Hon. Jeff Stone
Senator, California 28th District
Senator Jeff Stone was elected to represent the 28th State Senate District in 2014. The 28th District stretches from Southwest Riverside County (Temecula, Murrieta and Lake Elsinore) all the way to the Arizona Border.
Senator Stone has lived in Southern California his entire life. He moved to Temecula because of the rural lifestyle and family values it represents. Jeff knew that Temecula was one of the best places to open a business and raise a family.
In 1983 he opened his first small business the “Temecula Pharmacy” and began building his strong ties and local involvement within the community. In 1992 Jeff began expanding his public service involvement when he ran and was elected to the Temecula City Council for three terms.
Stone served as Mayor until being elected to the Board of Supervisors. Jeff’s election to the Board of Supervisors in 2004 was an illustration of how effective his term on the City Council had been. Jeff successfully beat the incumbent and was reelected to the Board in 2008 and 2012. Prior to being elected and sworn into the State Senate, Jeff served as Chairman of the Board of Supervisors.
As a Senator, Jeff embraces the philosophy of a fiscally responsible and more efficient government that is less intrusive and more productive for its citizens. Public safety a top priority his, and he looks forward to continuing the work he did as a County Supervisor, where he created the county’s emergency reserve fund, streamlined the county’s property assessment system to help financially distressed families keep their homes, created the county’s internet juvenile sexual predator interdiction program, passed a county resolution making it easier for law abiding citizens to carry concealed firearms for personal protection, and cut transportation mitigation fees by half to promote economic growth.
One of Jeff’s proudest accomplishments came several years ago when he advocated creating a second tier for new hires and raising the employee portion of the pension contribution. Saving taxpayers millions while maintaining vital county services over the long term.
In addition to his work at the local government level Jeff continues to own and operate his local business, Innovative Compounding Pharmacy. Jeff is a graduate of USC, where he earned a Doctor of Pharmacy degree. He has taught graduate nursing students seeking their masters in nursing degrees at Cal State Dominguez Hills as an assistant professor of pharmacology and also served as an externship professor for the USC School of Pharmacy.
