Election Results: City of Los Angeles
With under 12% of the registered voters in the City of Los Angeles either going into their polling place or filing a ballot by mail, the March 8th Primary Nominating and Consolidated Election saw to it the passage of the bulk of the measures and the maintaining of the status quo in most council districts with the re-election of incumbents.Voters opted to approve the Library Tax (Measure L), and the tax on Medical Marijuana Revenue (Measure M). Though newcomers like Stephen Box in CD 4, and Rich Goodman in CD 6 won endorsements and brought welcome energy to the campaign for Council posts, all of the districts with incumbents running opted to keep their incumbents in place. The only district without and incumbent, CD 12, was handily won by Mitchell Englander.
