Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez Sworn Into Office

“I am honored to serve in the State Assembly and work to make a difference for Riverside County residents,” Melendez said Monday.

Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez, R-Lake Elsinore, today took the oath of office as the representative for the new 67th State Assembly District.

“I am honored to serve in the State Assembly and work to make a difference for Riverside County residents,” Melendez said in a released statement. “Californians have been under assault by Sacramento for far too long. I will work to restore fiscal responsibility and repeal overbearing mandates that hurt local job creation. As a Navy veteran and former mayor, I will use my experience to ensure that Sacramento pays attention to our district’s needs.

“I’m eager to develop and support initiatives that will encourage job creators to invest in California and put our residents back to work again,” she continued.  “We have one of the highest unemployment rates in the state and that is unacceptable to me.  I will work relentlessly to help the unemployed have a shot at finding a job and the dignity of earning a paycheck.”

Prior to her Nov. 6 election to the 67th State Assembly District, Melendez served a four-year term on the Lake Elsinore City Council. 

Melendez is stepping into the seat held by outgoing Assemblyman Kevin Jeffries, who is leaving his post as representative of the 66th State Assembly due to term limits.

the new 67th Assembly District now consists of the Riverside County cities of Lake Elsinore, Canyon Lake, Murrieta, Menifee, Wildomar and a portion of Hemet. It also includes the Riverside County unincorporated areas of Lake Mathews, Good Hope, Nuevo, and Winchester.

You're such a piece of garbage. I am so happy that your boy Paule lost and lost bigtime. I know it makes you mad and I take happiness in that. I just hope one day you'll use your real name so I can know who the real scum bag is.

How did Malindez do a bad job. I've seen few do more, ever. The pit that many others left before her, did the damage. We were lucky to have her as she brightened lives and lake elsinore. Good luck assemblyman Melendez.
