Outgoing Councilmember Lindsey Horvath will face off one-on-one for the first with state Sen. Bob Hertzberg this Sunday in a forum hosted by the Malibu Democratic Club.
Hertzberg and Horvath were the top 2 vote-getters, respectively, in the June primary race for County Supervisor District 3. The runoff election that decides the winner will be held Nov. 2.
Each candidate offers voters a clear, distinct choice on issues such as public safety. Hertzberg, who has secured the endorsement of the area’s law enforcement leaders, has advocated for sustained police presence in L.A. communities while Horvath led efforts to decrease West Hollywood’s allotted budget for the Sheriff’s Department.
The position they seek is a powerful one, overseeing the sprawling Third District of L.A. County which spans the San Fernando Valley, Malibu and Hollywood. Supervisor Sheila Kuehl, who has endorsed Horvath, chose not to run for re-election to the position.
“I’m eager to engage with Malibu and all third district voters on the issues that matter most,” Horvath said in a statement.
“I’m looking forward to an important discussion on how we can move our community forward,” Hertzberg said.
The forum will be shown on the Malibu Democratic Club YouTube Channel at 2 p.m. July 31.
