"Angelenos say they generally feel detached from city government"

Wonderful to speak with Soumya Karlamangla of the Los Angeles Times for this piece.

Jessica Levinson, who teaches election law at Loyola Law School, said L.A. council districts "are so huge that it's really easy to feel like you have no connection to your elected official."

Each district contains about a quarter of a million residents and, in many instances, sharply diverse communities of voters. And L.A. is simply a less political place than San Francisco or large Eastern cities such as New York and Boston, where politics figures more prominently in daily life and culture, Levinson said.
