Michael Dennis Antonovich (born August 12, 1939) is an American politician who was Mayor of Los Angeles County and a member of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.

He represented the Fifth District, which covers northern Los Angeles County, including the Antelope Valley, Santa Clarita, Pasadena, and parts of the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys.

Antonovich was born in Los Angeles, California, and attended Thomas Alva Edison Junior High, where one of his classmates was Henry Waxman.


He graduated from John Marshall High School and enlisted in the United States Army Reserve in 1957.


A member of Sigma Nu fraternity, Antonovich graduated from California State University, Los Angeles in 1963 with a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in 1966.

Antonovich taught in the Los Angeles Unified School District and later at Pepperdine University.


In 1969, Antonovich was elected to the newly formed Los Angeles Community College District Board of Trustees.


In 1972, he was elected to the California State Assembly and for three terms represented Glendale, Burbank, Sunland, Tujunga, Atwater, Griffith Park, Lakeview Terrace and Sun Valley.


He served as a Republican whip in the Assembly from 1976 to 1978.


Antonovich ran unsuccessfully for the Republican nomination for Lieutenant Governor of California in 1978 against Mike Curb.

After Curb defeated him in the primary, Antonovich declined to specifically endorse Curb in the general election, but instead endorsed the entire Republican ticket.

Curb defeated incumbent Mervyn Dymally in the general election.


He was Chairman of the Board of Supervisors (to which he was first elected in 1980) in 1983, 1987 and 1991 and as the so-called "Mayor of Los Angeles County" in 1983, 1987, 1991, 2001 and 2006.


In 1984 Antonovich was elected chairman of the California Republican Party and served for two years.


He ran for the U.S. Senate in 1986 in a three-way primary.

Antonovich received the endorsement of television evangelist Pat Robertson.

He and Bruce Herschensohn were unsuccessful, and Ed Zschau went on to lose to the incumbent, Alan Cranston.

Antonovich lost the San Fernando Valley to Herschensohn.


On February 15, 1998, he married Christine Hu Huiling, a Mandarin-speaking actress from Dalian, China, before 900 guests; Red Buttons and Pat Boone were lay lectors.


Engineers had determined in a 1999 report that the preferred route for a bullet train between Los Angeles and San Francisco would be the most direct through the Tejon Pass.

However, Antonovich argued that the train should be diverted through the Mojave Desert communities of Lancaster and Palmdale in his district, which was estimated to increase the cost of the project by 16%.

Critics described the change as political horse-trading that raised the cost and complexity of the project and sacrificed travel time.

In a 2022 report, the New York Times linked the maneuver to a connection between Antonovich and real estate developer Jerry Epstein.

Antonovich objected to the appointment of Duke University professor Erwin Chemerinsky to be dean of the new law school at the University of California, Irvine, and lobbied against it.

The university rescinded the appointment, then later restored it.

Antonovich served nine four-year terms on the Board of Supervisors and served until 2016, when a limit of three consecutive terms imposed by voters in 2002 forced him to leave office.


In 2017, Antonovich learned through an DNA test that he had fathered a son, Dwight Manley, who was born in 1965 and placed for adoption.
