Carla Thornton for Moreno Valley City Council District 2
As someone who had the pleasure of growing up in Moreno Valley, I know firsthand that our city is the perfect place to raise a family and build a successful life.
Moreno Valley is full of good, hard-working people, who want to continuously invest in and improve this city for themselves and their neighbors. Moreno Valley, simply put, is home.
From an early age, I started my journey in community service. This experience created in me a strong work ethic and instilled in me a core value to serve my community. Like you, I am a committed resident and have had the pleasure of actively serving our city, and our country. I spent 20 years in the United States Air Force and served on our cities Environmental and Historical Preservation Board for over 5 years. I am the Chairperson of our cities Traffic Commission and serve our states veterans population as a Governor Appointee on the California Department of Veteran Affairs board. In these roles, I have supported initiatives that improved the quality of life for families, prioritized our residents needs and ensured that your voices have been heard.
I understand how important it is to continue to fight for the needs of our city, and if elected, I will use the experience I gained in the military, as a Commissioner and as public servant to continue that fight. I am committed to representing Moreno Valley families and making sure that our city is known around the county, state and nation as a safe, friendly, and affordable place to live and work.
