It is a political race to fill one of the most influential seats in the nation, of a county larger than eight states - District 2 of the Los Angeles County of the Board of Supervisors.

    Herb Wesson is a mess been running around changing office as he terms out to do the next job. This guy made millions with his pay to play politics . This guy should be headed to jail for obstruction and corruption. He never misses the moves of a true panderer . Never vote for him ever.

    I think I'm leaning more towards Holly. I mean, you can never truly trust politicians, but I appreciate her saying off top that Alex V. has gotta go rather than dancing around it, which I felt like Wesson did...but I could be wrong!

    It is hard enough to get police who have done wrong out, so for him to bring back 3 of them...I remember that and it was a slap in the face to all Los Angelenos. He made a statement that he is going to do what he wants.

    Sheriff Villanueva is not having our county look like Portland, Oregon or Seattle AKA CHAZZ, and for that I’m happy. These so called leaders don’t speak for me.
