Riverside – At the Riverside County Board of Supervisors meeting last Tuesday, members voted to name a part of Riverside’s downtown headquarters—the County Administrative Center Annex—in honor of retiring Supervisor John Tavaglione.
Tavaglione, whose term will expire at the end of 2018, previously announced he will not seek re-election. Tavaglione has served as the county’s Second District Supervisor, which includes the cities of Corona, Norco, Jurupa Valley, Eastvale, and about a third of the City of Riverside, for more than twenty years. First elected in 1994, Tavaglione was sworn into office for the first time on January 3, 1995.
After the Board’s decision on Tuesday, Tavaglione acknowledged how honored he felt to be recognized by his peers. He said, “The proposal alone is the honor of my career because the annex is home to the board and to our meeting chambers, where important decisions are made every week.”
