I’m running for State Senate to reform wasteful government at the state level and restore the promise of the California Dream.
As our Senator, I will fight to lower the costs of home building so that more Californians can afford to own their home. I’ll support tax cuts to help our small businesses and middle-class families make ends meet. I will work for common sense pension reforms to reduce the government debt that threatens so many of our local communities.
I offer a proven track record as a Citizen Tax Fighter who took on City Hall and won. I will bring this same dedication and focused leadership to the State Capitol as our next Senator.
The corruption exposed in the City of Beaumont resulted in multiple felony convictions and financial restitution for city taxpayers. Today, Beaumont is a thriving and financially well-managed community.
Born in Fort Ord California in 1961 Lloyd has always lived in California. Moved to Escondido in 1967 graduating from Orange Glen High School and enrolling at UCLA in 1979.
In 1994, Lloyd began work as a self-employed licensed securities broker and insurance agent in Escondido until he accepted a position at Esri in Redlands in 1997.
After the birth of their second child, Lloyd and Marti sold their home in Highland and moved into a much-needed larger home in Beaumont in 2006.
In 2014. Lloyd was elected to the Beaumont City Council and re-elected in 2018.
I have a unique and strong record of achievement which directly improved the lives of my constituents.
I'm not the wealthiest or most “connected” candidate. I’m a typical middle-class suburban family man — just like most of my constituents in Beaumont and State Senate District 23.
Through the actions of our council, we erased the imminent threat of bankruptcy for the city. Beaumont went from the edge of a financial abyss to an A+ rating from Standard and Poor’s. This rating has allowed the city to secure cost-effective funding for a state-mandated $100 million upgrade to a wastewater plant.
Over the years since I was first elected, Beaumont has gone from one of the most secretive local governments to one of the most transparent cities in California.
I believe my history of leading reform will be highly attractive to a broad range of voters in the region. The improvements I brought to Beaumont can be appreciated not only by Republicans, but also by Independents and Democrats.
Ran a highly effective campaign against entrenched corrupt interests
In 2014, I ran a reform campaign that knocked off three incumbents who had controlled the Beaumont City Council for a combined 40+ years.
Led an effort resulting in felony convictions and helped recover millions for the citizens of Beaumont
During my first month on the council, I worked with the FBI and local DA to expose a $40 million+ scandal that led to arrests and felony guilty pleas for the City Manager, Finance Director, City Attorney, and department heads of Planning, Economic Development, and Public Works. We have managed to secure $12 million in restitution so far.
Attracted more than 1,000 good-paying jobs to a small city, with more on the way
Working with my colleagues on the Council and our local developers we were able to raise $8 million in cash. The cash was needed to restart an essential $30 million construction of the Potrero - Highway 60 interchange. This project has been instrumental in attracting Amazon to construct a high-tech fulfillment center in Beaumont, bringing more than 800 new jobs.
I negotiated the settlement of a $63 million judgement which threatened to bankrupt the city
During that same first month, I brought the Western Riverside Council of Governments to the negotiating table, which eventually led to settlement of a $63 million judgement facing the city.
The settlement provided Beaumont with an added $900,000 in annual sales tax revenue.
$140 million in new local infrastructure
Beaumont went from the edge of a financial abyss to an A+ rating from Standard and Poor’s. This rating has allowed the city to secure cost-effective funding for a state-mandated $100 million upgrade to a wastewater plant.
Instituted Property Tax Reform
I worked to reform the city’s troubled Mello-Roos program, resulting in millions in savings for Beaumont home owners. We lowered property tax payments by over $4 million annually, affecting 88% of Mello-Roos tax payers. The current program will continue to monitor markets for future saving for the remaining homeowners.
