Outgoing Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa had breakfast with incoming Mayor-elect Eric Garcetti yesterday at the Getty House in what the LA Times called the beginning of the “formal transition of power.”

We don’t know a whole lot these two disagree on in the area of education, but we can point to one thing: Board member Steve Zimmer. Villaraigosa made targeting Zimmer’s seat a top priority, and has repeatedly called him an enemy of reform. Garcetti endorsed Zimmer and frequently cited him as a Board member he would support.

The breakfast appeared to lack any protein, which one would hope is not a metaphor for the days to come.
