In a series of ongoing meetings with constituents, Riverside County Fourth District Supervisor V. Manuel Perez continues his community outreach efforts with a meet-and-greet at the Indio Senior Center from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 19.
The senior center is located at 45-700 Aladdin St., Indio.
The supervisor has held similar sessions in Desert Hot Springs and Blythe.
The gathering is an opportunity for residents in the Indio area to share ideas and concerns, ask questions, and learn the latest about Riverside County. It is free and open to the public.
“I enjoy meeting community members and listening to their ideas and concerns. This feedback helps me advocate on behalf of the community, as we organize to pursue greater resources and funding for area improvements,” Perez said in a prepared statement. “If you live in the Indio area, please stop by. I look forward to meeting you and working closely with you.”
Gov. Jerry Brown appointed Perez to the District 4 seat, which covers the Coachella Valley, until the November 2018 election. He was appointed to fill the seat left vacant in the wake of Supervisor John Benoit’s death in December 2016.
Perez is being challenged by Jan Harnik, a Republican and a member of the Palm Desert City Council.
Perez represents the eastern two-thirds of Riverside County on the Riverside County Board of Supervisors. Stretching from Palm Springs and Desert Hot Springs, south to the Salton Sea and east to Blythe and the Colorado River, the 4th District is the largest geographical district in the county.
