Villaraigosa says he plans to stay on the job until his term ends


February 1, 2013


Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said today that he plans to stay mayor until his term ends June 30, greatly reducing the likelihood that he would become President Obama's secretary of Transportation.

"I have said many times that I will be focused on my job as mayor of Los Angeles until 11:59 and 59 seconds on June 30, 2013," Villaraigosa said in a prepared statement. "I am flattered and humbled by the speculation that has included my name for a possible cabinet secretary position, but I am firmly committed to remaining in L.A. and finishing my term."
