    Angelenos looking for lower taxes and lower DWP bills may want to consider Prince Frederic von Anhalt for mayor of Los Angeles, according to the candidate's newly unveiled billboard.

    The eccentric husband of actress Zsa Zsa Gabor announced his mayoral run via a billboard located at 8789 Sunset Blvd., an address that should sound familiar to von Anhalt fans -- it was the same billboard he used to celebrate his 25th wedding anniversary back in July.

    Mayoral details are sparse, but according to his website, a press conference is scheduled for Friday at 11 a.m.

    During a recent run-in with TMZ, the candidate said his campaign will focus on jobs and homelessness.

    "400,000 people out of jobs and 40,000 homeless. I see people eating out of trash cans every day. This must end," he told TMZ.

    Last year, von Anhalt ran for governor of California, but dropped out of the race to help take care of his ailing wife. Von Anhalt, 68, and Gabor, 94, recently moved into a condo and put their Bel Air mansion up for sale.

    Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will be termed out of office in 2013.
