Ron Cohen delivers over 5,000 signatures to Town Hall

Yucca Valley, Ca.- Ron Cohen formally announced his candidacy for Yucca Valley Town Council  at the full house and packed meeting of the Morongo Basin Democratic Club.

Cohen is a familiar face in Yucca Valley as the spokesperson for the Yucca Valley Recall of Councilmen George Huntington and Robert Lombardo.  Personally walking and speaking with several hundred residents in their homes during the Recall effort, Cohen has tapped into the heart and soul of the community.

Over one year ago, Cohen lead a group of Concerned Citizens regarding the Yucca Valley budget holding meetings at his residence to analyze each budget item line by line.  At one meeting in his living room, Town Staff was present along with two councilmen to discuss the budget spreadsheet and each category of expenses.  Cohen has continued to state there is too much fat in the budget and suggested easy ways to reduce expenditures which always fell on deaf ears.  Appointed Mayor Abel scoffed at Cohen’s suggestion of any committee meetings with staff/council and citizens to go over the budget.

Here is a copy of his recent flyer:  Taking Back Yucca Valley

  • Develop community focused town not based on one particular group
  • Hold periodic town hall meetings to listen to the people
  • Establish new programs that invite youth involvement (e.g. nature conservatories, expansion of pool hours, town affiliated youth activities …. work experience credits at high school)
  • Re-establish town infrastructure plan that is reasonable and equitable
  • Establish people friendly, business wise environment:
  • Provide streamlined and uncomplicated methods for new businesses
  • Encourage local business involvement BEFORE making changes
  • Eliminate all denominational activity within town government
  • Vote for M. Ronald (Ron) Cohen for Town Council in 2014
