ELECTION WATCH: The latest election news and analysis
LAUSD Board District 5
The parents and children in Board District 5 have had no representation on the LAUSD Board since July, when former Board Member Ref Rodriguez resigned. A special election has been called for March 5 to elect a new representative to the Board. If no one gets 50 percent of the vote, a runoff between the top two vote getters will be held in May.
The white area on the map represents Board District 5, which includes Silver Lake, Echo Park, Los Feliz and Eagle Rock in the northeast, as well as the southeast cities of Huntington Park, Bell South Gate, Vernon, Maywood and Cudahy. City Terrace connects the two regions of BD5.
