News, Who will replace L.A. County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl — a seasoned Sacramento legislator or a millennial West Hollywood activist? : detailed suggestions and opinions about Who will replace L.A. County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl — a seasoned Sacramento legislator or a millennial West Hollywood activist? .
Upon introductions at a candidates forum at UCLA’s Hammer Museum in late September, the contrasts between state Sen. Bob Hertzberg (D-Van Nuys) and West Hollywood City Councilmember Lindsey Horvath became clear.
The seasoned Sacramento legislator and the millennial Westside activist, respectively, are running to replace outgoing Los Angeles County District 3 Supervisor Sheila Kuehl.
The bespectacled Hertzberg, 67, sat cross-legged with a pair of 450-page-plus self-published books to his right. One contained a collection of op-ed pieces the self-described “ideas man” has written over the last 20 years, on issues from housing to redistricting.
He read a brief invocation from the Torah about good governance, then showcased a body of legislative work that began in 1996 — the same year Horvath entered high school. Hertzberg, a Van Nuys resident, promised the audience that he would solve problems with big ideas, negotiation and compromise.
