"After meeting with Alex Villanueva, we discussed a wide range of the responsibilities and the challenges today in criminal justice and what we need to do moving forward in criminal justice reform. I have absolutely no doubt that Mr. Villanueva is absolutely the right person for the job of Los Angeles County Sheriff. He wants to build a community between the Officers and the public by assigning officers to stay in a single community instead of being constantly moved around the entire county day-to-day. The mission here is restoring the trust of the people, I believe Mr. Villanueva has some great ideas that will go along ways to achieving this mission."
