Cohen, Smith and Overman are no-brainers, too.

Three of the races here are no-brainers, but for some reason, voters are a bit confused about District 2. Perhaps it’s the name recognition of Commissioner Ken Hagan—or maybe it’s the more than $416K he’s raised to his opponent’s $68K—but hopefully Angela Birdsong beats the incumbent this time around (she lost to him in 2018 by nearly 5 percentage points). Hagan claims to support term limits, but has skirted them for two decades by bouncing between districts. Birdsong is better on mass transit and brings fresh ideas to the chair.

District 1: Harry Cohen
District 2: Angela Birdsong
District 5: Mariella Smith
District 7: Kimberly Overman
