Nury Martinez won yesterday’s election to LA’s 6th City Council District in the East San Fernando Valley. She defeated former State Senator Cindy Montanez 55% to 45%. Martinez was a member of the LA Unified School Board, who now works for the DWP. After Jan Perry’s departure from the City Council and Cindy Greuel’s defeat in the race for mayor, Nury Martinez is now the only female elected official in Los Angeles.
