Candidates for the office of Sheriff of Los Angeles County will speak to the public at an open forum in advance of the upcoming election. The Forum will be held on Thursday, April 19, 2018 at 7:30 pm. at Hollywood Temple Beth El.
In addition to issues of greater Los Angeles County, there are issues specific to West Hollywood which contracts with the Sheriff’s Department for the city’s law enforcement.

Participating in the forum is retired Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Commander Robert "Bob" Lindsey and retired Sheriff’s Lieutenant Alex Villanueva. Incumbent Sheriff Jim McDonald has not yet responded to the invitation to appear.
The candidates will deliver a statement of their qualifications and positions and the microphone will be open to the audience to address specific questions to each candidate.

The election will be held June 5, 2018.
