77 candidates for a variety of offices have qualified to appear on the March 5, 2013 ballot, L.A. City Clerk June Lagmay announced today.

The most crowded race -- at 12 candidates -- is for Council District 13, which Eric Garcetti is vacating to run for Mayor, a race of eight candidates in itself. Other L.A. positions up for grabs are City Controller, City Attorney, and seats for seven more districts, most which will bring new faces to the City Council. Board member positions for LAUSD and the L.A. Community College District will also be on the ballot.

PEOPLE OF LOS ANGELES
PLEASE help VOTE the INCUMBENT NANCY PEARLMAN (2nd vice president) OUT of district 6 for the Board of Trustees. The last 10 years at the LACCD the board has lost or misspent over 200 MILLION tax dollars on shoddy oversight of doling out the contracts to ,it seems, incompetent contractors that had often DONATED to their campaigns- JUST SAYING. ! I THINK TOM OLIVER SEEMS HONEST! this is my opinion. for educating yourselves google the HARVARD (Bingham /worth award) award winning series by the los angeles times on the fiasco that is the board of trustess- in fact the other two incumbents are not even running! http://laccd.latimes.com/
