STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti on Xavier Becerra's Confirmation as California Attorney General

“California needs an Attorney General with the integrity and conviction to stand strong for our values of tolerance, environmental stewardship, and respect for the rights and dignity of all people. Xavier Becerra is the right leader at the right time — and I am pleased that he was confirmed today by the State Senate. Los Angeles knows our new Attorney General’s outstanding record of advocacy: As a member of Congress, he was instrumental in helping our city move forward on issues that range from immigration and environmental protection to strengthening public safety and modernizing our infrastructure. I am confident that his commitment to equal justice and thoughtful leadership will be of great benefit to our state in the years ahead.”
