LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Sheriff Alex Villanueva's campaign for reelection has raised more than $1.25 million it was announced today. His campaign has about $1 million on hand and has raised more than $900,000 in 2021.
Villanueva was elected as Los Angeles County Sheriff in 2018 and ran a campaign of ``reform, rebuild and restore.''
Villanueva's campaign expects to report increased fundraising numbers in 2022.
``The public is desperate for solutions to out-of-control homelessness and crime. The three-card Monte game of distraction against the Sheriff by the political establishment has failed. We will win in June,'' Sheriff Villanueva's campaign director, Javier Gonzalez, said. ``The political elite will regret listening to their woke, well-off, privileged staff instead of listening to the concerns of immigrant communities, working class African- Americans, middle class homeowners and small-business owners who have borne the brunt of rising crime and out-of-control homelessness.''
Villanueva is expected to make his first announcement of endorsements and present a full election team in the coming days, according to a release.
