Billboards are going up

10/17/2020

A number of voters have told me they are concerned about just leaving their completed ballot unattended in their mail box. That’s why many voters prefer to drop off their ballots either directly to the Post Office or drop it off at an official Riverside County Ballot Drop-Off Location. City Hall is an official Riverside County Ballot Drop-Off Location, making that an easy option to drop off your ballot during business hours in a safe and secure way.

To find a complete list of the Ballot Drop-Off Locations and their hours of operation, please click here.

 

California law also allows voters to have a family member or other trusted third party submit their ballot on their behalf.

 

Track Your Vote-By-Mail Ballot

Voters can track and receive notifications on the status of their vote-by-mail ballot by using the “Where’s My Ballot?” tool.  By signing up at WheresMyBallot.sos.ca.gov, voters can find out where their ballot is, and its status, every step of the way. 

When you sign up for “Where’s My Ballot?” you will receive automatic updates when the Riverside County Registrar of Voters office:

  • Mails your ballot,
  • Receives your ballot,
  • Counts your ballot, or
  • If there are any issues with your ballot.

 

Voters who sign up at WheresMyBallot.sos.ca.gov can choose to receive automatic updates by:

  • Email
  • Text Message
  • Voice Call

 

In Person Voting

If you prefer to vote in person, here are your options:

  • Vote at a Voter Assistance Center (find locations here) between Oct. 31st and Nov. 3rd
  • Vote at the Riverside County Registrar of Voters Office (2720 Gateway Drive, Riverside 92507) between Oct. 5th and Nov. 3rd. (For hours, please click here)
  • Vote at the Galleria at Tyler in Riverside, Westfield Palm Desert Shopping Mall in Palm Desert, or the Promenade in Temecula between Oct. 23rd and Oct. 25th, Friday through Sunday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Note: If you plan on voting in person, remember to bring your unused vote-by-mail ballot with you along with a black ballpoint pin.

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to meet with a group from CECO. They manage Congregate Living Health Facilities (CLHF). If you’re not familiar with these, they are a residential home with a capacity of no more than 6 (six) beds, which provides inpatient care, including the following basic services: medical supervision, 24-hour skilled nursing and supportive care, pharmacy, dietary, social recreational. The care is generally less intense than that provided in general acute care hospitals but more intense than that provided in skilled nursing facilities. Basically, they provide a homelike, rather than institutional, environment with around the clock one on one personal care, the Concierge service for nursing and support.

 

Congregate living health facilities provide one of the following

services:

CLHF - Services to persons who are mentally alert, physically

disabled, who may be ventilator dependent,

CLHF - Services for persons who have a diagnosis of a terminal

illness, a diagnosis of a life-threatening illness, or both.

CLHF - Services for persons who are catastrophically and severely

disabled.

 

Very few people are aware of these facilities and the personal services they provide. They provide the quality care, if not better, as Acute Care and Skilled Nursing facilities with often less costs. Typical savings are 1/3 the amount of the other services, yet most of these facilities have 0 (zero) patients, sitting vacant for months if not years.  Why are these facilities not more well-known and utilized? Several reasons can be accounted for, but mostly due to FAILED government legislation, all facilities are licensed by the state, yet they have not created a medical billing code. Without this code, facilities can not be recognized by Insurance Companies, therefore can not be paid for their services (once again at 1/3 the cost of other services). A pilot program, California  Senate Bill 1280, was passed to expand and open more facilities, but to date no Medicare billing code has been created for congregate care. Ask yourself, if you had a loved one in need of subacute level of care for short or long term needs, would you want them in an institutionalized setting or have one on one nurse to resident care in a home like setting? Therefore, my goal is to open up Congregate Living Health Facilities to everyone and establish a Medicare billing code for these facilities within my first 90 (ninety) days of office.

THE MEANING BEHIND THE 13 FOLDS OF THE UNITED STATES
 
This is what the 13 folds mean:
 
The first fold of our flag is a symbol of life.
 
The second fold signifies our belief in eternal life.
 
The third fold is made in honor and tribute of the veteran departing our ranks, and who gave a portion of his or her life for the defense of our country to attain peace.
 
The fourth fold exemplifies our weaker nature as citizens trusting in God; it is to Him we turn for His divine guidance.
 
The fifth fold is an acknowledgement to our country, for in the words of Stephen Decatur, “Our country, in dealign with other countries, may she always be right, but it is still our country, right or wrong.”
 
The sixth fold is for where our hearts lie. It is with our heart that we pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
 
The seventh fold is a tribute to our armed forces, for it is through the armed forces that we protect our country and our flag against all enemies.
 
The eighth fold is a tribute to the one who entered into the valley of the shadow of death, that we might see the light of day, and to honor our mother, for whom it flies on Mother’s Day.
 
The ninth fold is an honor to womanhood, for it has been through their faith, love, loyalty, and devotion that the character of men and women who have made this country great have been molded.
 
The 10th fold is a tribute to father, for he, too, has given his sons and daughters for the defense of our country since he or she was first-born.
 
The 11th fold, in the eyes of Hebrew citizens, represents the lower portion of the seal of King David and King Solomon and glorifies, in their eyes, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
 
The 12th fold, in the eyes of a Christian citizen, represents an emblem of eternity and glorifies, in their eyes, God the Father, the Son, and Holy Ghost.
 
The last fold, when the flag is completely folded, the stars are uppermost, reminding us of our national motto, “In God We Trust.”

Its official, we made the ballot for the November election – State Senate District 31. I want to personally thank everybody who wrote me in during the primaries. Here’s a Fun Fact: California State Senate has been controlled by the Democrats since 1970 – currently out of the 40 members, 11 are Republicans 29 are Democrats. California has had a Democratic Trifecta since 2011, meaning one party holds the governorship, a majority in the state senate, and a majority in the state house. It’s time to put and end to this Supermajority and bring the power back to the citizens. We need a balance in Sacramento, let’s bring common sense back to decision making. We can start by taking the District 31 seat. Signs have arrived if you would like one or know somebody that would, message me and we will drop one off.

Thanks for all the support –

Rod

Rod Taylor for State Senate.
