Yucca Valley, Ca.- James Ramos, candidate for 3rd District Supervisor and his campaign manager, Betsy Starbuck, met with me for a bi-partisan lunch at the Rib Co. restaurant to discuss bi-partisan issues of the Morongo Basin and the 3rd District.
It was a very lively and informative meeting as we discussed common goals and unemployment problems in the San Bernardino County. Ramos feels education is the key to prepare citizens with new job skills when the economy bounces back. Unemployment does not have a (D) or (R) next to the person seeking a job and both sides of the aisle need to work together.
James Ramos has received several bi-partisan endorsements to include Congressman Jerry Lewis in his bid for Supervisor of the 3rd District. He will be facing incumbent Neil Derry in the upcoming election if Assemblyman Paul Cook decides to run for Congress. It is still not known if Lewis will run again for office even though his lovely wife is encouraging him to consider retirement.
Some of the local issues we discussed included the mandated sewers for Yucca Valley, the abandoned Golf Course and the gaming casino proposed for Joshua Tree. I also informed Ramos of my concerns for the proposed animal shelter to be built jointly with SB County funds at a controversial site which will not be suitable in the long term.
Ramos would like to talk with our community at a “Meet & Greet” to hear from our local citizens about their concerns. Running on a Bi-Partisan endorsement platform, he feels this is the only way to find solutions to our “bi-partisan” problems.
