Voters to Decide on City Attorney, Sales Tax Hike – Wendy Burch Reports

LOS ANGELES — In addition to choosing a new mayor, Angelenos heading to the polls on Tuesday will vote on a city attorney and a proposition to increase the city’s sales tax.

In the race for city attorney, the candidates have spent close to $3 million, making it one of the most expensive non-mayoral contests in city politics history.

A recent USC Price/L.A. Times poll shows a fluid and close three-way race for two spots on a likely runoff ballot.
