Councilman Hal Bernson has been appointed to the board of the South Coast Air Quality Management District, the agency responsible for ensuring the air is safe to breathe in Los Angeles and nearby counties. To the dismay of some environmentalists who view Bernson as pro-business, Mayor Richard Riordan nominated the northwest Valley councilman to fill a vacancy on the anti-smog board. The appointment was approved by mayors of the AQMD member cities, Bernson announced Thursday.
