Mayor Villaraigosa Takes New Job as Construction Worker
Villaraigosa told KNX radio:
''We're using our federal dollars very efficiently,'' he said. ''There's a local match here as well. We've been committed, as we started to say, to putting our own money up. That's what makes, I think, L.A. very different from a lot of other places that go to the federal government, ask for money and don't put their own money up. You should know, we're also building the Exposition Line, which I think you know, and we did that, all the first phase, all local money.
