Supervisors Doreen Farr and Steve Lavagnino this week threw their political weight behind Sheriff Bill Brown (pictured) in his June 3 election battle against challenger Sgt. Sandra Brown. In a prepared statement, Farr called Brown an “experienced leader” whose “leadership has proven invaluable during the last few years of economic hardships for the county.” Lavagnino, running unopposed in June, praised the sheriff for securing state funding for the planned North County Jail — $80 million for construction costs and $39 million for a recidivism-reducing wing — saying the facility wouldn’t be close to fruition without Brown’s “foresight and leadership.”
