After 40 years on the Los Angeles City Council and then Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, Zev Yaroslavsky is retiring.
The tight race for the Third District’s Supervisor was too close to call during mid-elections on Tuesday night.
As LA’s Election Day 2014 approaches, the battle for County Supervisor is shaping up to be one of the hottest races of the season.
Kuehl had 34.99 percent of votes, while former Santa Monica Mayor Bobby Shriver trailed behind with 29.88 percent, according to numbers on the L.A. County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk website.
Kennedy family member and one-time Santa Monica mayor Shriver and 14-year state lawmaker Kuehl challenged each other’s records during the sit-down at Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks.
The race is on to succeed Zev Yaroslavsky, one of the big names on the County Board of Supervisors, pitting a current member of the Kennedy clan against a former TV sitcom star-turned-lawmaker.
