A protest was held outside Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti's official residence today for the ninth consecutive day by groups that do not want to see Garcetti appointed to President-elect Joe Biden's cabinet.

Black Lives Matter-Los Angeles and Ground Game LA have vowed to conduct a demonstration every day until Biden commits to not appointing Garcetti to the cabinet. They are critical of Garcetti's handling of homelessness, public transportation and other issues.

Garcetti has repeatedly said he has not sought a position with the Biden administration.
