Will Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti quit his current job to become U.S. ambassador to India?

That’s the rumor that’s been circulating in City Hall and elsewhere for days, and now the mayor’s office says Garcetti is scheduled to fly to Washington Tuesday to meet with federal officials. However, according to the official explanation, the trip is only to discuss the need for more infrastructure funding for Los Angeles.

There was no reference to any discussion possibilities of the India post.

Garcetti is set join House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco, and House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chair Peter DeFazio, D-Oregon, to begin a campaign advocating for more infrastructure spending in cities across the nation, an aide told City News Service.

Garcetti is scheduled to return to Los Angeles Thursday.
