Eric Garcetti has been elected mayor of Los Angeles, Mike Feuer is the city's new top attorney, and now a new face will join LA Unified's seven member board of education.

Voters yesterday elected Monica Ratliff to the school board by a slim margin.

It has been a closely watched race that some said would be pivotal for schools Superintendent John Deasy's education reform agenda. KPCC's Adolfo Guzman-Lopez followed the campaign and joins the show with more.
