LA Council Set to Wrap Up Week of Raucous Meetings as Krekorian Vows to Carry On

0

The Los Angeles City Council is set to reconvene Friday to wrap up a week of raucous meetings, which have been impacted by protesters vowing to return to City Hall demanding the council not meet until Councilmen Kevin de León and Gil Cedillo resign.

De León and Cedillo have defied fierce and widespread calls to resign for taking part in a leaked 2021 conversation that involved racist comments and attempts to manipulate redistricting, though a notice of intent to recall de León was filed with the city clerk’s office on Thursday.

On Wednesday, after clearing the chamber because protesters refused Council President Paul Krekorian’s request to quiet down, the council voted 12-0 to censure de León, Cedillo and former Councilwoman Nury Martinez — the first time the council has censured its own members since at least 1911.
