Tuesday April 8th, the City of Long Beach held its primary elections for Mayor, City Council, City Prosecutor, City Auditor, City Attorney, LBCC Trustee and LBUSD Board of Education.
Many of those seats will be determined in a "run-off" general election in June, but some races have already been determined. Council District 9, our district, has elected their next Councilperson, Ninth District Chief-of-Staff and Coolidge Triangle Neighborhood resident Rex Richardson, with 73% of the vote.

I've had the pleasure of working with Rex as my Chief-of Staff for the past four years, and I'm proud of what we've accomplished together. Many of our residents have come to know him over the years. He has been essential to much of the progress we have seen over the last four years. I wish him and his wife, Nina, the very best and look forward to working with him in the years to come.
Over the next few months, we will work on an office transition, so that we maintain the great momentum we have with the Uptown Renaissance in North Long Beach, like the upcoming groundbreaking of the North Branch Library, DeForest Wetlands, Houghton Park Community Center, and much more!
