Candidates vying for the Los Angeles mayoral seat participated in a live, televised debate Monday night at UCLA.
A panel presented questions to each of the candidates, including City Councilman Eric Garcetti, attorney and radio talk show host Kevin James, City Controller Wendy Greuel, former technology executive Emanuel Pleitez, and City Councilwoman Jan Perry.
"As mayor of Los Angeles, I get not only being the fiscal watchdog, and showing where we can find this money, and knowing where the bodies are buried," said Greuel, who served on the City Council for seven years. "I've learned as city controller, you don't always make friends when you highlight what can be done better."
Each of the candidates said the mayor should be involved in the Los Angeles Unified School District, the Times reported. All five also supported a rail stop on the Crenshaw line at Leimert Park, according to the Times.
The election is March 5.
