Rialto Mayor Debora Robertson Endorses Dr. Kelly Erving for Rialto City Council
“I think Kelly Erving can add value to Rialto going forward, and this is why I’m supporting her for the Rialto City Council,” says Mayor Robertson.
RIALTO, CALIF. “As the mayor of our city, I welcome and support Dr. Kelly Erving for a seat on the Rialto Council. You may wonder why. First, Ms. Erving took the time to become familiar with local government and determined she wanted to be a part of continuing the progress and the direction she witnessed in Rialto, after choosing to make Rialto the place to become a homeowner. She chose Rialto, and proceeded to engage with various civic organizations, helping with serving the community by investing her time.”
Mayor Robertson praises Dr. Erving’s future orientation and supports her priorities. Dr. Erving says, “I want to create partnerships with businesses and organizations that result in affordable housing so that people who work in Rialto can afford to live in Rialto. The Renaissance Center has been an excellent addition to our community, and I am anxious to see more of this kind of economic development here. And I want to be sure that when our Council makes decisions, all the city’s stakeholders have had the chance to be heard and involved in the process.”
Mayor Robertson goes on to say, “When Kelly made the decision to run for a council seat, she took the time to introduce herself to me and share her reasons for running. I appreciate her respect for taking the time to seek my endorsement, rather than assume it was a foregone conclusion.
“We’re a diverse community and inclusion is very important to me. Additionally, I believe the citizens, in the end, will make the final decision on the representation they will support and continue to support. In the end, I believe character and respect for one another count.
“This election we have five candidates and only one incumbent. I think it’s important to balance between experience and individuals who will continue to want progress in Rialto and embrace technology and innovation.” Said Robertson.
“As mayor, my decisions will never be made on what my, or previous generations can do; my decisions are focused on embracing new technology, innovation and quality of life we all can enjoy.”
“I think Kelly Erving can add value to Rialto going forward, and this is why I’m supporting her for the Rialto City Council.”
