Huizar, Wesson Sworn In as Council Members
Jose Huizar and Herb Wesson were sworn in Tuesday as members of the City Council.
The council is now back to its full 15 members for the first time since July 1, when Antonio Villaraigosa became mayor and Martin Ludlow resigned to head the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor.
Huizar, a former member of the L.A. Board of Education, represents the city’s 14th District, which includes Boyle Heights, El Sereno, Mount Washington, Highland Park and Eagle Rock. Wesson, who was state Assembly speaker, represents the 10th District, including Mid-City and parts of South L.A. and Koreatown.
