Mayor Gutierrez' Weekly Message

Mayor's Minute

Mayor’s Weekly Message – October 16

Dear Moreno Valley Residents:

It is truly an exciting time to live in Moreno Valley! Home values are on the rise, and we have created more than 14,000 new jobs in the past four years. World-renowned businesses are flocking to Moreno Valley, and we are ranked as the third most fiscally stable city in the nation.

Highland Fairview has announced plans to bring a second Skechers facility to Moreno Valley. This proposed expansion will create many new jobs, and produce significant economic growth for the City of Moreno Valley. This development will be located in the World Logistics Center area of town and will complement the Skechers North American Distribution Headquarters. 

Skechers North American Distribution Headquarters is a 1.8 million square feet state-of-the-art logistics facility. Skechers is the largest LEED Gold certified building of its type in the United States. It is also an excellent example of how green development can be seamlessly integrated with large-scale commercial projects.

I believe that Council’s bold actions alongside our City staff’s unrelenting efforts combined with the major success of Skechers North American Distribution Headquarters are the catalyst for the recent influx of Global companies to Moreno Valley. 

I would also like to thank a Moreno Valley resident and Highland Fairview’s visionary leader Iddo Benzeevi for his continued investment in putting our City at the forefront of sustainable development in the California. 

Moreno Valley has established itself as a global hub for logistics and positioned itself as a leader at the forefront of tomorrow’s economy.

Meet Mayor Gutierrez

A resident of Moreno Valley for more than 20 years, Mayor Gutierrez serves as the City’s first directly elected mayor. He began service as a City Council member in 2013, was appointed Mayor Pro Tem and Mayor, and was elected mayor of Moreno Valley in 2016. Mayor Gutierrez is proud of the City’s success in bringing more than 9,000 new jobs to our community over the past three years. He has championed the award-winning Hire MoVal program – an initiative that promotes hiring local Moreno Valley residents while offering economic incentives to businesses through utility rate discounts and business license waivers.

He is an advocate for Moreno Valley’s Citywide Camera program and cutting edge community policing programs which allow the City to stretch resources while reducing crime and making neighborhoods safer.

Mayor Gutierrez also works diligently to improve community engagement to help ensure that City government effectively represents its residents and businesses. He created the Summer at City Hall program to give local high school students an inside view at how city government works and spearheaded the establishment of the Emerging Leaders Council, a panel of college students between the ages of 18 and 25 who advise Moreno Valley officials on youth issues.

Mayor Gutierrez has served on the boards of the March Joint Powers Authority (MJPA), the Western Riverside Council (WRCOG), the City’s Finance and Economic Development subcommittees, and as an alternate on the Riverside County Transportation Commission.

In addition to his role on the Moreno Valley City Council, Mayor Gutierrez has spent the last decade working with local youth as a special education teacher with the Moreno Valley Unified School District. He is also a reading instructor with Moreno Valley College.

The first member of his family to go to college, he earned an associate’s degree from Moreno Valley College, a bachelor’s degree from California Baptist University, a master’s degree in Education and a doctoral degree in Special Education from Northcentral University. Mayor Gutierrez is also an alumnus of USC’s Executive Education in Public Policy program and the USC Executive Education Marshall School of Business program in Strategic Analysis in Achieving Competitive Advantage.

He is a member of the United States Conference of Mayors Latino Alliance Committee along with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.

Mayor Gutierrez also serves as a local board member for the US Selective Service. Members are nominated by the governor and appointed by the director of the Selective Service System on behalf of the President of the United States. Mayor Gutierrez has been serving in that capacity since 2016.

“I am honored to have been chosen as the first directly-elected mayor of Moreno Valley, the city where I grew up and the city where I continue to live and work,” said Mayor Gutierrez. “I look forward to bringing more job opportunities and preserving an exceptional quality of life for our community. Together, we are putting Moreno Valley on the map and continuing to make it work for our residents.”
