Los Angeles Special Election Announced
City Council approved a special election to fill the empty District 6 seat on April 4, 2023, with a runoff taking place June 27 if necessary.
The election follows Nury Martinez’s resignation after a leaked conversation about redistricting was made public.
In the recording, Martinez with fellow council members Gil Cedillo and Kevin De Leon were heard using racist and demeaning language when discussing how to manipulate the city’s redistricting process.
After pressure for all three to resign, only Martinez has stepped down.
