Ward 7 Update

Councilmember John Burnard



During this month of Thanksgiving, I have been reflecting on the things I am most grateful for. Primary among them is our wonderful community, neighbors, friends and family. Sandy and I look forward to our interactions throughout the community and are blessed when we can provide service.


I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving filled with abundance, Family and bright moments.


In your service John and Sandy!


We need your thoughts and help!

As we end this great year, we will be working on a video highlighting the many great attributes of life in Ward 7.

We need your ideas!  

What makes Ward 7 great in your opinion?

What locations can we show off?

I need a horse Ranch, who has one to show off?

What Ward 7 Clubs can we highlight?

Hole Mansion?

La Sierra University?

Riverwalk Park?

Those are just some primers to get you thinking. A community is enriched by its citizens, help us shine!!

Email your ideas to Sandy Garcia at sgarcia@riversideca.gov
