This Feb. 20, 2013 photo shows mayoral candidate Kevin James speaking to media in Los Angeles.

At a time the city is desperate for fresh thinking -- mired in financial crisis and shackled with huge pension and health care bills -- the leading candidates are all political careerists deeply entrenched in a bureaucracy often criticized as resistant to change.
