Morning Report

  • The final tally of votes from the March 7 primary shows that First District Councilman Gil Cedillo will be forced into a runoff with second-place vote getter Joe Bray-Ali.  KPCC says Cedillo outspent Bray-Ali 4-to-1. But Cedillo was the only standing councilman who failed to win more than 50% of the vote and avoid a runoff. The runoff election will be held May 16.

  1. It’s on! If you want to build a massive apartment complex, or put up another unpermittrd billboard, or havemore cars burning more gas, or a get your very own stop sign on your street corner, now is the time to make a donation!

    • Seriously, what is it with the stop signs? Glad I’m not the only person who’s noticed that this is his idea of “doing something.”

      • I don’t care what professional planners say, more stop signs mean more safety. Actually reducing car speeds and improving safety is for hipsters and bicyclists, even if car commute times stay the same. (Pissing them off and showing them who’s boss by putting in more stop signs is frosting on the cake!) Plus, every stop sign is a photo op to show that I care about my fiefdom! I mean district. Now you can follow my latest fundraising exploits and celebrate my votes for big developers and oil companies on twitter @OneBillGil

    • Where can I get some taxpayer paid trash cans with my name?

  2. Poor Joe Bray Ali only has the hipsters and bicyclists, and I have millionaire Trump supporter/developer Geoff Palmer behind me. Sad! @OneBillGil

  3. Nice photo, Ms. Klein! Thank you

  4. I didn’t vote for during the last election, but this is one “hipster” with an agenda…an agenda to vote out Gil Cedillo in the run-off election!
