Would you like to see a new state law enacted? Have a gripe with an existing law?
Southwest Riverside County cities and unincorporated areas have new representation in the state legislature as a result of the Nov. 6 election, so that means new ears to bend!

Those elected officials include:
Melissa Melendez, 67th State Assembly District
(Represents Lake Elsinore, Wildomar, Lakeland Village, Canyon Lake, Menifee, Murrieta, French Valley, and Temescal Valley, among others – click on the attached map of the 67th District)
