EPISODE 102 – HUGO SOTO-MARTINEZ FOR COUNCIL DISTRICT 13

Hugo Soto-Martinez returns for a second time to chat with us about the upcoming vote for leadership in the neighborhood over the next four years. Hugo performed well during his primary contest against L.A. City Council incumbent Mitch O’Farrell for L.A.’s 13th district, when almost half of the area’s voters chose him as the next Council District Representative; nearly 42,000 voters came out for the contest, of whom Hugo’s campaign captured at least 41% to Mitch O’Farrell’s 32%. Our convo touches on protections for renters and property owners amid gentrification, climate change, Karen Bass’ candidacy for mayor, and more. Vote-by-mail ballots arrive to mailboxes around October 8th, 2022; and Election Day in Los Angeles is Tuesday, November 8th, 2022.
