Sebastian Ridley-Thomas, the son of county Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, followed in his dad's footsteps and was elected tonight to the state Assembly in a special election on the Westside and points south. SRT's father served in the Assembly and state Senate after doing a few terms on the Los Angeles City Council. He eventually moved to the Board of Supes. Running out of landing spots!
Sebastian is 26 and has been an aide to Councilman Curren Price. The race wasn't close; with about 60% of the vote he should hold on to a majority when provisionals are counted.
