LACDP Chair Mark J Gonzalez responds to 
LA County Supervisors' attempt to Remove Sheriff as head of Emergency Operations
 

LOS ANGELES, CA --  In response to the LA County Board of Supervisors' attempt to remove the Sheriff as the head of emergency operations, Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair Mark J. Gonzalez released the following statement: 

“Timing is everything - especially during a pandemic. The Kathryn Barger-led efforts to remove emergency operations from the Sheriff’s oversight during a crisis is woefully inappropriate and concerning. The time for any personal or petty politics right now is over. It's high time for the Board of Supervisors to be working with Sheriff Villanueva to ensure that LA County residents remain safe, and continue coordinating and supporting LA County health departments, homelessness outreach, housing placement and other emergency services during this time.”
