CD 4's Nithya Raman Faces Recall After Six Months in Office
Updated: Jul 13, 2021
According to an article in yesterday’s Los Angeles Times, the recently-formed CD4 for CD4 committee served Council District 4 Councilmember Nithya Raman with a recall notice outside her Silver Lake home on Wednesday. The Times reported that the committee believes Raman’s office is too inexperienced and unresponsive for her constituents to endure a full four-year term. The recall notice also states Councilmember Raman has placed her personal homelessness ideology over constituent safety. To get a recall on the ballot in the 4th district, which stretches from Hancock Park to Sherman Oaks to Silver Lake, CD4 for CD4 organizers would need to collect more than 27,000 valid signatures (15% of registered voters in CD 4) between July and early November. Raman has 21 days to respond to the recall notice.
