Carolyn Ramsay has been the chief of staff for LA City Councilman Tom LaBonge, who's been termed out of office. Ramsay is LaBonge's hand-picked successor. In a multi-candidate primary, she won by just 85 votes out of 240,000 cast. Her challenger is David Ryu, who's trying to make a virtue out of his inexperience. Gene Maddaus is covering the race for the LA Weekly.
