Perez may seek county seat
Special to the Times

Assemblymember V. Manuel Perez has launched an exploratory committee for the office of Riverside County Supervisor, District 4. The election will be held in a June primary in 2014.

A lifelong resident of Riverside County, Perez was born and raised by immigrant farmworkers in Coachella. A former school teacher and community health director, Perez was first elected into the California State Assembly in 2008, winning a seat controlled by Republicans for the previous 14 years. Prior to that he served as a school board trustee for Coachella Valley Unified School District from 2004-2008.

He currently resides in Coachella with his wife and two sons, all of whom were born and raised in the Coachella Valley. In the past nine years as a policymaker, Perez said he has made it a responsibility and obligation to be consistent, transparent, bipartisan and accessible to his constituency.

"Today, I am announcing the formation of Exploratory Committee for Supervisor 2014." said Pérez. "After being approached and encouraged by respected community members from public safety, labor, education, renewable energy, tribes, business, health care providers and grassroots leaders, I was truly humbled and at the same time felt compelled to explore a potential candidacy for Riverside County Supervisor, District 4. I appreciate the continued voter confidence from my constituents. I am looking forward to continue my discussions with community members in order to preserve a healthy and high quality of life for Riverside County and its future generations."

The 4th Supervisorial District is comprised of cities of Blythe, Cathedral City, Coachella, Desert Hot Springs, Indian Wells, Indio, La Quinta, Palm Desert, Palm Springs, and Rancho Mirage. Unincorporated areas in the District include Bermuda Dunes, Chiriaco Summit, Colorado River Communities, Desert Center, Desert Edge, Desert Palms, Indio Hills, Lake Tamarisk, Eagle Mountain, Mecca, Mesa Verde, North Shore, Oasis, Ripley, Sky Valley, Thermal, Thousand Palms, and Vista Santa Rosa.
