Signs Ask Residents to Contact Murrieta Mayor

Banners installed throughout Murrieta last week ask residents to contact Murrieta Mayor Randon Lane.

It is not campaign season but that is not stopping Murrieta Mayor Randon Lane from putting up signs around town.

Motorists may have noticed the banners, hung in various spots including on Murrieta Hot Springs Road and on Clinton Keith Road. "Murrieta Mayor Randon Lane wants your feedback," the signs say. Listed are his cell phone number and email address.

The mayor said since putting the signs out last week, he has already begun getting calls and emails.

"We've had some really positive feedback, and some concerns. What is really interesting about the average Murrieta citizen is that they have a lot of good things to say," Lane said.

The mayor said he has advocated for an approachable government since his campaign days.

"My No. 1 focus has been better communication. I challenge any elected official to it," Lane said.

"We get elected to serve the community, so why aren't we doing this--giving people the opportunity to have more direct contact with those they've elected to office."

Good Evening everyone. Thank you for taking the time to comment. Miss Rawlings, Miss Newman-Bearse, Miss Wrye, Sandie and Mr. Schutz thank you for the kind comments. Sue K, I try not to make promises because I am one of five and you need three votes to get anything done on our council. What I do promise is to work as hard as I can for the citizens of Murrieta and while we may not always agree I will always be consistent and fair in all that I do. Old Timer and Mary, I understand that I can not please everyone all of the time; however, if you disagree with the work that I am doing or the decisions I have made I would ask that you at least give me the opportunity to address your concerns. As my signs say, I want your feedback so please feel free to call me directly on my cell at 951-830-3485 or email me at rlane@murrieta.org and Mary, you are correct I should have done this a long time ago but frankly I just did not think about it till a few weeks ago. Thank you again for taking the time to respond.

You cannot be approved by everyone all the time. You cannot even be approved by your supporters all the time. All you can do is to do what you know to be the right thing to do. Listening to your constituents you will hear ideas and arguments on all sides of a question. Your decision has to be one that you feel is correct. Sensible people that don't get their way on an issue recognize this and will continue to support their candidate. Whether as an election ploy, or anything else, this action by the mayor is a good thing and should be applauded by all. It is difficult making decisions, making them in a vacuum is even harder. No, this person will not agree with you 100% of the time, but at least he is weighing your concerns in his decision making process.

Randon Lane is a Childhood friend of mine. He comes from a good Christian family that is based on love and trust. he's an honorable man with a heart for others. You guys are blessed to have someone like Randon on your side. I'm sorry for old timer who has something against self-promoting. At least Randon's good name preceeds him and follows him. So...what preceedes and follows you? Sorry for any typos... I'm tired and on my iphone :)

Don't have a problem with it. Anybody that does is either extremely jealous at his success or is crazy. Nice to have a strong conservative like Randon as mayor for Murrieta.

If your campaign paid for your banners, shouldn't it say that on the sign? And why would you not follow the rules of the city you supposedly help run ? Do the rules not apply to you Mr Lane?
