Bobby Shriver, Touting Kennedy Lineage, Joins Supervisor's Race

Kim K alt='Greuel's decision reshapes race to fill L.A. County supervisor seat' style='float:left;padding:5px' /> "And let me tell you, Los Angeles needs that difference." Shriver, 59, the son of Sargent and Eunice Shriver and the nephew of President Kennedy , served eight years on the Santa Monica City Council. He framed the campaign against his leading rival, Sheila Kuehl, as an opportunity for voters to impose change on a panel known for its immense Kim K tape power and limited accountability. Responding later to a question about how he differs from Kuehl, Shriver praised the former state lawmaker from Santa Monica for being "a very positive force" in Sacramento, particularly on view publisher site Santa Monica Mountains conservation. "I've done different things," said Shriver, who has worked as a reporter, lawyer, venture capitalist, film producer and philanthropist. "I haven't been a career legislator" Parke Skelton, a consultant to Kuehl's campaign, said that Kuehl had been a "pathbreaking civil rights attorney" and law professor before she ran for public office. The winner of the race to replace Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky will represent 2 million people in a district that covers much of the Westside and San Fernando Valley. Shriver has said he might put some of his personal wealth into the contest, raising questions about how much he has and how he invests it.
