Video: County Supervisor Returns To Her Child Star Roots To Promote Expo Line
L.A. County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl—who is apparently also a former child star, best known for her role teen genius Zelda Gilroy in The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis—has starred in a short comic video promoting the Expo Line Extension, which opens Friday. As you probably know, I hate everyone and everything... but this video is objectively kind of amazing.
Kuehl has a long history of being rad, cemented in 1994 when she became the first openly gay California legislator. She was also the first woman in California to be named Speaker pro Tempore of the state assembly, in 1997. The supervisor for the 3rd District returns to her comedic roots in the minute-long, partially animated video, which features her riding the Expo while extolling its virtues (Take your bike! You can nap here! You can relax here!).
Honestly, you should probably just watch it.
