FROM THIS EPISODE

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. 

On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, after months of debate about gun control, immigration and government spying, President Obama has begun an effort to turn Washington’s attention back to the economy.  We’ll hear about today’s first speech in a new public relations campaign as Republicans take aim at all his priorities, new and old.

Main Topic Nury Martinez Wins 6th District, Becomes City's Only Elected Woman 6 MIN, 25 SEC

Nury Martinez was elected yesterday to fill a vacancy on the LA City Council.  She’s an executive at the DWP and a former member of the LA School Board.  In the heavily Latino 6th district, only 10.2% of eligible voters turned out. Why was there so little interest?
