LA County Supervisor Janice Hahn has fired off a response to a recently published Letter to the Editor, submitted by Carson Mayor Albert Robles. Robles’ letter first appeared in the Los Cerritos News.
Mayor Robles’ op-ed is either misinformed or intentionally misleading.
When Sheriff Villanueva was elected, my colleagues and I congratulated him and offered him our support. I even spoke at his swearing in. Many of the policies and principles that he ran on are ones that I agree with, and I wanted very much to see him succeed in this role.
However, my interest in seeing the Sheriff succeed does not mean that I will not criticize him if and when I believe he is doing something against the public good. That was the case when my colleagues and I intervened to reverse the Sheriff’s decision to rehire a deputy who had been fired for stalking, harassing an ex-girlfriend, breaking into her home, and lying about it.Janice Hahn
