** THERE’S ONLY 21 DAY LEFT UNTIL THE PRIMARY ELECTION TUESDAY, JUNE 3 **
If you are a voter in Los Angeles County, please be sure to vote for LA Sheriff. It is important to all the employees of the LASD that you pick a good boss who will be fair, honest and stand for law and order and the safety of LA County’s residents. #VoteLASheriff
Be sure to study the candidates like you are interviewing them for a job (you are!).
To date, there have been at least 14 debates at various venues. There is another one scheduled for tonight in San Dimas. Be sure to search the web for videos from the debates.
I’m not endorsing any of the candidates as they all have strengths and weaknesses. It’s a tough choice, but it is your responsibility as a voter to choose the new leader for the Sheriffs Department.
