Not exclusive to Riverside CountyReply: BillB
Nathan, Riverside County is not the only county hostile to Small Businesses and former Assemblyman Jeffries knows that fact. California is probably the most business hostile state in the nation. The liberals, environmentalists and regulators in this state have driven out the most productive and best-paying businesses and continually work to kill both large and small business with absurd regulations, wage requirements and zoning. If you ask millinials (gen-Y) where movies are made, they are likely to name any place but Hollywood. The electronics industry that made Silicon Valley is now mostly an offshore enterprise, and heavy industry (steel making and plastics, etc.) no longer exist in California.

I agree and support the idea that Riverside County needs to stop being a bedroom community for Orange and Los Angeles Counties. It can't happen with only changes in Riverside County. It will take a statewide effort. What did Mr. Jeffries do to help when he was part of the Sacramento Mafia?

Jeffries Standing for Small Business'Post: Nathan
This is a good article. I do not care which side of the isle you are on, I think we can all agree that small business is the backbone of our economy and right now Riverside County is not the best place to start a business. I have friends that travel to Sacramento and apparently Riverside County is kind of a laughing joke up there. Though I know that is not saying much coming from Sacramento but it is kind of true from what I hear. I also have friends who have decided to start their business on the border of our County (next one over) due to all of the bureaucracy here. We the people should have a streamlined path to prosperity and we should not have to spend most of our start up capital before we even get started. Refreshing to see an elected official not acting like a politician. I always thought this county could thrive with it's natural beauty and all of the resources and hard working people available. I say take business from LA county and lower taxes for the film industry here. They are moving out of state due to our insane taxes, why not create instant jobs here and bring money to our County, we definitely need it. Anyway, just thought I would share the good things in our area too, and not just the bad stuff all the time.
