Los Angeles, CA City Councilman to Resign Early
City Councilman Felipe Fuentes will resign on September 11, nearly 10 months before his term ends, to become a lobbyist with the Apex Group in Sacramento.
In his new role, Fuentes will advocate for Associated General Contractors of California, a statewide trade association.
The council could call for a special election to fill his seat, but the 2017 city election schedule makes the scenario unlikely. The municipal election is already scheduled for March; if no candidate receives a majority in the March election, a May runoff will be held.
