Los Angeles City Council District 12

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Los Angeles City Council District 12 is one of the 15 districts of the Los Angeles City Council. It encompasses the northwestern and western section of the San Fernando Valley, in the city of Los Angeles. It is represented by John Lee.

On August 14, candidate John Lee claimed victory as the results showed him with a sizable lead over his opponent.[1] Los Angeles City Council elections are nonpartisan. Lee is the only Republican on the 15-member council, just as were his predecessors, Smith and Englander.[2] With Lee, the City Council will include two Asian Americans (the other being Councilmember David Ryu), the most in its history.[3]

What's up y'all? It's The Frugal Man LA and today I'm in downtown LA where things are booming. There's a lot going on here and there are a lot of free things to do here. I've got a lot to cover today, so lets get going. You can totally avoid expensive parking downtown by taking LA Metro. A 1-way fare with unlimited transfers for 2 hours costs $1.75. Round trip would be $3.50 I took the Expo like to the Red line to our first destination, The Broad art museum. With nearly 2,000 works of art it's one of the most prominent collections of post-war and contemporary art worldwide. Reserve your free tickets in advance at Select the day and time you'd like to visit and then save the tickets on your smart phone. Arrive a few minutes before your designated time, show your tickets at the door, and you're good to go. Follow my advice and you won't get stuck waiting in the stand-by line like a loser. Make sure to download The Broad's free mobile app for your visit. The multiple audio tours are an awesome way to enhance your museum experience. Jingle: ♪ Sit right down and get your Campbell's worth! ♪ "Andy Warhol claimed he ate a can of soup everyday. For 20 years. He certainly appreciated uniformity. When Warhol first exhibited his famous soup can paintings the gallery displayed them in tidy rows on shelves." Eli and Edythe Broad have been building their art collection over the last 5 decades. With a belief that the greatest collections are developed alongside practicing artists, the Broads focus on the art of their time. The Central Library here in downtown Los Angeles is both a leading public research library and an architectural landmark. Free tours are given everyday so lets go jump on one of those tours. Tours leave from the main lobby in front of the library store. Check for tour times. A library docent will lead you through the distinctive 1926 Bertram Goodhue building and the futuristic 1993 Tom Bradley wing. The 2 buildings are a fascinating mash-up of architecture, history, and art. Stick around to the end of the tour for a surprise free souvenir. I would totally swipe right on the Don't Walk lady. Sound Effect: Boing! Grand Central Market is a great place to get an inexpensive meal. With a myriad of unique choices, there's something here for everyone. Today I'm gonna hit up Sarita's Pupuseria for a delicious Salvadorian dish. At $3.25 this is one of the best deals here at Grand Central Market. I'm hungry, it's time to dig-in! Mmm... This is good! They say you can't fight city hall but you can check out the observation deck at one of our city's most iconic buildings. Let's go check it out. Once you enter city hall you'll go through security and get a visitor's badge. You have to take multiple elevators to the 26th floor and from there you'll take the stairs to the 27th floor. Alright, so I've made it to the observation deck here on the top of city hall It's kind of an overcast day but there's still some amazing views of the city. Let's check it out. Before you leave, check out the portraits of LA's former mayors who had some serious beard game. Our final stop is here on Olvera Street where we're gonna check out the oldest residence in the city of Los Angeles, Avila Adobe. Built in 1818 it's almost 200 years old. Originally home to wealthy cattle rancher Francisco Avila, the residence was considered gracious in its day and hosted numerous social gatherings. The walls of Avila Adobe are over 2 feet thick and were built from sun-baked adobe bricks. Tar from the La Brea Tar Pits was applied to the roof as a sealant from inclement weather. And that's a wrap! I've spent all day downtown and I only spent $3.50 on roundtrip transportation and $3.25 for lunch. Everything else was totally free. What a deal!

Until next time, stay frosty! My fellow citizens, the people of Los Angeles, I am The Frugal Man LA and I am here to save YOU money! With nearly 2,000 works of art, it's one of the most... Prominent!

See official city map outlining District 12.


From 1925 to 1964 the district occupied the same general area in northwest Downtown Los Angeles or the Westlake area. In 1964, however, it was shifted bodily to the North Valley, taking Council Member John P. Cassidy with it.

The rough boundaries or descriptions have been as follows:

1926. Bunker Hill and northwest Downtown, with a district office at 1209 Huntley Drive in the Westlake area.[5][6]

1928. South boundary: Ninth Street. West: Hoover Street. North: Fountain Avenue. East: Temple, Bellevue and Alvarado streets.[7]

1932–33. Same as 1928, with the east boundary moved to Figueroa Street and the south boundary to Pico Boulevard.[8][9]

1935. Same general area as 1932, with the north boundary in an irregular line on Temple Boulevard to the southern edge of Griffith Park.[10]

1940. Same general area as previously, with the east and north boundaries at Glendale Boulevard and at Sunset Boulevard.[11]

1954. West of Downtown, between Figueroa and Catalina streets.[12]

1955. Roughly Venice Boulevard on the south, Sunset Boulevard on the north, Catalina Street on the west and Figueroa Street on the east.[13]

1964. Shifted to the northwest San Fernando Valley.[14]


The district has been represented by thirteen men and one woman, Harriett Davenport; she succeeded her husband, Ed J. Davenport, who died in office in 1953. The district has also been represented by a Republican since at least 1979.
