Mayor Pro-Tem, Randon Lane, made it official today: He’s running to be- come the Third District Supervisor and has already gathered a wide array of endorsements from elected officials and community leaders. “Over the last four years Supervisor Washington has been absent from the district. During difficult times we need leaders who can make difficult decisions and we have not seen that from the Third District,” said Lane. “Unfortunately, Supervisor Washington has closed the door on Riverside County’s working families, and it is now time for new leadership that will show up and be a voice for everyone.”
Mayor Pro Tem, Randon Lane has been active in city and county issues for many years. He was first elected to the Murrieta City Council in 2008, serving as Mayor in 2011 and 2016. In 2016, Lane was re-elected to one of two open positions with the most votes in a six-person field. Previous to the City Council, he served as a Commissioner on the Murrieta Planning Commission from 2003-2008. His tenure in these positions witnessed one of the greatest population explosions that have been realized in the country, an increase of almost 70%. While the economic downturn crippled other cities, the City of Murrieta continues to operate with strong budget reserves. It’s this type of fiscal responsibility and leadership that Lane feels he can bring to the Riverside County Board of Supervisors.
“I’m proud to have received such a tremendous amount of early support and endorsements from our community,’ Lane announced. “The Third District needs strong leader- ship that supports limited government and accountability, fiscal responsibility that is fair to our working families and a bold course of action that will bring new life to the Third District and Riverside County. I believe my vision for the future of Riverside County and my track record in Murrieta demonstrates I am the best candidate for this position.”
Randon and his wife, Bridget, are proud parents of three kids. They first moved to Murrieta in hopes of finding the perfect place to raise their children. They found a tight-knit community that shared their values of family, education and faith. In addition to various non-profit board memberships, Lane serves as the 1st Vice President of the League of California Cities, LOCC, 2nd Vice President of the Southern California Association of Governments, SCAG and the Chairman of the Board for the Riverside Transit Agency, RTA.
