A measure to make California county governments more representative, accessible, and accountable to the populations that they serve was introduced today by Senator Tony Mendoza (D-Artesia).

“Accountability and transparency are critical to the functioning of government, be it at the state, local, or federal levels,” Senator Mendoza said. “It has been over one hundred and fifty years since the county system of government was introduced. California, especially Southern California, has changed so dramatically and it is imperative to adjust how a Board of Supervisors is structured for large, urban counties.”

Late Thursday came potentially upbeat news for some on the state’s deep bench: Legislation that would create one of the most powerful elected positions in California – county executive of Los Angeles.
