A coalition of Asian Pacific Islander groups waded into the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors' political redistricting fight Wednesday, backing a plan by member Don Knabe, a white Republican from Cerritos they say has supported them. By siding with Knabe, the groups joined opponents of two proposals seeking to create a second Latino-majority district on the five-member board. Such plans would undercut Asian American influence in county government, they argued. "You can entertain a majority district for Latinos, but … it's at our expense," said Herb Hatanaka, a board member of the Asian Pacific Policy and Planning Council, a coalition of 40 nonprofit groups that provide health, job counseling and other social services.

Antonovich said he expected county jails to quickly run out of space if they must continue to handle the 7,000 low-level felons that courts normally send to state prison each year.

Antonovich, whose campaigns are heavily financed by industry and developers, lives in Glendale and could not care less about the Santa Monica National Parklands or, for that matter, the increasing traffic congestion on our roads, which development will only worsen.
