Supervisor Kevin Jeffries has long been one of the few members of the Riverside County Board of Supervisors to consistently champion limited, fiscally responsible government.

First elected to the Board of Supervisors in 2012, Jeffries has been a reliable defender of taxpayer interests in the county, especially in comparison to his colleagues.

Over the years, Jeffries has pushed for more transparency and a more robust budget process, called for streamlining county functions and long ago resolved Riverside County’s dubious distinction of being one of the last holdouts on allowing food trucks to operate in the county.

With recent changes in the Board of Supervisors following the retirements of long-time board members John Tavaglione and Marion Ashley, Jeffries, now the most senior member of the board, has an opportunity to exert needed influence on the direction of the county.

Riverside County’s fiscal and governmental problems are far from news. For too long, the county has followed a familiar pattern of constantly forecasting challenging times ahead, making just enough tweaks and adjustments to get by and then repeating the process again and again.
