Profession:County Supervisor

 

Los Angeles County Supervisor Antonovich’s public service career has been characterized by his

commitment to public safety, fiscal responsibility, and in supporting small business. He has championed

solutions to address the needs of the County’s foster children, seniors and veterans. And, he has proven skills in working across party lines to get things done!

 

As Supervisor, he led the effort to form the Quality and Productivity Commission which has already saved county taxpayers over $4 billion. Mike also initiated efforts to eliminate duplication of services and the consolidation of county departments to streamline the county bureaucracy. This has resulted in hundreds of millions of dollars in additional cost savings for taxpayers.

 

 

He pushed for expansion of Meghan’s Law to make communities safer from sex offenders and established Disarm, a program to remove guns from convicted criminals.

 

 

Supervisor Antonovich also co-founded the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts located on the CalState LA campus and has been a strong advocate of the expansion of pet adoption programs and dog parks.

 

 As a member of the Board of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and Metrolink, Mike has fought for fair allocation of transportation funds to benefit residents throughout the region. He has provided strong leadership on the Gold Line extension into the San Gabriel Valley and projects to benefit the San Fernando Valley.

 

 

As a former government/history teacher, Mike credits his fifth grade teacher for the inspiration to enter public life. Prior to his election to the Board of Supervisors, Mike was elected to the Los Angeles Community College Board of Trustees and the California State Assembly. 

 

A Los Angeles County native, Mike resides in Glendale with his wife Christine Hu and their 2 children.
