Watts Towers hosts Buscaino's Swearing-in (July 27, 2013)
Against the backdrop of the Watts Towers, the amazing construction erected by Italian immigrant Simon Rhodia more than 60 years ago, and today under the loving care of the Watts Towers Arts Center, another Italian-American, Joe Buscaino, was sworn in on July 27 as council member for the 15th district of the city of Los Angeles.
Buscaino took the oath of office from the new Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, who praised the character and accomplishments of "yet another child of Italy" in the city of L. A..
Following the ceremony, mc'd by Herb Wesson, President of L. A. City Council, and attended among others by Congresswomen Janice Hahn and Maxine Waters, a Little Italy street fair took place in the shadow of the towers, amid the enjoyment of Watts residents and excited visitors.
