Why Kenneth?

Kenneth is the only Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in the race

Kenneth has 11 years of accounting and auditing experience and has the technical expertise to serve as LA City Controller — the City’s elected auditor, chief accounting officer, and paymaster. He will be ready on day one to sound the alarm on corruption and wasteful spending to make our tax dollars work for us.

Kenneth is the only organizer in the race

Kenneth is a longtime community organizer with the LA Tenants Union, fighting against unjust rent increases, evictions, and abusive landlords. Kenneth’s organizing experience informs his principles and his commitment to ensure that City resources serve all Angelenos.

Kenneth has the most grassroots support

Our campaign raised the most money in small-dollar donations out of any 2022 City Controller campaign. We are proud to be funded by the people in contrast to our opponents’ big donors that all too often represent corporate and special interests instead of everyday Angelenos.

“[Voters] will find in Mejia a candidate who is serious about making government more transparent, accessible and functional for the people of Los Angeles — not the special interests that have stymied reform and progress.”

How can you help?

Our Solutions for A Thriving and Equitable Los Angeles

Homelessness

Homelessness is a humanitarian crisis in Los Angeles. The City of LA has failed to address homelessness, with more people entering homelessness than exiting into permanent, secure housing. As City Controller, we'll account and audit homelessness funds and programs, propose plans and recommendations on how to functionally end homelessness, push for vacant city properties to be developed into permanent housing, and create maps and tools to connect people with services.

Housing

Our campaign is already doing the work by creating a map of Affordable Housing units that you can use to find housing. As Controller, we'll calculate steps needed to build more affordable housing, lower the cost of rent, audit the housing department, calculate effectiveness of proposed regulations, and create a citywide  vacancy unit tracker.

Environment

Our plan includes a transition to 100% renewable energy and full decarbonization that ensures good paying, green, union jobs for workers. Los Angeles must also commit to justice for communities impacted by climate change and pollution who are disproportionately working class communities of color.

Public Transit & Safe Streets

Our plan to achieve fare-free public transit, sheltered bus stops, frequent bus and train service and safe crossings, sidewalks, bike lanes and walkable beautiful neighborhoods.

Animal Welfare

Los Angeles Animal Shelters are in a state of crisis. Thanks to volunteers and other whistleblowers who have stepped forward, the animal neglect and mismanagement of Los Angeles Animal Services has become unignorable. As City Controller, and as a proud pet parent, I will help restore LAAS to its primary purpose— serving animals.
