Mayor Lorimore Has a Proven Record of Reducing Crime in His City

Riverside County, California (April 8, 2022) – In response to the recent shooting in Sacramento and the rise in crime throughout California, Eastvale Mayor Clint Lorimore issued the following statement:

“Governor Newsom and the Democrats in Sacramento are failing to keep our communities safe. Instead of partnering with the public safety community to implement proven solutions to reduce crime, they are blindly following the liberal agenda of lawlessness and soft-on-crime policies. While Democrats push for defunding the police, I have led efforts to increase Eastvale’s law enforcement budget by 27%. We work closely with the Riverside County Sheriffs’ Department and, as a result, our violent crime rate is down 12% in the last year and Eastvale is ranked as one of the safest cities in Riverside County. We need more representatives in Sacramento who will partner with the experts – the public safety community – and hold criminals accountable to keep our neighborhoods safe.”

A small business owner, Clint Lorimore was elected to the Eastvale City Council in 2014 and currently serves as Mayor. At City Hall, Lorimore has worked diligently to improve public safety, reduce homelessness, attract high-paying jobs, and fight for local control. Lorimore has a proven record of delivering results for his city and in 2021, Eastvale was ranked as the second safest city in Riverside County.

Clint Lorimore was raised in Riverside County where he graduated from local public schools. Clint earned his bachelor’s degree from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona and went on to earn his master’s degree from Claremont Graduate University. Clint has been active in grassroots Republican organizations for over 20 years. He was elected to serve on the Riverside County Republican Party Central Committee in 2016 and he currently serves as Treasurer for the Riverside County Republican Party. Clint has been a proud homeowner in Riverside County since 2004.
