Los Angeles in Los Angeles County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
The Honorable Edmund D. Edelman
Supervisor, Third District
— Serving from 1974 - 1994 —
Throughout his public life, Edelman's highest priorities always included support for the arts, and for expanding the cultural and recreational opprotunities that, in his words, "...make life in Los Angeles County worth living."
Among his proudest accomplishments are his successful campaign to win County voter approval of the Safe Neighborhood Parks Act of 1992 which provided substantial new funding for the Hollywood Bowl; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and numerous other cultural and recreational facilities throughout the County; his effort to revive the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre as a premier venue for outdoor performances in an intimate natural setting; his establishment of the Hollywood Bowl Museum and Highland Camrose Park; and his participation in the development of the Walt Disney Concert Hall addition to the famed Music Center of Los Angeles County.
