While Yo! Venice! does not usually make political endorsements, we do endorse Eric Garcetti for Mayor. Garcetti, who grew up in Los Angeles, knows the dynamics of Venice well and will likely be the best candidate for our community.

For Venice (CD11), there are four choices on the ballot for our City Council (listed here in ballot order) seat:

Tina Hess

Hess is a prosecutor that has worked in the City Attorney’s Office for the last 25 years.

Odysseus Bostick

Frederick Sutton
