What to expect
With a momentous year in Los Angeles politics underway, there’s a lot of hot air, lofty rhetoric and ambitious policy proposals coming from candidates. Our newsletter will help you make sense of it all.
Each Saturday morning, L.A. on the Record lands in your inbox to offer thoughtful context, dishy tidbits, occasional deep dives and a healthy dose of palace intrigue. You can sign up above or at our newsletters center.
Angelenos will decide their next mayor on Nov. 8, along with numerous other competitive races across the city and county. Your vote will matter more than ever as the city confronts crises including homelessness, housing affordability and competing visions for the city’s future.
The L.A. Times City Hall team writing this newsletter is a mix of transplants and native Angelenos who are experts in the subjects that matter. We all are invested in the future of this city and want voters to know what’s what when they head to the ballot box.
L.A. on the Record is for avid politics watchers, but it’s also for those who simply care about our city and need some help keeping track of what’s happening and why it matters.
