It's nice to know that governing the second largest city in the United States has done nothing to affect Mayor Eric Garcetti's maturity.

On Thursday night the Los Angeles County Young Democrats honored both Mayor Garcetti and Compton's new mayor Aja Brown in their annual Laurel Awards ceremony at the Next Door Lounge in Hollywood.

To quote the honorable mayor of Los Angeles on Facebook, "It was a pleasure meeting the City of Compton's excellent new Mayor Aja Brown at yesterday's Los Angeles County Young Democrats Laurel Awards. I just couldn't resist this photobomb opportunity."

The 31-year old mayor just three months into the job, Brown has already had glowing articles written in Vogue and The Guardian. She faces the tough prospect of trying to transform a city riddled with corruption and undergoing a demographic change.
