Latest updates from the campaign:
On Tuesday, Former Sheriff Alex Villanueva announced he will look to unseat Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn in next year's election.
"The Board of Supervisors has a responsibility to provide for the health, safety and welfare of the county," Villanueva said during a press conference Wednesday. "In that regard, they have failed absolutely miserably."
“The department that I left behind in 2022 was not the department of 2018,” Villanueva said.
He helped improve every single facet of the organization when he entered office in 2018, according to him. He said that ranged from the care inmates got to prevent them from catching COVID-19 to the violence going on within the jails.
Villanueva added that the steps he implemented led to deputies regaining control over jails.
In his chat with Cohen, the former sheriff reminisced about his homelessness cleanups. He said that type of enforcement works, but only under a watchful eye because homeless residents return to their spots. But, cleanups like the one we saw in Venice have become controversial.
