Our featured speaker, Riverside County Supervisor of the 4th District, V. Manuel Perez, was appointed by Governor Edmund G. Brown on May 9, 2017. He was subsequently elected to a four-year term in June 2018. Supervisor Perez was born and raised in the Coachella Valley as the son of immigrant farmworkers and attended local public schools and graduated from the University of California Riverside. From 2004-2008 he served on the Coachella Valley Unified School District Board of Trustees then was elected to the California State Assembly. After serving three terms in the State Assembly, Supervisor Perez continued his public service with election to the City Council of Coachella.

With two years under his belt, Supervisor Perez captured his accomplishments over the last two years in office by presenting to our members and guests in attendance. He touched on a multitude of issues including insight into development in the Inland Empire, discussion of new business inventive programs such as a sales tax rebate, development impact fee financing and industrial development bond financing. He expressed his gratitude towards the Building Industry Association and working with developers and builders. He concluded by extending an open arm welcoming all who are interested in meeting with him from the industry in hopes to create a development friendly environment in Riverside County.
