Villaraigosa files papers for second term

November 6, 2008 |  2:36 pm

Coming to you live from the City Clerk's office at Piper Tech, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is filing his official "Declaration of Intention" to run for a second term as mayor of Los Angeles. The deadline to file is Saturday.

Villaraigosa, dressed in a sharp charcoal suit, walked in with just a two aides at his side, not a major entourage. A handful of other candidates, filing for every office from city council to school board, came up to shake his hand and wish him luck in his bid for a second four-year term.

The city's primary election is in March.
