City Attorney Mike Feuer will begin a listening tour for his 2022 campaign for mayor of Los Angeles at the Los Angeles LGBT Center in Hollywood Wednesday, one day after launching his campaign.
In a letter emailed to supporters Tuesday, Feuer said homelessness would be his top priority as mayor.
“No one should have to live on the streets, and we need even more urgently to create housing and services,” Feuer wrote. “At the same time, we’ve got to assure our public spaces are safe and accessible for all of us. Striking that balance will require taking our city’s best efforts to a whole new level.’
Feuer also pledged to replicate his Neighborhood Justice Program as mayor.
“Ask Angelenos about life in our city, and they’ll begin with how they feel about their block. A well-run city pays close attention to what happens on those blocks.
“As city attorney, I more than tripled the number of problem-solving lawyers working in our neighborhoods, created a neighborhood-based justice reform program that helps offenders turn their lives around and focused on neighborhood school safety. As mayor, I’ll follow this model, embedding staff from City Hall in L.A.’s neighborhoods to support your priorities.”
Feuer was a Los Angeles City Council member from 1995-2001, representing the Westside’s Fifth District, and an assemblyman from 2006-12. He was elected city attorney in 2013, defeating incumbent Carmen Trutanich, and reelected in 2017 without opposition.
Mayor Eric Garcetti is barred from running for reelection because of term limits.
