Update from the SBCDP Executive Committee

Greetings to All Members of the San Bernardino County Democratic Central Committee;

As noticed by our Chair Chris Robles: “The California State Public Health Officer and Director of the California Department of Public Health is ordering all individuals living in the State of California to stay at home or at their place of residence except as needed to follow the federal critical infrastructure sectors.”

This is a courtesy notice on behalf of the Chair, and the SBCDCC Executive leadership to formally inform you that Governor Newsom has canceled all meetings in the state due to the Corona Virus Pandemic. Of course this includes the San Bernardino County Democratic Central Committee meeting this coming Thursday evening. Everyone’s safety is, and should be our number one priority at this moment.

Due to the rapid movement of the COVID-19 strain, and until further notice, The “Safer at Home” guidelines, ordering individuals to remain in their residence, and limit all nonessential movement, apply to everyone in the state of California, including the SBCDCC, and will be in place until further notice.

We will notify everyone as soon as possible when further developments take place, and we are given an all clear to meet again. Please take care of yourselves, and your loved ones first.

Take Care and Best to All,

Chris Robles, Chair
Mark Westwood, 1st Vice Chair
Jim Gallagher, 3rd Vice Chair
SBCDCC Executive Committee Officers and Leadership

Republican Jesse Armendarez is Reported Violating Campaign Finance Laws

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 7, 2020

Republican Jesse Armendarez is Reported for
Violating California Campaign Finance Laws

Armendarez is caught hiding true source of contributions to
his campaign for San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors

On Tuesday, February 4, 2020, the San Bernardino County Democratic Party filed complaints with the California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC), the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Public Integrity Unit, and each of the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors asking for a full investigation of Jesse Armendarez and Armendarez for Supervisor 2020 (ID# 1419589) for violating campaign finance laws.

“Republican Jesse Armendarez has been caught hiding the source of his contributions in direct violation of California’s campaign finance laws,” said Chris Robles, Chairman of the San Bernardino County Democratic Party, “we’ve caught him lying to voters about being a Democrat and now he’s intentionally hiding from voters who’s paying for his campaign.  Armendarez is another cynical, lying, corrupt politician backed by secret special interests hiding in the shadows.”

Armendarez filed a campaign disclosure report showing a $31,000 transfer of funds from his Fontana City Council committee to his Supervisorial Committee without indicating the individual contributors of those funds purposely avoiding campaign contribution limits.

Not counting Armendarez’s personal loan, this $31,000 transfer represents a significant portion—almost 20 percent—of the funds raised by his Supervisorial Committee to date.
