Don Knabe seeking fifth term

LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe announced Wednesday the launch of his campaign website, is seeking his fifth and final term representing the fourth district. "I have been fortunate to represent the citizens of the fourth district and the people of Los Angeles County," said Knabe. "We've been able to accomplish a lot of good things together, but we still have a lot of work to do. I want people to visit not just to see the good we've done but also to see the issues we face and my plans to address those issues." The website touts many of Knabe's most significant achievements such as his much-lauded "Safe Surrender" program that ha saved the lives of 86 newborns since its inception. The website also examines the key issues facing L.A. County and the fourth district, including jobs, the economy, public safety and transportation. "We're going through some tough times and we have tough decisions ahead of us to make sure that our citizens have good jobs, safe neighborhoods and access to the services the county has committed to provide," Knabe said. Long Beach Councilman Gary DeLong offered his support for Knabe. "We've been lucky to have Don Knabe representing us in L.A. County," said DeLong. "He's a man whose door is always open. Don is a true public servant and we're thankful he's agreed to continue serving the people of this area." Despite his strong support in the fourth district, Knabe insists he is not taking anything for granted. "That's why we're getting going now, so that people know I'm ready to tackle the issues facing L.A. County and that I intend to continue to serve the people of the fourth district." The fourth district stretches from Marina Del Rey through Palos Verdes to Long Beach and Downey, and extends east to Diamond Bar. The district also includes Catalina Island and San Clemente Island.
