Councilmember Lindsey Horvath declared victory Thursday over Sen. Bob Hertzberg in the race for County Supervisor, as the county continued to count votes.
As of Thursday, Horvath was 19,542 votes ahead of Hertzberg, with a total of 227,561 to his 208,019.
She released the following statement:
“I am humbled and honored that the voters have chosen me to serve as their next Supervisor. Their confidence and support fueled our people-powered campaign across the finish line, and I could not be more grateful for the opportunity to represent the people of District 3.
The significance of this victory is not lost on me. Voters chose a new path forward – a path where we humanely and effectively solve our homelessness crisis, a path where we invest in meaningful public safety solutions, a path where we fight unequivocally for full reproductive freedom, and a path where we urgently protect our environment and create a sustainable future for generations to come.
I would not be here without the countless women that paved this path for me today. I especially want to thank Supervisor Sheila Kuehl for her support and confidence. Because of them, I will soon become the youngest elected woman to serve on the Board of Supervisors, while maintaining the all-female board that we fought so hard to gain. At this critical juncture in Los Angeles’ history, I am proud to bring a new perspective to the Board as a renter, as a millennial, and as a staunch believer that the solutions we are looking for are rooted right in our own communities.
I extend my deepest, heartfelt thanks and endless gratitude to our supporters, our volunteers, our campaign team, and the voters of District 3. Thank you for making this possible.
I want to thank Senator Bob Hertzberg for his incredibly generous and kind phone call, for his commitment to public service, and for engaging in this hard fought campaign to make Los Angeles a better place. I welcome his supporters into the work we will all need to do together. Regardless of who you voted for, I will always work my heart out to represent you and the best interests of our communities.
Together, I know we can meet this moment and deliver on the solutions that will allow Los Angeles County to realize our full potential.”
Well, lookee here. Lyndsey wins, Yosemite Sam loses, and Caruso loses. And in a parting shot to the citizens of the surrounding areas, Rick sets off the longest and loudest fireworks at his Xmas tree lighting in ages. Boy, you at Wehoville and your nasty fans sure can pick ’em! Sanity prevails.
Great news for all of Los Angeles County.
A true defeat for NIMBY-ism and Big Oil.
Congrats to the Power of LA! I just call it “INVENTING LINDSEY”….Anna Sorokin started the movement, so the glasses, the polished wardrobe and the stepping stones to larger travel expense accounts, larger salaries, larger elitism private parties, and larger contacts will just be another ladder as Anna only served two years, so millenials know the rest of the leadership are just “basic bitches” and “old hags” so of course she will be your next Congresswoman or Governor, get ready or are you that naive??? She has caused some severe damages in some places no one will care about or know… Read more »
The mug shot of Anna Sorokin looks alarmingly like Lindsey Horvath.
I hope they enjoy their new county supervisor.
Treacherous being she is.
All women she notes. Well there’s diversity for you. Four white women and one Hispanic. Hell would be raised if all men, right?
yup, totally lacking in diversity.
Balance is the key. The concept of feminism was always a poor one. However in her personal/civic life she seems to prefer the Ruler/King/Czarina 👑approach built on the backs of Serfs. Montemayor & Erickson have been her effective Serfs. 🙄 😢😢😢
Was the concept of feminism a poor one?
As a successful female in many professional disciplines, I believe it was.
Little do the citizens of District 3 know that Horvath’s new path forward is a dark tunnel with a training headed straight at them. Lindsay Horvath is a disaster in the making. Just look at the debris she left in her wake in West Hollywood.
Congratulations, Supervisor Horvath. What an amazing accomplishment!
She won because of the LA Times endorsement. Simple as that.
Glad she can no longer hurt the people of West Hollywood.
West Hollywood is a part of the County of Los Angeles. She can still and WILL hurt us.
I’m confused by the political bullpucky, when she says “voters chose a new path forward” is that to be read literally as a repudiation of Sheila Kuehl? Why do we let public servants talk out of both sides of their mouths and get away with it. Words matter. What are you saying, Linds?
Lindsey Hovath”s “new path forward” literally constructed over the bodies of the many residents in West Hollywood whom she artfully betrayed. Lacking in integrity at every level folks like Horvath are eventually exposed but not until damage has Ben done.
You don’t deserve this! You’re not in it for the people, you’re in it for yourself! West Hollywood knows you and Los Angeles county will come to know you. Unfortunately, it will be too late. You’ll already have done your damage. And the people of LA County will come to regret electing you as the people of West Hollywood have.
Worst possible news. So disgusted.
