Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti addressed the crowd Thursday afternoon at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, saying he supports Hillary Clinton because she will work hard instead of just putting on a show.

"America's cities don't have time for theatrics," Garcetti said. "America's cities have urgent problems to solve."

In an interview with ABC7 after he spoke, Garcetti said he likes that Clinton has clear plans for getting guns off the streets, raising the minimum wage and making community college free.

"This is a pretty clear choice," Garcetti said. "I don't care if you're Republican or Democrat. We need someone who has a plan and she does."

Seeing the first woman nominated as the presidential candidate for a major party, he added, is "an amazingly beautiful day."

Other DNC speakers from Los Angeles included former Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Rep. Maxine Waters, labor leader Dolores Huerta and former Lakers great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
