The Race for L.A. Mayor

A look into the candidates for mayor and their most important policies.

Earlier this year, in June, the primary election for Los Angeles County was held. The results for mayor were quite surprising after June 7th, the election day. For the position of mayor, there was an unexpected outcome of who the winner was…no one. It was a tie between Representative Karen Bass and Rick Caruso. Since neither candidate won with 50% or more of the vote, there will be an upcoming election on November 8th, the same day as midterms. Karen Bass had 43.1% of the vote and Rick Caruso has 36%. Throughout these past months, the projection has been fluctuating of what percentage of the vote each candidate has. So instead of trying to persuade you to vote a certain way, I will present you with the facts and therefore you will be able to make an informed decision on who you believe is the best candidate for the Mayor of Los Angeles. 

Both candidates are pro-choice and support a women’s right to choose and reproductive health. 

No matter who you choose to vote for, it is important to vote. By voting, you are supporting your own opinion and living out the democracy that this country reflects.
