Former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will visit four businesses on Cesar Chavez Avenue in Boyle Heights Friday and participate in a small business roundtable, 11 days before the gubernatorial primary.
Villaraigosa told City News Service he is running for governor because “we need a leader focused every single day on growing our economy and creating more high-wage jobs.”
“We have so many unanswered needs, but we have one clear answer — create more high-wage jobs,” Villaraigosa, a Democrat, said.
“The answer to creating millions more high-wage jobs starts with making sure our state is investing enough in our schools, colleges, health care, roads, rail, housing and water infrastructure, which are the basic building blocks of a strong economy.”
