RIVERSIDE COUNTY ELECTION UPDATE #2


CRIME VICTIMS GROUPS ENDORSE JEFFRIES
Befuddled Buster Continues False Attacks – Part 2

 
CRIME VICTIMS GROUPS ENDORSE JEFFRIES!  More good campaign news this week, as two statewide organizations, the Crime Victims Action Alliance and the Citizens for Law and Order, both endorsed Kevin this week, citing his opposition to realignment, among other issues.  Click here to read the full press release. 


BEFUDDLED BUSTER – Part 2. With the 20 year incumbent’s campaign in its death throes, a befuddled Bob Buster is throwing mud at Kevin Jeffries from every direction he can to try to save his job, without any regard whatsoever for the consistency, accuracy, or hypocrisy of his own attacks.  In the last update we provided three examples of the factually challenged Buster claims. Here’s a few more for those of you receiving his attacks in the mail:
 
> Buster claims Kevin’s campaign is funded by public employee unions.

The Truth:  Public employee unions spent hundreds of thousands of dollars trying to beat Kevin in the June election, and none of those unions have contributed to the Jeffries campaign for the November runoff.  The one professional employee association that has supported Kevin from the beginning is the Riverside County Deputy District Attorneys, a group dedicated to keeping our communities safe.

On the other hand, Buster's campaign financial reports show that Buster has actually received sizable contributions from seven (7) separate unions since his re-election in June 2008. 
 
> Buster claims Kevin supported 34 “Job Killing” bills.
 
The Truth: The Press Enterprise declared the job-killer attack “false”.  Buster has
apparently decided to side with big Banks by attempting to label Kevin’s support of major foreclosure reform (known as the “California Homeowner’s Bill of Rights”) as a job killer.  

> Buster claims Kevin wasted taxpayer money to notify citizens about Town Hall meetings.

The Truth: On the very day a Buster campaign hit piece attacked Kevin for previously having invited constituents to a town hall meeting on the new (illegal) rural fire tax and a senior seminar on avoiding financial scams, Buster was actually using county tax dollars to mail thousands of residents an invitation to an event “Sponsored by Supervisor Bob Buster”.

Kevin’s invitations were sent more than two months before the election, as required by state law, while Buster’s tax-funded mailer was sent just 12 days before Election Day!

> Buster claims he did NOT vote to support a state realignment plan that would increase our taxes by billions of dollars each year and move state prisoners to our overcrowded County jails.

The Truth: The official minutes of the Board of Supervisors meeting held on March 22, 2011 clearly states that Bob Buster voted to SUPPORT the State realignment plan.  The Riverside County Resolution, #2011-078 passed on a 3-2 vote, with Buster casting the deciding vote.
 
> Buster claims Kevin did NOT vote on 300 bills during 2011/12.
 
The Truth: Kevin led a five year battle to require that our state Lawmakers be given time to read bills before being required to vote on them. (The Californian April 11, 2012)  With thousands of votes each session, Jeffries refused to vote on many bills until he knew the contents. 

On a personal note, Kevin had to miss votes to care for his wife after she had surgery and could not be on her feet.  Then in 2012, Kevin flew home and missed votes to be with his 79 year old father after emergency heart surgery. Buster is not only attacking Kevin for leading an important reform and transparency effort – but for also being a caring Husband and Son. 


It really is remarkable that Bob is so desperate in these final weeks to find a way to keep his job, that amongst his other hypocrisies and lies, he can’t even decide whether to attack Kevin for being too liberal or too conservative for the district!  The truth is that Kevin is “none of the above.” 

Kevin Jeffries enjoys a broad base of support ranging from the highest elected Democrat and Republican leaders in Western Riverside County to non-partisan city council, school and water board members.  They all agree that the First District office is ready for new leadership.
