The VIC awards are given to those “Very Important Citizens” that demonstrate outstanding involvement in the political process for all who live in the City of Riverside. These are citizens that are willing to take on the political process for the betterment of us all and dedicated to making the City of Riverside a quality city for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

9. MARILYN WHITNEY and the Ag park families: Marilyn is retired and a new advocate for the AG Park Neighborhood. She has been instrumental in bringing the AG Park issue to City Council. Also, getting the media source KTLA involved and interested in the issues of AG Park. Marilyn is new to council meetings but ahs brought a lot to the table in a such a short amount of time. “Look Out for Marilyn!” The AG Park issue will not go away and be a definite contender with regards to how the City of Riverside has done business with developer buddies such as Chuck Cox. Currently, Marilyn has received a letter from Developer Chuck Cox’s lawyers to “Cease and Desist,” as to stop her first amendment right of free speech with reference to public comment at City Council. We believe this is back firing or blow backing on Mr. Cox. Someone has done someone wrong…

10. KEVIN DAWSON: Advocate for the Public and of Friends of Riverside Hills. Kevin has been a long time advocate for legal issues. Such as how we hire Out-Side-Legal-Council. I have personally known Kevin for 6 years and he has been working on it at least six years on longer.  Former City Attorney Greg Priamos would feverishly deflect and avoid the true contractual issues.  Bottom line there was never ever any contracts with big firms such as Best, Best & Krieger.  The issue finally came to City Council on December 17th, 2014.  An article on the subject which featured Kevin Dawson and Jason Hunter(Another Community Advocate). Congratulations Kevin for making a difference!

11. PHYLLIS PURCELL: Retired School Teacher and Advocate for the Homeless and Seniors. She has been a main stay at City Council Meetings almost every Tuesday talking on Senior and Homeless issues. In 2014, Mayor Bailey refused public comment to Phyllis Percelle and made her cry. This exercise by Mayor Bailey actions in what he may assumed was public disobedience, has been instrumental in changing the way public speakers are accepted at City Hall.

Joel

12. JOEL UDAYKE: Owner of The Flowerloft, He has supported many of the issues and he has been outspoken on the miss use of public funds and one of the most memorable moments of the year was when he brought in a orange jump suit and hand cuffs in a Victoria Secrets bag….. and used it as props for his public comments.  You had to have been there.
