Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich responded to very early election numbers with enthusiasm and gratitude.

“I deeply appreciate the vote of confidence and the opportunity to continue representing the over two million residents on the Board of Supervisors,” he said.

“Over the past eight terms, my office has empowered our unincorporated communities with a voice and supported public safety, foster youth and municipal services.”

At 72, Antonovich remains one of the county’s longest serving supervisors.

Earlier in the day, the Republican incumbent did his part as a voter in the primary election and cast his vote in Glendale at the Incarnation Community Center there.

He cast his vote alongside his wife, Christine, and their children, Michael Jr. and Mary Christine.

In his latest re-election campaign, Antonovich ran against only one opponent, 49-year-old Palmdale businessman Raj Pal Kahlon.

Antonovich listed the following under his accomplishments: rebuilding Olive View Hospital after the Sylmar earthquake, building the Antelope Valley Courthouse, creating the Los Angeles County High School of the Arts and removing guns from convicted felons through the DISARM program.

“By consolidating county departments,” he said. “The Quality and Productivity Commission I initiated has saved taxpayers over $4 billion.

“We enhanced the Fire Department’s air support, and will continue to construct new fire stations,” he said in a prepared statement.

“Initiating the restaurant and nursing home grading systems protects public health and enhances quality care. To expand recreational opportunities for equestrians and hikers, we increased open space, parks and trails.”
