Thank you for visiting the webpage for The Office of Mayor Rusty Bailey. As Mayor, I am committed to making Riverside a safer, healthier, and more prosperous place to live, work, go to school, and raise a family. I believe it is our responsibility to invest everything we can to make our city the most innovative, vibrant, dynamic, safe, and healthy city for our children and future generations of Riversiders.
My main goals as Mayor:
Riverside is headed into its next generation of greatness. With participation and collaboration between the city, its residents, and the partners we have in the education, faith-based, non-profit, and business community, Riverside is well positioned to Seize Our Destiny.
I welcome your comments and feedback. I value the opportunity to meet with residents and businesses. Please schedule an appointment by calling my office at (951) 826-5551 or you can email me at email@example.com.

If you would like to review the City Manager’s report or read the official Measure A ballot question, please click on http://riversideca.gov/measure-a/then go to the bottom of the page and to the box called Measure A Documents and click on Proposed Programs Cuts if Measure A Fails.

Please remember to return your ballot by June 4th.
