L.A. County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl announces staff appointments

L.A. County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl (Third District) today announced her incoming policy and constituent services staff appointments as she officially assumed office following her formal swearing-in Monday by her sister, Sacramento Superior Court Judge Jerilyn Borack.

“Im extremely proud and pleased to introduce the people who will be joining my staff at the County Hall of Administration,” Kuehl said. “Its a wonderfully experienced group, able to hit the ground running from the first day.”

“Supervisor Yaroslavsky has been an amazing representative for the entire Third District over the past 20 years, and my team and I look forward to continuing his great work.”

Kuehl won election on November 4 to succeed Zev Yaroslavsky, who is retiring due to term limits after representing the two million constituents of the Third District since 1994. The District includes much of the mid-city, Hollywood, San Fernando Valley and Westside portions of the City of Los Angeles, as well as the cities of Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Malibu, West Hollywood, Agoura Hills, Calabasas, San Fernando and Westlake Village, unincorporated Topanga and other communities in the Santa Monica Mountains.
