Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, the region's largest union voice, gave its official "enthusiastic" endorsement of former state lawmaker Sheila Kuehl in her campaign for Los Angeles County supervisor.
Rank-and-file members representing a range of organized workers across the county -- including teachers, lifeguards, nurses, bus drivers and grocery and hotel workers -- voted to give the endorsement. . . . . . . .
Kuehl and former Santa Monica City Council member Bobby Shriver, both Democrats, are seeking Zev Yaroslavsy's nonpartisan seat on the Board of Supervisors in the Nov. 4 election. Yaroslavsky is retiring due to term limits
Shriver also sought the County Fed's endorsement. He's been backed by a trade union and by several groups representing business interests. The L.A. County Federation of Labor represents about 800,000 workers countywide.
