They know him in New York

VillaraigosaThe New York Times has posted the first of a four-part video conversation between Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and the paper's Calvin Sims, a former foreign correspondent now hosting online interviews. Part one focuses on Villaraigosa the coalition builder, "known for his ability to help people transcend lines of race, class, ethnicity and geography." Part two goes up tomorrow, and the mayor has agreed to answer follow up questions emailed to the NYT.
