STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti on the passing of David Arian

"David Arian embodied what service means for his fellow human being. From the docks to the board room, his humor, his intelligence, and his commitment to justice built the most successful port in the Americas while doing right for the workers and the community that are the lifeblood of the harbor community. Our city and our world are better places because of David Arian's extraordinary career and because of his deep humanity. I will miss his friendship and his steady hand. He's probably organizing workers in heaven right now." — Mayor Eric Garcetti
