LUCERNE VALLEY • Two Congressional hopefuls are expected to show up and listen to local concerns at Tuesday’s meeting of the Lucerne Valley Economic Development Association.
Candidate Gregg Imus has told LVEDA organizers that he plans to attend the 5 p.m. meeting at the Lucerne Valley Senior Center. Imus’ opponent, Paul Cook, is also scheduled to attend.
Cook will run against Imus in November for the U.S. House of Representatives seat representing Lucerne Valley and the rest of the Victor Valley.
A representative from state assemblyman Tim Donnelly’s office also plans to attend, and County Supervisor Neil Derry will likely have a representative on hand as well.
LVEDA Chairman Chuck Bell said the group is planning a roundtable discussion of federal and state issues affecting Lucerne Valley and its economy.
“A lot of this is going to be about the (Marine) base; a lot of it is going to be about the fire tax,” Bell said. “It’s going to be anything the state or the feds are throwing at us. … We just want to let them know what’s happening so they’re aware of the issues affecting us.”
The public is invited to attend and participate. The Senior Center is located at 10431 Allen Way, behind the Janice Horst Lucerne Valley Branch Library.
