UCLA to hold debate for L.A. County supervisor candidates

Former state legislator Sheila Kuehl and former Santa Monica Mayor Bobby Shriver will square off in a debate for the District 3 seat on the powerful five-member Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. The winner of the Nov. 4 general election will replace outgoing Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky.

The candidate forum — hosted by UCLA in partnership with the Los Angeles Business Council and the Century City Chamber of Commerce — will be moderated by Conan Nolan, KNBC-TV’s chief political reporter. It will focus on matters crucial to the district, including transportation and economic development.

The forum will be live streamed on the NBC4 Los Angeles website.

The Board of Supervisors controls a $26 billion budget and represents roughly 10 million people in 88 cities in L.A. County. The third supervisorial district includes Westwood; the Westside of Los Angeles, running west from the Santa Monica Mountains to the Ventura County line; and the San Fernando Valley east to Atwater Village.
