Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky represents one of the most economically and geographically diverse of the county’s five electoral districts—spanning eastward from the Pacific, across the Santa Monica Mountains and into Los Angeles' Westside, San Fernando Valley and Hollywood.
Prior to his election to the Board of Supervisors in 1994, Zev served for nearly 20 years on the Los Angeles City Council. There, and in his current position, he earned a reputation as a fiscal leader and strong advocate for the environment, the arts and the homeless. Since his earliest days in elective office, he also has been a leader in pursuing creative approaches to the region’s transportation problems.
Zev graduated from Fairfax High School and earned bachelors and masters degrees from UCLA.
