Marion Ashley (right) talks to volunteers during the Menifee Better Together event April 26.
Since his election to the Riverside County Board of Supervisors in 2002, Marion Ashley has become a respected leader on regional issues. He oversees a budget of $4.5 billion and sets public policy for more than 2.2 million people in what is one of the fastest growing areas in the nation.

One of those areas is Menifee, where Ashley's efforts to support the city with county funding and leadership are evident as he campaigns for re-election June 3.

Ashley's influence in the 5th District has been widespread. In this community, he has been a champion for measured and effective growth as well as recreational opportunities for youth and service to the community.

Two weeks ago, Ashley toured several sites in Menifee and greeted residents who volunteered their time in community service during the Menifee Better Together clean-up effort. His office also donated $5,000 to the effort.

In March, Ashley was on hand to see the opening of the half-mile stretch of Menifee Road previously known as the Missing Link. With county support, the opening of that roadway provided an important new north-south thoroughfare in Menifee. And on May 24, he will attend the grand opening of the Drop Zone Water Park -- a state-of-the-art aquatic park made possible in large part through his support.

As he moves into the last month before the June 3 election, Ashley will meet several times with the residents of Menifee. His schedule of local "meet and greets" includes:

Tuesday, May 6, 4-6 p.m.: Hosted by Patrick and Carol Wyatt, 29531 Winding Brook Drive, Menifee.

Wednesday, May 7, 7-8:30 p.m.: Hosted by Heritage Lakes at the clubhouse, 27600 Heritage Lake Drive, Menifee.

Thursday, May 8, 6-8 p.m.: Hosted by Bill and Julie Zimmerman, 28601 Tulita Lane, Menifee.

Monday, May 12, 4:30-7:30 p.m.: Hosted by Bill and Terry Currier, 28614 Coolwater Court, Menifee.

Friday, May 23, 6-8:30 p.m.: Hosted by The Club, 26768 Summer Sunshine Drive, Menifee.

Friday, May 29, 4-6 p.m.: Hosted by Ed and Quay Gervais, 29491 Winding Brook Drive, Menifee.
