By Matthew Hall
Long time Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky has endorsed State Senator Ted Lieu in the race for the 33rd Congressional District that includes Malibu, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica.
Lieu is running to replace Rep. Henry Waxman who will retire at the end of this year and Waxman also supports Lieu.
In a statement, Supervisor Yaroslavsky said
“I proudly endorse Ted Lieu for Congress to succeed my good friend Henry Waxman. Ted has a proven record of achievement representing the Westside and South Bay, and I know he will be an outstanding Congressman for the nation, California and Los Angeles County. Ted Lieu will strengthen the partnership between Washington and our region in providing public safety, rapid transit, reduced pollution and increased security for our seniors. He has my enthusiastic support for Congress.”
Supervisor Yaroslavsky has served on the LA County Board of Supervisors since 1994, representing the 3rd district.
Lieu’s current State Senate district includes about 80 percent of the voters in the congressional district. His is running against Republican Elan Carr.
