Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • I plan to address the lack of local jobs in Riverside County by attracting existing businesses to build campuses here and by addressing the excessive red tape that local businesses have to contend with to start their small business.
  • I plan to work with the neighboring counties to create a networked public transportation system to get people out of their single-driver cars and help decrease air pollution from motor vehicles.
  • I will address housing policies and make sure that all residents have the opportunity to have a home that they can afford because housing affordability is a huge issue in Riverside County.

Biografía

Courtney Sheehan was born in Minneapolis, MN. Her mother was a respected radio personality and journalist. Her father was a furniture salesman. She grew up in the ethnic melting pot of Northeast Minneapolis among working-class families, which formed a myriad of ethnic and racial diversity. This diversity has influenced her throughout her life and she takes pride in embodying the values of compassion, tolerance, and inclusivity in her work. Courtney graduated from Edison Senior High School in Northeast Minneapolis in 2003. From there, she built a successful career as a self-employed Corporate Marketing Consultant, focusing on new consumer product launch with a territory that spanned five states at the height of her career. She proudly worked in crafting innovative marketing campaigns for prominent household brand names. Feeling like she wanted to make more of a difference in her life and her community, Courtney enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 2010 and was trained as a Cybersecurity professional. She rose to the rank of Sergeant and rotated throughout three commands, her last assignment being Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton. While on active duty, she earned her Bachelors of Science in Political Science, the first in her family to obtain a college degree. She left the Marine Corps in 2019 with an honorable discharge. Currently, Courtney lives in Temecula, CA with her husband and daughter. She is enrolled in a post-graduate degree program in History and is campaigning for the Riverside County Board of Supervisors, Third District, which spans Temecula, Murrieta, Hemet/San Jacinto and unincorporated areas out to Anza & Idyllwild. Courtney is the only woman running for this elected office. She is also the Founder and President of Progressive Veterans of Riverside County, a non-profit organization advocating for the rights of local veterans in her community.

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

Courtney plans to bring innovation to the Supervisor position and intends to leverage the knowledge of professionals and technical experts with technology to solve the issues her county faces, while working across the aisle with other Supervisors and her neighboring counties. Her philosophy is, "public service over partisanship". Courtney isn't running this race for a paycheck or because she needs a job; Courtney believes in service over self and intends to fight corruption at the local level head on by leading from the front and leading by example.
