It's no secret that Mayor Eric Garcetti has an amazing Instagram account: he has just shy of 84,000 followers (and we tipped you off last year when we included him in our post on LA Instagram accounts to follow). But we recently found out from the Mayor's Office that @ericgarcetti is run solely by Eric Garcetti, with no help from staff and no borrowed photos (unless noted, of course). With all the mayor has on his plate, we're impressed that he makes time for an account that's so much more than it seems on the surface; not just another social media platform, but a daily reminder of how beautiful, diverse and fun our city is.
And his photos are top-notch! If Garcetti ever retires from politics, he has one hell of a portfolio. What's more, his photos aren't just good, they're also funny (we love a mayor with a good sense of humor), and give a sense of real admiration for Los Angeles and its people—exactly what an inspiring mayor should convey, on social media and always.
Take a look at @ericgarcetti's top 10 posts from just this year, and if you haven't yet, give the mayor your vote Instagram follow.
