, suggesting that Mayor Eric Garcetti — recently tapped to become U.S. ambassador to India — had failed.
In what appeared to be a stinging critique of his successor, former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa called the city he once lead “rudderless” and “adrift.”
“I was born and raised here,” Villaraigosa said Sunday on NBC4’s NewsConference. “I have lived here my entire life. I have never seen this town so dirty, I’ve never seen crime go up so quickly… the spread of homelessness… I think there is a lack of clear leadership in this town.”
When pressed, the 41st Mayor of Los Angeles said his criticism wasn’t entirely about Mayor Eric Garcetti, nor did he blame the current mayor for leaving office early to take a job in the Biden administration. Nevertheless, he argued that there was a “lack of leadership” coming from city hall which he hears “all over this town.”

Gee, ya think Mr. Wizard?
Tony the lil Tiger Villar ?
No worries, Villaraigosa, it was also a $hithole when you were in charge.
I’d blame it on the Republicans ...
Hey Tony Villar, have you filled those million potholes yet?
I was there during Riordan’s time and it was pretty decent in the 1990s.
It’s what Democrats do..........................
Los Angeles simply looks like the city that it is...
When you are a one party dictatorship, eventually all you have left to blame is your Comrades.
Understatement of the year.
So Tony Reconquista is a conservative now?
Trying to beat out San Fran for dirtiest city. The competition is fierce.
Every time you see a camp of immigrants ready to enter, think of this situation already here that is not being addressed.
Tony Villar was incompetent before Garcetti took that position and added indolence.
If he thinks it’s dirty now, wait a couple of years.
The Democrat Party Organized Crime Syndicate is doing just fine.
At least Vman filled da potholes.. Garcetti digs’em deeper.
India is not known for cleanliness.... so he should feel at home.
You habitually import the third world into your city, your city eventually becomes third world.
