Mayor Pro Tem Crystal Ruiz


Ms. Ruiz's commitment to the citizens of the City and residents of Riverside County has been a passion of hers for many years.   She has been involved in the San Jacinto City Council in various capacities since December, 2012 campaigning and being re-elected on issues such as balancing the City budget, encouraging professional filming, concerts at the mansion, 4th of July parade and festival, increasing job opportunities and new home building.  Additionally, Ms. Ruiz was a candidate for the 23rd State Senate District in December, 2013.  

More recently, Ms. Ruiz became a Board Member of the Western Riverside County Regional Conservation Authority, an organization created to protect and preserve native plants, birds, and animals and their habitats.  She holds board positions with area organizations such as the Western Riverside Council of Governments and serves on committees such as Planning Commission Application Review/Appointment Recommendation, Public Safety and Cannabis Oversight Program Committee (CPOT).  Also, she is a member of the Southern California Association of Governments.

Most notably, in May, 2018, Ms. Ruiz went to Washington, DC to meet with the U.S. President representing the citizens of San Jacinto to discuss the heavily debated sanctuary State law.  Her devotion to her family and community is an inspiration to everyone.
