Riverside County Ready For New Leadership
Just Over 50 Days To Go!
RIVERSIDE. In just over 50 days, Riverside County First District voters will have a chance to shake up an entrenched bureaucracy! For 20 years, Incumbent Bob Buster has had his chance to improve job opportunities and our quality of life in Riverside County. Instead, relations with local community and business leaders are strained or non-existent, private property rights have been violated with his support, convicted felons are being given early release from our county jails, law enforcement patrols have been cut, and average citizens cannot get their phone calls returned from the First District office.
Here are just a few of the differences between the 20 year incumbent Bob Buster and Kevin Jeffries:
#1. Bob Buster cast the deciding vote to endorse and support a state plan which has resulted in the early release of thousands of convicted criminals back into our communities (Riverside County Resolution #2011-078). Kevin Jeffries voted to OPPOSE this misguided soft-on-crime plan.
#2. Bob Buster cast the deciding vote to endorse and support a state plan to increase your car tax, sales tax and income taxes (Riverside County Resolution #2011-078). Kevin Jeffries voted to OPPOSE the tax increases, saving families nearly $1,000 a year!
#3. At a time when County Supervisors were paying lobbyists $730,000 a year with little to show for it, Bob Buster voted to cut frontline sheriff and fire services. Kevin Jeffries will put public safety first, and cut the taxpayer funded lobbyists.
#4. Bob Buster claims to be a pension reformer, yet he has amassed the LARGEST County Supervisor pension in the history of Riverside County. If he is elected to a 6th term, his pension could grow even larger! Kevin Jeffries will NOT accept a taxpayer-backed pension just for being elected to office!
#5. Under Bob Buster’s leadership, our county is now $1.6 billion in debt and it will take 30 years to pay it back. Buster dismissed our $1.6 billion debt as “not exorbitant” (Press Enterprise 8/8/12). Kevin is endorsed by the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association and will protect taxpayers!
