Does LA County need more supervisors?

Los Angeles County is the most populous county in the United States. More than a quarter of Californians live there and most of its residents, some 60 percent, are Latino. But only one of the five LA County Board of Supervisors is Latino – Gloria Molina. Supervisor Molina was elected to the board over two decades ago, after the U.S. Justice Department got involved in redistricting and said that not creating a Latino seat would violate the Voting Rights Act.
