The Riverside Sheriffs’ Association (RSA) has endorsed former Assemblyman Russ Bogh for Riverside County Supervisor.

Bogh announced that after an intensive and rigorous process by the RSA, he was endorsed by their board.

“Russ has the record and vision to lead Riverside County,” said RSA President Bill Young.  “Law enforcement has a true advocate in Russ Bogh.”

Bogh served as Assemblyman representing the Inland Empire from 2001 to 2006. He has vowed to never sacrifice funding for Riverside County law enforcement. Russ knows the negative impact that poor public safety has on communities.  He is clearly the leading candidate for Supervisor among the law enforcement community.

The current Board of Supervisors and their staff have cut law enforcement funding to the bone. At the same time they have spent $40 million dollars to hire consultants to do the job that taxpayers elected them to do” said Bogh “Its time for a new set of priorities at the Board of Supervisors. The safety of Riverside County residents must always come first. “

As a result of his policy expertise in public safety issues Bogh was recognized as the Legislator of the Year by Crime Victims United, CA Fire Chiefs Association, and Cal Fire Firefighters.

Russ Bogh is running for the seat currently held by Supervisor Marion Ashley who will be retiring at the end of 2018. District 5 is located in the heart of Riverside County and includes the cities of Banning, Beaumont, Calimesa, Moreno Valley, Menifee and Perris.
