As we witness the beginning of a new American government that is more connected with its people than ever, and a President who said Yes I Will! keep my Blackberry, it’s interesting to see the connectivity trend on a local level with L.A. politicians.
Eric Garcetti, the Man Who Should be Mayor of Los Angeles, is arguably the best example of this. He’s connected. He wants to communicate with his fellow Angelenos. So, he Twitters. Not like Villaraigosa, who has his staff Twittering to collect Facebook friends. Eric Twitters to tell us WHAT HE’S DOING.

He lets you know that he’s working. Trying to get the little things done that make this a better city for all of us. While at the same time, reminding you that he’s just like us. Because everyone likes pudding.
