    New Sheriff in Town – Alex Villanueva Concedes After Brutal Defeat by Robert Luna

    - Advertisement -

    “I want to wish the incoming sheriff well,” said soon-to-be-former Sheriff of Los Angeles County Alex Villanueva via a press conference today. “I want him to succeed for a simple reason, the safety of the community depends on him succeeding, the welfare of every single person in the department depends on him succeeding.”

    Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk posted the most recent update today, November 15, 2022 2:41:22 p.m. Villanueva’s opponent has received over 1 million votes, currently standing at 1,040,727 to the incumbent who has fallen short at 693,527 votes

    Luna will take the reins of the Sheriff’s Department in the coming months. “Thank you L.A. County,” he said via statement on his social media platforms. “I’m deeply honored and humbled that you have elected me as your next Sheriff. With your vote, you have entrusted me with a clear mandate to bring new leadership and accountability to the Sheriff’s Department.”

    He also offered the outgoing sheriff and his family “best wishes.”

    Mr. Luna, 56, grew up in East Los Angeles and had worked for the Long Beach Police Department for three decades. A longtime Republican, he switched to no party preference a few years ago and then registered as a Democrat in 2020 and campaigned this year for the nonpartisan office as the antithesis to Sheriff Villanueva.

    Sheriff Alex Villanueva is the 33rd Sheriff of Los Angeles County and a 35-year veteran of the Department. He currently commands the largest Sheriff’s Department in the United States. He was the first candidate to defeat an incumbent sheriff in more than 100 years. Now Luna becomes the second to stake claim of this achievement.

    Such a shame. He was hard on crime, and he was not a pawn of the city council. They couldn’t control him so they turned on him. And now we have a sheriff that was backed by the union. Good luck to us.

    Good riddance. The rules did not apply to this P*G! West Hollywood residents suffered for it like all those times he went against LA County mandates and refused to enforce mask wearing during COVID. Then there’s all the drama with his handling of the George Floyd riots. I’m happy to see him go. Screw him. And shame on the people who supported him when all the evidence against him was so blatant.
