Lou Vince is a California native who has devoted his life to public service. He attended Western Illinois University, earning a Bachelor’s of Science in Law Enforcement and Justice Administration. It was at this point that Lou decided to enlist in the United States Marine Corps Reserve, feeling an overwhelming need to serve our country.

Lou’s military career brought him back to California, and it was in 1995 that he decided to stay in Los Angeles County to build a career in law enforcement and start a family. Lou began his career with the Los Angeles Police Department where his leadership skills were recognized and he quickly rose through the ranks as a Field Training Officer, Sergeant, Detective Supervisor, and Lieutenant.

He has provided leadership and oversight for many complex law enforcement operations, and he was heavily involved in the opening of the LAPD’s Mission (2005) and Topanga (2009) Police Divisions, openings that today are rare. Lou also served as a Level I Reserve Deputy with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department for four years. In 2010 he completed a Master’s Degree in Criminology, Law and Society from the University of California-Irvine.


In 2006, Lou married his wife, Stacey. They currently have four children, two of which were fostered and adopted through the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services. Lou and his family currently live in Agua Dulce, where he is actively engaged in the community, serving as Team Manager and Coach for Canyon Country Little League Baseball and as an elected member of the Agua Dulce Town Council.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de The League of Women Voters of California Education Fund and California Counts, a public media collaboration. (4)

Should immigration laws be changed?  What changes would you support?  Please explain why.
Respuesta de Lou Vince:

Yes, I believe our immigration system is broken. I've seen the effect first hand of our shattered system on the streets of Los Angeles. I want to see a comprehensive immigration reform plan with a pathway to citizenship. Also, I want to see undocumented residents who were brought here given the right to stay. I also want to tackle wage theft to ensure employers cannot unfairly target workers who are afraid to report these crimes to the authorities out of fear for deportation. Immigration reform will make our country stronger. Our nation is a nation of immigrants and we should embrace our past, not demonize many hard-working members of our society.

The political climate in Washington, D.C. has been extremely partisan in recent years. In that kind of atmosphere, what would you do to get things done while in office?
Respuesta de Lou Vince:

As a police officer for the past 21 years, I'm used to running towards problems - not away from them. I deal with conflict every day on the streets of Los Angeles and I feel I have the perfect training to go to Congress and get things done to make everyone's lives better. I will represent every resident of the 25th District, not my party or any special interests. I am a member of this community and want to represent the values that this community holds dear and fight for our quality of life.

What, if anything, does the U.S. need to do in order to address national security and terrorism? Please explain your answer in detail.
Respuesta de Lou Vince:

Rather than continue to be the world's sole policeman, we need to focus on coalition-builiding and building muliterteral efforts to solve global threats. ISIS is a major threat to many nations, not just the United States. As the world's only superpower, it is our duty to help building an international alliance to address ISIS, not just commit our miltary alone. In addition, climate change is a major issue that threatens the entire planet. Even the US military has released numerous studies calling for action to tackle climate change. Finally, cyber security is a new realm where we need to invest in greater protection. I will champion issues of cyber security in Congress in order to make sure our economy and national security is not at risk of cyber attack.

The Federal Government plays a part in California water allocation and use through a variety of laws.  What, if any, legislation would you support in an effort to handle water shortages caused by the current and any future drought?
Respuesta de Lou Vince:

I believe we need to continue focusing on conservation. I favor the expansion of rebates and incentives for Americans who install water-efficient appliances and drought-tolerant landscaping. In addition, I support the expansion of the use of recycled water. In places like Simi Valley and Moorpark, where groundwater is often brackish and not suitable for drinking, I would favor federal incentives and support to build filtration facilities to rely greater on local resources, rather than expand importation of water from Northern California.
