“I am grateful, blessed and proud to serve as your Riverside County Fourth District Supervisor,” said Supervisor V.

It’s going to be quite a bit of work, whether it’s the issue of the budget, labor negotiations, environmental issues like the Salton Sea, infrastructure, the economic development efforts that are needed here, housing, and homelessness. As a team, we can make some great things happen. The Phenomenal Fourth District team and I look forward to continuing to provide exceptional service and representation to all we serve.”
