** THERE’S ONLY ONE WEEK 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 The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department has been under the leadership of an incompetent manager for far too long.
Be sure to study the candidates like you are interviewing them for a job (you are!).
To date, there have been a number of debates at various venues throughout Los Angeles County. 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 Sheriff’s Department.
