We want to talk with candidates for city council districts (CDs) 1 and 9! We have invited all certified candidates to join us for one-on-one conversations focused on sustainability. There are only two certified candidates in each of these races, so the races will be decided in the June 7 primary.

Confirmed are
     Eunisses Hernandez, running for Gil Cedillo's seat in CD 1
     Dulce Vasquez, running for Curren Price's seat in CD 9

Do you have a question for one of the candidates? You can add it here and, time permitting, might be able to ask it yourself!

 

We will also talk about green hydrogen, and our representatives will vote on Council File 22-0255, which the NCSA energy committee recommends we support. The motion proposes that the Department of Water and Power and the Port of Los Angeles submit a proposal to the Department of Energy for funding for a green hydrogen hub to power hard-to-electrify industries, with provisions for nitrogen oxides (NOx) and other emissions monitoring. 

See the motion here.
