Sen. Henry Stern Declares for Supervisor

Hot on the heels of approval of the redistricting map for the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, State Senator Henry Stern announced his candidacy via his Zoom livecast to replace Third District Supervisor Sheila Kuehl, when she retires next November. “After a year of deliberation, the Los Angeles County Citizens Redistricting Commission just wrapped,” Stern announced in his statement. “Because of our common interests, the Commission drew the boundaries for the new Third District precisely within the communities I have put my love and labor into as a State Senator for the last six years, and throughout my life. “We have been through it. COVID. Fires. Blackouts. Blowouts. Homelessness. Shootings. We are vibrant, faithful, wild, creative, and hard-working. We are Democrats, Republicans and people who are just sick of politics altogether. “We are the mountains, the valleys, the canyons, the flats, and the coast. We are wealthy and destitute. We are hopeful and fed up. We are pragmatic and progressive. “For better or worse, we are LA. “My work in the Capitol has taught me how to legislate under pressure. But serving you through so many crises, and seeing how broken things can get on the ground, makes me hungry to come home—to serve you in the guts of government, where our competence is being put to the test, on the LA County Board of Supervisors.” Stern, who will not need to vacate his 27th District senate seat during the campaign, will have competition from Assemblyman Richard Bloom, L.A. City Controller Ron Galperin, West Hollywood Councilwoman Lindsey Horvath, and possibly Senate Majority Leader Robert Hertzberg, who is “seriously considering running” for the choice seat, and maybe more.
