Antonovich will fill the role through 2006. Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky will serve as mayor pro tem. During the meeting Tuesday, one resident voiced concern over Antonovich’s calling himself mayor. “The county of Los Angeles, the people, have stated in the County Charter that we shall have a five-member Board of Supervisors,” said Peter Baxter. “The city of Los Angeles Charter says we will have a mayor, and you can be a candidate for mayor. In both instances, this is the law, and my impression is that enjoying the style and title of ‘mayor’ is confusing at best and is unlawful at the worst,” Baxter said. Molina ended her term as chairwoman on a lighter note. “In researching and reflecting on the past year, I wanted to make sure that we covered all the major events. In doing so, my staff came across headlines that you may not have seen and after you read them you probably know why,” Molina said. Molina’s presentation included several mock headlines. One was directed at new Los Angeles City Councilman Herb Wesson who, according to Molina’s headline, was spotted measuring the drapes in Supervisor Yvonne B. Burke’s office. Many speculate that Wesson, a former Burke aide, will run for her seat in 2008.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Antonovich, who plans to be called “county mayor.” The Board of Supervisors, on a motion from Antonovich, had voted 3-2 in 1996 to change the title from board chairman to Los Angeles County mayor. No other supervisor, however, uses the mayor title when chairing the board. County supervisors are effectively mayors for the residents of unincorporated communities in their districts, Antonovich had said in 1996. Antonovich said his goals this year are to improve public safety, transportation, services for the mentally ill and homeless, adoption for foster children and the county’s equestrian and hiking trail system.
