The campaign to re-elect Mike Ramos for San Bernardino County District Attorney announced today the endorsement of CAL FIRE Local 2881.

“Our active and retired members appreciate your strong belief in prosecuting matters regarding arsonists and drone use when it impedes firefighter operations and endangers our firefighters while they are protecting the communities,” said CAL FIRE Local 2881 President Mike Lopez.

CAL FIRE Local 2881 represents more than 6,500 men and women within CAL FIRE. They are the largest fire department in California and the third largest in the United States.

VICTORVILLE — A packed program featuring a host of San Bernardino County dignitaries brought High Desert businesses and organizations together for the State of the County address Wednesday morning.

Hosted at the Hilton Garden Inn, the Board of Supervisors — led by Chairman Robert Lovingood and with the exception of 3rd District Supervisor James Ramos, who was absent — kicked off the address with noteworthy updates from their respective districts.

This year, the county will see close to $100 million in restitution from welfare fraud busts, according to District Attorney Michael Ramos.

We have a lot of people in our county on welfare, and a ton of them are cheating. And I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of it ... We said enough already.
— District Attorney Michael Ramos

 

More than 100 have been arrested through welfare fraud sweeps, Ramos said, but even an greater effort has gone toward gang sweeps in the county. Since 2005, when the county’s gang unit was increased to fight back against transitory gang activity in the region, more than 11,000 cases have been filed with the District Attorney, Ramos said.

Wednesday’s event was the fifth annual State of the County, Lovingood said in his send-off, asking local leaders to return next year.

“The best opportunities are in front of us,” Lovingood said. “We have the challenges, but we continue together.”
