There are three candidates running for the L.A. County Sheriff position: two department veterans, Bob Lindsey and Alex Villanueva, and incumbent Sheriff Jim McDonnell.
In the coming month ahead of the June 5 primary, we’ll do interviews with all of them.
Today, Larry Mantle sits down with candidate Bob Lindsey, a retired Commander of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, where he served for 32 years. He worked as the Department’s Director of Personnel for five of those years. Now, he wants to return to the department and says he wants to make it more transparent.
We’ll discuss how Lindsey plans to achieve this, as well as his other goals for the L.A. County Sheriff’s department, should he win the seat, as well as his critiques of the current leadership and the other candidates.
