Greuel is receiving big financial support from unions representing city employees. Most of those unions have put their money on her, including about $1.5 million from the local representing workers at the city's Department of Water and Power.
The cost of city jobs are part of the budget crisis that awaits the new mayor, who will have to help negotiate salary agreements with the water department, police, fire, and other city employees.
To help the city balance its budget, Garcetti has backed layoffs, furloughs and an increase in the retirement age for new city workers. A few unions have endorsed Garcetti, but their money is a fraction of what Greuel has received.
Greuel has criticized Garcetti for proposing draconian measures against labor.
In response, Garcetti calls his opponent "the DWP's mayor" and asks voters: "How much will it cost you?"
Voters will render their verdict on the two candidates on Tuesday.
