Cool Dad Job: Mayor of Los Angeles
Cool Dad Vibe: Knight of Camelot
Cool Dad Bona Fides: Garcetti is the youngest mayor in the history of Los Angeles and he politics with unusual swagger. Garcetti, who comes from a Mexican and Jewish background, spent eight years in the Navy after making his way through the Navy and becoming an accomplished jazz pianist and Rhodes Scholar. It’s a lot and it’s easy to see why voters elected him to LA City Council in 2001. Now, with innovations like monthly constituent office hours and a “Constituent Bill of Rights,” Garcetti is consolidating power. He won a landslide reelection in 2017 and seems poised to become a national figure. If he eventually runs for president, as many expect, he’ll bring his wife Amy and their adopted daughter Maya Juanita on the campaign trail.
