Moreno Valley, CA (PRWEB) May 12, 2014
Mayor Tom Owings announced today that the Moreno Valley City Employees Association’s (MVCEA) Political Action Committee have endorsed the Mayor and are in opposition to the June 3rd Election effort to recall the Mayor.
The City Employees Voter Awareness Committee (CEVAC) voted unanimously to oppose the recall. In a letter to the Mayor, CEVAC consultant John Adams stated, “During your term in office we believe you have demonstrated outstanding leadership in directing the City's economic recovery and improving the quality of services provided to Moreno Valley citizens. Your knowledge of city government and results oriented approach are important factors that will continue to be needed to deal with the financial challenges facing the City in the future."
"We urge the voters in the 3rd Council District to reject the recall effort by voting NO, thereby keeping Mayor Owings in office. CEVAC and its members wish you all the best in your effort to oppose this recall bid and we look forward to working with you in the future.”
Prior to the official vote the CEVAC website gave a brief outline of their relationship with the Mayor. The outline stated that the MVCEA did not endorse Mayor Owings when he ran for office against an incumbent they had an existing relationship with. However, after the election they reached out to all members of the City Council and “we developed a good working relationship with Mayor Owings.”
The website message concluded that, “The bottom line for the MVCEA PAC is that Mayor Owings has been the most communicative elected official we have dealt with since 1991. During his term, things have turned around and started to improve for our members.”
Mayor Owings stated that he is very proud of his association with the MVCEA and credited the association for being a very hardworking and responsible group of people who has assisted in the City’s turn around.
