Sheriff Villanueva's recent attacks on Supervisor Solis
 

LOS ANGELES, CA --  In response to recent comments made by Sheriff Villanueva, Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair Mark J. Gonzalez released the following statement: 

“LA County residents are well aware of the fraught relationship between the LA County Board of Supervisors and the Sheriff, and enough is enough. Comments made by Sheriff Villanueva during a recent broadcast towards Supervisor Hilda Solis were highly inappropriate, especially during a time where our leaders are expected to remain focused on the task at hand of keeping Angelenos safe.  I strongly urge Sheriff Villanueva to consider his statements and actions made that could deviate from that task or be misinterpreted. We’ve got a lot of work to to together, and Angelenos do not deserve this distraction"
