condolences to the family.
I'm curious if you knew him? sounds like he did some good in his time. must have been a republican. ;-)
He was a Republican. Believe it or not, the Republicans controlled the LA County Board of Supervisors for a long stretch of time... the control ended when the Bush 41 Justice Department filed suit, saying the district lines violated the voting rights act - this suit resulted in Gloria Molina's election, and the rest is history.
"I'm curious if you knew him?"
I knew him but not well.
He was a Republican conservative and worked closely with my good friend Mike Antonovitch, County Supervisor, who was left as the last Republican and conservative on the board when Dana left.
Condolences to the family, he was a good man and will be missed.
