Gil Cedillo on housing, gentrification and why he took developer money

There is an unexpectedly interesting city council election next week in Los Angeles. Incumbent Gil Cedillo is facing first-time challenger Joe Bray-Ali. Bray-Ali’s campaign blew up after it was revealed he made repeated offensive comments online. But Cedillo is also under fire for taking money from LA developer Geoff Palmer, and not being responsive to his constituents. We hear from Cedillo today.

Gil Cedillo is in the  May 16th  runoff election for LA City Council District 1.
