Get Ready to Vote on Key Issues Important to Our Community
Here are a few:
Measure A authorizes the removal of a sheriff, by 4/5th vote of the Board of Supervisors, if they commit serious violations of the public trust — like breaking the law, stealing county funds, obstructing investigations into deputy misconduct, or failing to stop deputy gangs from brutalizing our communities.
- A Yes vote would give the board the ability to take action against the sheriff
- A No vote would not change anything and keep the status quo as is
Los Angeles County Sheriff - The Sheriff’s Department, the largest in the country, is headed by a single elected official who oversees all aspects of the department and it’s nearly $4B budget.
- The current Sheriff, Alex Villanueva, has served since 2018
- Former Long Beach Police Chief Robert Luna, is running against him.
California State Attorney General - The Statewide election for State Attorney General is also taking place. The Attorney General is the state’s top lawyer, and is responsible for representing the state in lawsuits, ensuring the civil rights of all Californians, and broader criminal investigations. The AG also runs the CA Department of Justice, giving them immense power to enforce and enact the laws passed by the state.
- The current AG, Rob Bonta, was appointed to the position by Governor Newsom after his predecessor, Xavier Becerra, was tapped by President Biden to head up the Federal Department of Health and Human Services.
- His opponent, Nathan Hochman, is a civil litigator who is a “tough on crime” candidate.
