The newest member of the Riverside County Board of Supervisors officially begins his first day at work today. Former state assemblyman V. Manuel Perez was appointed by Gov. Brown to fill the seat left vacant by the death of Supervisor John Benoit last December. More from KVCR's Ken Vincent.
V. Manuel Perez, the former Coachella Valley state Assemblyman whom Gov. Jerry Brown yesterday tapped to fill a vacancy on the Riverside County Board of Supervisors, won't be formally sworn in for another couple of weeks. And already, Perez has a potential challenger to his election campaign for the seat next year. KVCR's Ken Vincent has more.
