Rutherford deserves another term as San Bernardino County supervisor

Fontana Harold News | May 10, 2018

The statewide primary election will be held on Tuesday, June 5, and the Herald News is urging all voters to participate in our democracy and cast their ballots for the candidates of their choice.

 One of the key races in the election will be the 2nd District seat on the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors. Janice Rutherford, who has served as supervisor the past eight years, is being challenged by Marc Steinorth, who is a member of the California Assembly. The 2nd District includes the western part of Fontana as well as other municipalities.

Rutherford has been an effective supervisor during her two terms, after previously being a member of the Fontana City Council. With her help, the county has made many positive strides, including enacting jobs-friendly policies and enacting ethics reforms. She said her goals are to continue to improve county government and to “make sure that we deliver core government services the best that we possibly can,” and she deserves another four years to fulfill those goals.

Steinorth has served ably in the Assembly, but there is no reason why Rutherford should be replaced as supervisor. The Herald News endorses Rutherford and encourages voters in the 2nd District to vote for her on Election Day.
