City Hall

Video: How many ways can you say 'Joe Buscaino'?

For Los Angeles City Councilman Joe Buscaino's inaugural party held Saturday the Warner Grand Theater in San Pedro, the other members of the City Council butcher his name for fun on video. "I know what it's like to have everyone mispronounce your name," Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa says in the video. Controller Wendy Greuel also appears.
