The voters of Cathedral City have a chance this year to reshape their city council. For the first time, councilmembers will be elected by district, with three seats up for election in 2018 and the other two in 2020.
District 5 is comprised of the Panorama and La Pasada neighborhoods, as well as the southern and western portions of Rio Vista and the Park David Senior Housing complex, and is one of the districts open in the November 2018 election. Together, these neighborhoods make up approximately 20 percent of the city’s population.
After serving more than 27 years in the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, Raymond Gregory retired in 2017 and is seeking to continue to serve his community in a way that is more local. With his experience in public safety and government, as well as his business education, and considering that he has lived in the Panorama-area of Cathedral City for over 20 years; serving on the city council representing our neighborhoods seems to be the perfect way to give back.
