One day after winning the election for the 2nd District seat on the LA County Board of Supervisors, the heavily union supported Mark Ridley-Thomas set his agenda that included "better compensation for county workers and a pledge to reopen Martin Luther King Jr.-Harbor Hospital by January 2010," the LA Times reports.

Best of all, it seems Ridley-Thomas is ready to work and get things done, even if that means stirring the pot with the simplest of things that should be done anyway. "There has been some trepidation on the board when it comes to setting timetables, but I don't know how you get things done if you don't have benchmarks," he said.
