“I am very excited to announce my candidacy for Supervisorial District 3,” said West Hollywood Mayor Lindsey Horvath in a statement. “I am ready to get to work on issues ranging from homelessness to transportation, justice to the environment, public health to an economic recovery that includes everyone. I believe we as a County can move forward on these issues to greatly improve the lives of Angelenos.”
Mayor Horvath announced announced her candidacy for Los Angeles County’s 3rd Supervisorial District. The district, which stretches from Venice to Los Feliz to San Fernando, includes nearly 2 million residents.
“I am running to build on the bold, progressive work of LA County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl,” Mayor Horvath continued. “Supervisor Kuehl has been a leader on fighting climate change, ending mass incarceration, and advancing the rights of women and the LGBTQ+ community. I will expand upon her strong record of service, especially for the most vulnerable and marginalized in our region.”
Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl, who currently represents Supervisorial District 3, announced her support for Horvath. “Mayor Lindsey Horvath has demonstrated her inclusive leadership time and time again,” said Supervisor Kuehl. “She is uniquely qualified to serve as County Supervisor. From reducing homelessness to getting folks back to work, from protecting public health to improving our transportation grid, there is no one I would want to continue the work our team has done more than Mayor Lindsey Horvath. She is the best choice to become our next Los Angeles County Supervisor for District 3.”
Mayor Horvath was elected to the West Hollywood City Council in 2015, and previously served from 2009 to 2011. Horvath serves as a leader of West Hollywood and a regional leader in a number of roles, including: President of the California Contract Cities Association (CCCA); Board Member for CalCities (formerly the League of California Cities); Board Member for the National League of Cities (NLC); Immediate Past President of Women in Municipal Government (WIMG) for the National League of Cities; and Executive Committee Member and Legislative & Regulatory Chair for Clean Power Alliance of Southern California.
Lindsey is quick to accept this endorsement, but does she have anything to say about Kuehl’s problematic legacy of aggressively excluding transgender women from women’s issues in her early years? What about Kuehl’s unrepentant misandrist attitudes (such as actively excluding male survivors from crucial domestic violence legislation), that persist to this day? Please clarify who exactly are you intending to represent, Lindsey, lest Kuehl’s legacy will speak for you.
