State Sen. Holly J. Mitchell announced Thursday that she is entering the race for the 2nd District seat on the Board of Supervisors.
“I have never backed down from doing what is right and necessary,” Mitchell said in an email to supporters Thursday morning. “I believe in the best Los Angeles County has to offer and I am willing to fight for it. This is why I am running for county supervisor.”
The 2nd District stretches from Culver City to Carson and encompasses about half of the county’s black population. Political veterans Councilman Herb Wesson former Councilmember Jan Perry are also competing for the seat. Mark Ridley Thomas is the current 2nd District Supervisor.
