Villaraigosa on Whether He Will Run For Governor & City Employee Firings (Video)

Now that former eBay CEO Meg Whitman has announced that she is running for California Governor (along with San Fransico Mayor Gavin Newsom), here is Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa answering the question as to whether he will run or not from a recent Town Hall Budget Meeting (asked before Meg announced she was running).

He then talks a little bit about the budget crisis and threat of citywide employee firings.

Despite what you think of Villaraigosa and this whole budget bamboozle, shim-sham, orf a flim-flame, smoke and mirror, fluffier than cotton candy, bluff budget; these videos shot two weeks ago at his first town hall meeting is a rare chance to see Antonio "work" the crowd in a very intimate setting, with a VERY close camera angle (the ZumaCAM). Not a bad view and NO press pass needed.
