Close to victory, Los Angeles City Council candidates discuss abolitionist views

Community activist Eunisses Hernandez, 32, is expected to be the next representative for the Los Angeles City Council’s 1st District.

Hernandez currently leads incumbent Gil Cedillo 54% to 46%, and although the election has yet to be finalized — Los Angeles County still has nearly 14,000 ballots to be counted — she has declare victory.

Zedillo, who declined to comment for this story, has yet to concede victory.

Hernandez, a self-described abolitionist, is campaigning on a platform that includes criminal justice reform.
