With nearly a year until California’s March 5, 2024 primary, the first candidate for a City Council seat has emerged. Warren Avery announced he is again running for the Ward 3 seat.
Avery first ran for the same seat in the 2020 election, which he lost to Ronaldo Fierro with 47% of the votes. Avery has served on the City’s Charter Review Committee and the RCCD Measure C Bond Oversight Committee.
“Being a responsive, accessible representative of the community will be one of my top priorities. Public safety, city services, and the impact of rising homelessness in Riverside will be my focus,” Avery says.
Richard Roth is terming out of his seat in the State’s 31st Senate seat and has declared in August 2022 his campaign for Riverside County’s Board of Supervisors District 1 seat. District 1 was redrawn in 2021 and now includes Riverside, Jurupa Valley, and Perris, as well as March Air Reserve Base, Highgrove, and Mead Valley. Former State Assemblymember Jose Medina and Western Municipal Water District board member Gracie Torres are also running to represent District 1.
Assemblymember Sabrina Cervantes and Riverside Unified School District board member Angelo Farooq are running for the 31st Senate District seat.
Riverside City Councilmembers Clarissa Cervantes of Ward 2 and Ronaldo Fierro of Ward 3 are both running for the State’s 58th Assembly District seat, which will be vacated by Clarissa’s sister Sabrina.
