MEET LLOYD WHITE

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 1981 he left school to work for his father and spent the next five years managing each of the family’s 3 restaurants in Oroville, Roseville and Auburn. After marrying his wife Marti in 1987, they moved back to Southern California. Lloyd worked as a manager for Transamerica Financial Services in Granada hills while Marti earned her accounting degree from California State Northridge and then he returned to UCLA completing his Economics degree in 1994.

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. Esri is the global market leader in GIS. In 2002, through Esri’s Fellowship Program, Lloyd was awarded a scholarship to the University of Redlands School of Business, earning an MBA in 2004. Lloyd has worked at Esri for 21 years, currently he works as a software developer on ESRI’s Business Intelligence team.

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. Lloyd immediately became active in Beaumont Unified School District politics, Cub Scouts and the Pass Area Swim Team. He served on the school site council and PTA Executive board as well as BUSD’s Budget Review and Technology Planning committees.

In 2014. Lloyd was elected to the Beaumont City Council and re-elected in 2018. He has represented the citizens of Beaumont on Riverside County Transportation Commissions (RCTC) board of commissioners, RCTC’s Executive Board and as a member of RCTC’s Budget and Implementation, Toll Policy and Coachella Valley San Gorgonio Pass Rail committees.

Achievements

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.

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.

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.

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.
