Los Angeles’ first new mayor in nearly a decade will be decided on November 8 when Congressmen Karen Bass and Rick Caruso face off in a head-to-head match.
The six-year-old congresswoman finished the crowded June primary with a seven-point lead over the real estate developer. All three citywide offices – mayor, city attorney and city controller – will be up for vacancy in November, setting the stage for the biggest change in political leadership at City Hall since 2013.
Eight of the city’s 15 city council seats were voted on again this year. Four of those races were decided in the June primaries and four will continue until the November runoff.
