Antonovich claims nearly 80 percent of vote

County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich collected nearly 80 percent of the vote in the primary election on Tuesday, and is poised to become one of Los Angeles County’s longest-serving supervisors.

At age 72, Antonovich, who was first elected to the Board of Supervisors in 1980, would be termed out of office in 2016 if he wins in November.
Only Kenny Hahn, who served on the board from 1952 to 1992, would have a longer career as a supervisor.

Antonovich received 79.35 percent of the vote in Tuesday’s primary election. Challenger Raj Pal Kahlon, a 49-year-old Palmdale businessman, received 20.65 percent of the vote.

Antonovich has been a strong voice for conservative spending on the Board of Supervisors; this priority has helped the county weather the last several years of legislative budget cuts to counties throughout California.
