Bobby Shriver is campaigning for a seat on the LA County Board of Supervisors, a powerful position that shapes the allocation of $25 billion in annual spending. The position hasn't been open in nearly 20 years, and the contest is fierce between Shriver and his opponent, Sheila Kuehl.
Shriver, nephew of former President John F. Kennedy, has served in Santa Monica as a council member and as the mayor. In addition, he has experience in various sectors, including venture capital, entertainment, law, and non-profit international aid programs. But despite his family legacy and extensive experience, the election is going to come down to who can convince voters that they are the right one for the job.
Yesterday, Larry spoke with Kuehl about her candidacy. Today, he checks in with Shriver.
With large budgets come large decisions. What do you want the Board of Supervisors to prioritize?
