LAX: Garcetti seeks mostly new leadership on Airport Commission

Garcetti announced his choices for the Board of Airport Commissioners for Los Angeles World Airports Aug. 14, less than three months after he was elected to office.

The board oversees Los Angeles International Airport as well as Ontario International and Van Nuys airports. Sean Burton, Gabriel Eshaghian, Jackie Goldberg, Bea Hsu, Matthew Johnson and Cynthia Telles are Garcetti’s new appointees, as the mayor looked to make nearly a clean sweep of the commission.

Valeria Velasco, the board vice president and a Playa del Rey resident, was the only commissioner who was retained from former Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s administration.
