ANTONOVICH COMMENTS ON THE PASSING OF ART SNYDER
LOS ANGELES COUNTY — In the tradition of L.A. City Councilman John Holland, whom he served as Field Deputy, Art cared deeply about his constituents and served them admirably – providing quality municipal services, recreational facilities and libraries in his district. Fighting for increased patrols, emergency services and anti-gang programs, Art was a champion for law enforcement — and believed strongly that public safety should be a top priority.
He was proud of his service in the United States Marine Corps and his education at L.A. City College, Pepperdine University and USC Law School. In his last years, we stayed in touch and I appreciated his friendship and support.
Christine and I send our prayers and condolences to his wife, Delia and his children Neely, Miles and Erin.
