3rd district participants:
Bob Hertzberg - termed out CA State Senator/Assembly
Lindsey Horvath - West Hollywood City Council member
According to the current 3rd District Supervisor Kuehl
"With nearly two million residents, the LA County Board of Supervisors Third District has a population (2,061,345) larger than 14 states & Washington DC."
However, given that there are five districts for a 10 million population county each of the districts would have the same demographics. All four candidates are Democrats. The demographics of their districts are
- Democratic Party - 525,091
- Republican Party - 282,162
- No Party/Independent - 269,266
- Democratic Party - 653,704
- Republican Party - 196,226
- No Party/Independent - 283,795
- Democratic Party - 2,998,541 (53.4%)
- Republican Party - 962,562 (17.14%)
- No Party/Independent - 1,306,317 (23.26%)
"Kuehl’s 3rd District lost some world-renowned cultural venues — the Hollywood Bowl, the L.A. County Museum of Art, the Ford, the La Brea Tar Pits and the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures — to the 2nd and 5th districts."
