    Los Angeles has elected its first Jewish mayor.

    Eric Garcetti, 42, defeated his opponent Wendy Greuel by six percentage points.

    The Liberal Democrat tweeted after hearing the result : “Thank you Los Angeles – the hard work begins but I am honored to lead this city for the next four years. Let’s make this a great city again.”

    Other city positions were won by members of the Jewish community, including newly-elected city attorney Mike Feuer and Ron Galperin in his bid to be city controller.

    Los Angeles has the second largest Jewish community in America with 600,000 Jews residing there.
