LA County Superior Court Judge candidate Albert Robles recently was interviewed by the LA Times for an endorsement that included the most peculiar question about Sheriff Alex Villanueva.
Former Carson Mayor Albert Robles is running for LA County Superior Court Judge seat 156 against 30-year incumbent Judge Elswic in the upcoming June 7 election.
During his recent endorsement meeting with the LA TIMES, questions came up surrounding his previous support of LA County Sheriff Alex Villanueva. Nevertheless, the support of Albert Robles was unwavering.
“What does this have to do with me running for judge,” thought Robles? “Did the LA TIMES editorial board ask previous candidates whether they supported corrupt former Sheriff Lee Baca or any other Sheriff?”
Robles explained that his support stems from the fact that when Sheriff Villanueva was elected, his first order of business was visiting all of the cities who contracted with the Sheriff’s department, which included Carson.
“Besides attending events, no other Sheriff has come to Carson for a ‘meet and greet’ with the residents except for Sheriff Alex Villanueva,” said Robles. “I think that speaks volumes for who Sheriff Alex Villanueva is, and we need leaders that value community input.”
The LA Times has yet to publicly endorse a candidate for LA County Sheriff or LA County Superior Court judge, including the office Albert Robles is running for June 7th, 2022.
