The race to replace Los Angeles City Councilmember Tom LaBonge, who is leaving office after 12 years in office because of term limits, is a crowded race. Over a dozen candidates are vying to replace the colorful LaBonge, who has been something of a staple here at Streetsblog.

Tonight, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Streetsblog Los Angeles, the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition and Los Angeles Walks will host a forum for candidates to discuss their Livable Streets bonafides. A reception after the forum is sponsored by Pocrass and De Los Reyes LLC, a personal injury law firm.

Anyone who can’t make the forum can follow it at our Live Stream account, Streetsblog TV. We’ll be broadcasting the forum live and archiving the video.

Eight candidates have accepted to our invitation. They are (in order of RSVP) Carolyn Ramsay, Fred Mariscal, Tara Bannister, Tomas O’Grady Mike Schaefer, Sheilia Irani, Rostam Sarkissian and Steve Veres.

What to Make of Last Night’s Election Results

Apparently, Los Angeles’ voters think everything is going pretty well in Los Angeles right now.  How else to explain the “clean sweep” that incumbent Councilmen, and in one case a hand-picked successor, enjoyed.  Not even one of the races went to a runoff, meaning that even in crowded fields incumbents garnered over 50% of the […]
