Mark Ridley-Thomas accepted congratulations Monday on his apparent victory over challenger Grace Yoo for the 10th District seat on the Los Angeles City Council.

Though Yoo has not conceded, Ridley-Thomas leads the attorney and community activist 61.27% to 38.73% in the runoff election.

Ridley-Thomas retweeted Mayor Eric Garcetti, who offered his congratulations to the current County Supervisor, as well as to Nithya Raman, who won the 4th District seat after incumbent David Ryu conceded late last week.

The victory marks a return for Ridley-Thomas to the L.A. City Council, where he served from 1991-97. He is termed out from his County Board of Supervisors seat, where he will be replaced by State Senator Holly Mitchell. She won a resounding victory over L.A. City Councilman Herb Wesson.
