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.
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.
On election night, Ashley will host a gathering at Menifee Lakes Country Club, 29875 Menifee Lakes Drive, from 7-10:30 p.m.
Ashley is a native of Riverside County and has a deep commitment to the people of this area. Supported by his family -- including Mary, his wife of 57 years; his six children, 19 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren -- Ashley has worked for decades to improve the lives of his fellow citizens.
Ashley's commitment to the health and safety of the people of Riverside County is unmatched. He has provided funding for more jail beds, new Sheriff's deputies, firefighters, deputy district attorneys and probation officers during his years as County Supervisor.
"Mary and I want our children and our grandchildren to have the same wonderful quality of life we knew growing up here in Riverside County," Ashley said. "We can do no less."
