Mayor-elect Karen Bass, in response to a question at her November 17 press conference held at the historic Ebell of Los Angeles, said she still was overwhelmed by her recent victory in the contest to become the new Mayor of Los Angeles. She said she had not even contemplated the details of moving into Getty House in Windsor Square, but that she soon was to be talking with Mayor Garcetti about that and other transition issues.

Election results will not be official until December 5. The newly elected take office on December 12.

The campaigning included a lot of activity in Larchmont Chronicle readership areas. There were dueling blue and red campaign buses that stopped in Koreatown (Rick Caruso) and Wilshire Park (Karen Bass). Candidate Caruso and his dog, Hudson, walked Larchmont Boulevard. Caruso was a long time barbershop customer of the late Jerry Cottone.

BASS bus was in Wilshire Park.

Also campaign-related in the ’hood, the former Firestone tire dealership on La Brea Avenue (now All Season Brewing), was the scene of the election night party for the ultimate victor in the race to represent the Fifth District, Katy Young Yaroslavsky. At another local city council election night party, for CD 13, lots of neighbors were in attendance to support incumbent Mitch O’Farrell including — from Windsor Square — Mayor Eric Garcetti, Brian Curran and Kevin McClellan. As the vote count continued in the days following, O’Farrell conceded his defeat to new CD 13 councilmember Hugo Soto-Martinez.
