West Hollywood Mayor John D’Amico has endorsed City Councilmember John Duran as a candidate for the 3rd District seat on the L.A. County Board of Supervisors.

Duran and D’Amico have been allies on a number of issues that have come before the City Council against occasional opposition from the other three council members.

Duran faces several opponents in the June 3 primary for the 3rd District seat, which is being vacated by Zev Yaroslavsky because of a limit on the number of terms a supervisor can serve. His most prominent opponents are former Santa Monica Mayor Bobby Shriver, former state Sen. Sheila Kuehl and former Malibu Mayor Pamela Conley Ulich.

In his endorsement, which was delivered as an email message from the Duran campaign, D’Amico said: “John Duran has been on the leading edge of the equality and justice fight for over 25 years and we need his experience, determination, and leadership on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.”

D’Amico also asked for contributions to Duran’s campaign to help fund direct mail and other advertising.

He’s getting endorsements from all these pro business and pro development entities. It makes me laugh and cry at the same time. He went from long shot to a top 3 candidate. We residents know what he’s about and what he’s capable of. It makes me cringe what damage he can do on the County level.

John Duran ruined West Hollywood. I am ashamed that he was on the City Council. He could care less about the residents of West Hollywood. He voted in favor of big business projects and sided with developers that had improper setbacks and code violations. He has always been arrogant and rude. He is the worst candidate for this job. I don’t trust or respect him at all.
