It’s official–Mike Bonin has won the race for the 11th District L.A. City Council seat.
As of Wednesday morning, Bonin had 61 percent of the vote total with 100 percent of precincts reporting. This means that he will avoid a runoff in May.
City prosecutor Tina Hess finished second with 18 percent of the vote tally. Frederick Sutton, 28, finished with about 12 percent and Odysseus Bostick, a Westchester parent and teacher, ended the race with about 9 percent of the vote total.
Serving as chief deputy to Rosendahl since 2005, Bonin has advocated for increased police presence in the 11th District, promoted efforts to reduce traffic congestion and created a successful anti-homeless program, among many other accomplishments.
A graduate of Harvard University with a B.A. in U.S. history, Bonin currently lives in Mar Vista with his partner, Sean Arian, a policy expert in economic development and green jobs.
