Patricia has a heart for Riverside families and for doing the right thing. Most importantly she listens and is an advocate for justice. Patricia is the candidate that will be the inclusive mayor we need. She’s humble and hardworking. In simple terms, I’d rather have a do-er than a talker.

The Press Enterprise

Navigating the city out of its budgetary morass will take somebody with business moxie, extensive experience working with state and local entities and persuasive abilities to bring along a sometimes lackadaisical council. For Riverside, Patricia Lock Dawson is the best suited to do that.

Riverside, and our larger society, are in a time of great challenge and change. We need a mayor that will be a reliable voice to cut through the challenges, find common ground, and bring about meaningful change. I have known Patricia for over a decade and am confident in her abilities to be the inclusive leader that will bring the right people to the table to uplift our community and get the job done for Riverside.
