Sheila Kuehl To Run For Yaroslavsky’s LA County Board of Supervisors Seat:

When Zev Yaroslavsky is termed out of office for the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors next year, former State Senate and State Assembly member Sheila Kuehl hopes to be elected to his seat.

Kuehl confirmed her intention to KPCC earlier this week to run for the Third District in December 2014.

“It’s really the only place I can imagine using all the things that I learned in the Legislature in 14 years,” Kuehl told KPCC. “My priorities [are] environmental, health and human services, and then the third thing really has to do with transportation.”

Members of the Board of Supervisors also serve on the Metro Board, which oversees public transportation for L.A. County.

Kuehl was the first openly gay person elected to the Legislature, where she served a total of 14 years in both houses before she left the legislature under California’s term limits statute in 2008.

She served eight years in the State Senate and six years in the State Assembly.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is the five-member nonpartisan governing board of Los Angeles County.

The other four seats are currently held by Gloria Molina (District 1), Mark Ridley-Thomas (District 2), Don Knabe (District 4), and Michael Antonovich (District 5).

Yaroslavsky won his first term on the Los Angeles Board of Supervisors in 1994. He was elected to a fifth term in 2010, running unopposed.
