LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Bobby Shriver, the former Santa Monica mayor and the nephew of President John F. Kennedy, has entered the race for Los Angeles County supervisor.
Shriver says he wants to tackle tough problems in the county of 10 million people, which suffers from strangled traffic and a rising homeless rate.
In a statement to reporters Tuesday he says he comes from a family tradition “of making a difference in people's lives.”
The 59-year-old Shriver is seeking to represent a district of 2 million residents stretching from the Pacific Ocean to Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley.
Other candidates include former state lawmaker Sheila Kuehl, West Hollywood Councilman John Duran and former Malibu Mayor Pamela Conley Ulich.
He is the eldest child of the late R. Sargent Shriver and Eunice Kennedy Shriver.
