In early vote tallies, there appear to be no new Los Angeles city council members elected in Tuesday’s primary, with some races likely to be decided in November.
The city had eight of its 15 district seats up for grabs this year, from districts 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13 and 15 and multiple familiar faces presumably returning to Los Angeles City Hall.
We are assured to see at least four new council members next year, as Kevin de Leon and Joe Buscaino both conceded their seats to instead run for mayor of Los Angeles, Paul Koretz leaving to run for city controller and Mike Bonin announcing his retirement.
In early votes, it appears voters chose to bring back four council members, with the rest of the seats, including 13th district Councilman Mitch O’Farrell’s, to be decided in the Nov. 8 national elections.
