Bob Lindsey was recently endorsed by the Los Angeles Sentinel, LA’s leading newspaper serving the African American community–and particularly influential in South LA, Inglewood and Compton.
This endorsement is also newsworthy because, as LASD.News reported yesterday, Lindsey has been present, and earned tremendous support, in the African American community in Jim McDonnell’s four-year absence.
McDonnell was also absent from the last debate among candidates for sheriff two weeks ago at Ward AME Church near USC. In fact, McDonnell has skipped all of the debates for sheriff.
It is also newsworthy because the Sentinel endorsed McDonnell four years ago but has now decided he is no longer the right man for the job. And that Bob Lindsey is.
