Assemblyman Richard Bloom (D-Santa Monica) has suspended his campaign for the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors 3rd District, and will not appear on the June primary ballot.
“After a great deal of thought and discussion with my family and advisors, I have decided to end my campaign for supervisor and focus on serving my constituents for the remainder of my final term in the state Assembly,” Bloom said in a statement. “I am very proud of the campaign we ran, and I am grateful to everyone who helped to build it. I believe that the future of Los Angeles County is bright, and that our communities can and will solve the challenges we face. I am as committed as ever to working for that future, but I am going to take some time to decide how I can best be of service.”
Since 2012, Bloom has represented the 50th Assembly District, which includes Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, West Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Malibu and Agoura Hills.
Other candidates running for the Board of Supervisors 3rd District office include West Hollywood City Councilwoman Lindsey Horvath, and California Sens. Robert Hertzberg and Henry Stern.
