The new mayor of Los Angeles will be Eric Garcetti. Garcetti will become the 42nd elected mayor of American Los Angeles and the 86th person to lead the city since its founding in 1781 as a Spanish settlement. His father, Gil Garcetti, served as a former Los Angeles County District Attorney. His mother is Jewish, making Garcetti the first elected Jewish mayor of Los Angeles. In 1878, Bernard Cohn, who was Jewish, served briefly as mayor of Los Angeles after the then elected mayor died in office. Garcetti will lead a city now teeming with a population of more than 4 million residents. The first person to serve as mayor of Los Angeles was a 28-year old Indian named Jose Vanegas appointed in 1786 to oversee the tiny new Spanish settlement. It then had a population of about 100.
