Los Angeles mayoral race: Wendy Greuel, Eric Garcetti debate at USC


During the debate Sunday, both highlighted their accomplishments, adding they're ready to get to work.

"I'm fired up, ready to get ready for work, and on the other hand, I am not going to back down when there are attacks," said Greuel. "I'm going to stand up for myself. I'm a fighter and I believe in fixing City Hall and improving the quality of life in every neighborhood is something we all strive for."

Garcetti, who represents the 13th District, touted his work as a councilman.

"Today, my district is No. 1 in job growth, violent crime has been cut by two-thirds, and we tripled the number of parks, building 31 new parks in the park-poorest and land-poorest district in the city," he said.

Voters head to the polls on May 21.
