Dear Friends & Supporters,
I continue to be humbled by the support the campaign is receiving all across the First District. October was a great month for the campaign and November is already shaping up to be even better! We have several campaign events already on the calendar for November. They include:
Monday November 14th – an evening reception with La Cresta residents & property owners.
Wednesday November 16th – an evening reception hosted by Wildomar Mayor Marsha Swanson.
Thursday November 17th – an evening reception hosted by Scott & Deborah McIntyre of De Luz
If you would like to attend any of these events – please visit the campaign website at: www.KevinJeffries.com or email us at: Chris@KevinJeffries.com. Advance RSVP’s are required.
Additionally, on Thursday November 17th, I will be a guest speaker at the EWDC/Chamber Luncheon held at the Lake Elsinore Storm Stadium, and during the evening of Friday November 18th, I will be meeting with Lakeland Village community leaders.
During October we were incredibly busy visiting with voters from Riverside to Wildomar, from De Luz to Lake Mathews and many stops in between. I have to add a special thank you to Chris (my wife of 29 years) for driving and accompanying me to so many neighborhoods. All told – I think we have visited nearly 3,000 homes!
We also enjoyed several great campaign receptions during October. The Meet & Greet reception at the Canyon Lake Lodge on October 14th and the fund raising reception at the Daley/Castelli residence in Riverside on October 20th were both very well attended by local residents, business leaders and elected officials. Thank you to everyone who attended and to our host committee members and our sponsors!
I have truly enjoyed sharing my campaign theme of More Jobs - Not Taxes! and my vision to position Riverside County to recover from its high unemployment, on-going budget problems, and its general disconnect with taxpayers, community organizations and small businesses struggling to survive. I have already shared with thousands of voters that not only do I oppose a proposal to levy a new tax to pay for basic public safety services (which should already be funded first with our hard earned tax dollars) but I’m also calling for an end to the life-long taxpayer funded pensions for County Supervisors and to dramatically reduce the roughly $140,000 a year pay. It’s time for a change. Serving as an elected official needs to be more about serving the public – and not about obtaining a $100,000 to $139,000 life-long taxpayer funded pension just for being elected! Pension reform starts at the top!
In closing, the June 5th election is now only roughly 6 months away (absentee ballots arrive in May). If you have not already done so – please consider joining with the Riverside County Deputy District Attorney’s Association and the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association and add your name to our growing list of supporters including 7 Mayors, over 60 current & former local elected officials & public safety officials and nearly 100 neighborhood, community and business leaders.
