"If there is really a single word that describes Mark Ridley-Thomas, that is service," Dr. Soon-Shiong said. "Mark Ridley-Thomas is someone who gets things doneHe understands completely that all that matters is results."

Supervisor Ridley-Thomas has served the community as a teacher, a community leader, a member of the Los Angeles City Council, a member of the California Senate and since 2008 as a county supervisor.
