Councilmember Lee Is the Only Candidate For LA City Council To Qualify With Over 1,000 Signatures



San Fernando Valley, CA - Today, Councilmember John Lee’s campaign for re-election announced qualifying for the 2024 Primary Election after submitting over 1,500 signatures from district voters placing him on the ballot.  Lee is the only candidate for City office to qualify by submitting over 1,000 signatures, demonstrating widespread grassroots support across the district as well as the strength of his campaign operation.


“My role as the representative of the 12th Council District has always been rooted in working hand in hand with the local organizations and community members that help our district grow and thrive,” said Councilmember John Lee. “The fact that dozens of our volunteers collected over 1,000 signatures sooner than any candidate in the city- and more importantly, any candidate running in Council District 12- speaks volumes to the work we continue to do together with our community.”


Candidates running for office in the City of Los Angeles are required to obtain 1,000 signatures to be placed on the ballot for the March 5, 2024 Primary Election. Candidates can choose to pay a fee of $300.00 to reduce the required number of signatures to 500. 


Councilmember John Lee was first elected in 2019 and again in 2020 to serve his first full term in office.  Since then, Councilmember Lee has implemented solutions to reduce homelessness and improve public safety, resulting in Council District 12 having one of the lowest rates of homelessness, property, and violent crime in the entire City of Los Angeles.  Lee has also been lauded for his attention to neighborhood issues and his focus on improving the responsiveness of city departments to neighborhood issues and requests.
