Former state legislator Sheila Kuehl and former Santa Monica Mayor Bobby Shriver will participate in a Sept. 16 candidates forum hosted by UCLA in partnership with the Los Angeles Business Council and the Century City Chamber of Commerce. The two candidates are vying to fill the district 3 seat on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.
The public forum will take place from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Little Theater in Macgowan Hall and focus on matters crucial to the district: transportation and economic development.
The third Supervisorial District includes Westwood, the Westside of Los Angeles that runs west from the Santa Monica Mountains to the Ventura County line, as well as the San Fernando Valley east to Atwater Village.
The winner in the Nov. 4 general election will replace outgoing Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky on the powerful five-member Board of Supervisors, which controls a $26 billion budget and represents roughly 10 million people in 88 cities in L.A. County.
UCLA’s forum will provide an opportunity for voters in the third district to hear from Kuehl and Shriver about their respective visions, policy positions and plans for L.A. County.
