My name is Lloyd White. I am an elected member of the Beaumont City Council. I was elected in November 2014 and my term runs through the end of 2018.
When my daughter began attending the Beaumont Unified School district in Kindergarten, I decided to start a website to provide a resource for parents but more importantly to provide a platform to get more parents involved.
After my unsuccessful run for school board in 2012, I was approached by a group of concerned citizens who asked me if I was aware of the financial problems facing the City of Beaumont. I began to look at the city's audits and attending council meetings. This blog has evolved to include Beaumont city government and city politics.
In 2014, I was elected to the Beaumont City Council. After my election, I stopped blogging. I felt it was important to take some time to investigate what was really happening in the city.. I decided it would be better to make myself available to meet with citizens face-to-face rather than having conversations via social media and blogging with individuals who may or may not even be who they claim to be or represent.
I feel now there is a good reason to once begin using this platform to reach as many Beaumont citizens as I can. I will be more active on this blog but I will continue to only carry on conversations in person. I have always made myself available to anyone who wants to speak to me directly and have a productive discussion about issues facing the City of Beaumont. I will continue to do so. If you want to meet, send me an email and I will get back to you. Send your email to: OurFocusOurKids@gmail.com
