Marion Ashley is the Chairman of the Riverside County Board of Supervisors. He’s currently in his 3rd or 4th term, and has clearly gained the public trust. Ashley and fellow supervisor Jeff Stone continue to try to convince Governor Jerry Brown to give them more money for their roads, infrastructure, and public safety. Marion also wants to save the Salton Sea from drying up, and has established desert preserves in the county. He is your classic “Republican Environmentalist,” of the Southwest, gaining votes from both sides of the aisle.
It is an honor and my pleasure to serve as your elected representative on the Riverside County Board of Supervisors. This website has been designed to provide you with the latest information on services, events and projects in the 5th district. Through our website, we hope to provide you with the highest level of access to government services.
The 5th District is truly unique in that we represent a very diverse area that stretches from Desert Hot Springs in the north east to Menifee in the south. The cities within district 5 are Banning, Beaumont, Calimesa, Menifee, Moreno Valley and Perris. Unincorporated areas include Banning Bench, Cabazon, Cherry Valley, Desert Hills, Desert Hot Springs, El Nido area, Juniper Flats, Lake Perris, Lakeview, Lakeview Mountains, Mission Lakes, Mission Springs, Morongo Bandlands, Nuevo, North Palm Springs, Painted Hills, Quail Lake, Reche Canyon, San Jacinto Wildlife Reserve, San Timoteo Canyon, Snow Creek, The Sovereign Nation of the Morongo Band of Mission Indians, Twin Pines, West Garnet, Whitewater and Windy Point.
The 5th District is also distinctive in that it includes the sovereign Indian Nations of the Morongo Band of Mission Indians, and portions of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians and Soboba Indian tribal lands as well as March Air Reserve Base. Providing quality County services to such a diverse area of competing needs and constituents is a challenge but one we continually strive to meet.
