The following is a news release from the city of Murrieta: 

The City of Murrieta was given a “Turning Red Tape into Red Carpet” award for Business Retention and Expansion last week by the Inland Empire Economic Partnership (IEEP). Murrieta was also a runner-up in the Responding to Globalization category.


Recognized for their “comprehensive approach to economic development” and for “creating a prosperous Murrieta Valley Region,.” Murrieta, under the Economic Development Program, has established a “business concierge” program and a Priority Projects Program that help to fast-track permit processing.


“We want business in Murrieta,” said Murrieta Mayor Alan Long at the event. “Murrieta is a business-friendly city and we are working hard every day to encourage, attract and grow business.”


The city was also recognized by the IEEP for its efforts in responding to globalization by “promoting an internationally competitive city and region.” Murrieta has developed an Economic Development Program to create a global perspective and presence for Murrieta as a community that welcomes foreign direct investment and promotes international business growth to spur job growth locally.


“This is a global economy now and we need to recognize the opportunities outside of our borders,” said Bruce Coleman, Murrieta’s Economic Development Director. “Murrieta encourages international investments in our local companies as well as exporting. It’s a way we can help our businesses to grow.”


The Thursday evening IEEP event at the Redlands Country Club was presented by Chase and co-hosted by the Western Riverside Council of Governments (WRCOG), the Coachella Valley Association of Governments (CVAG) and San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG).


The IEEP is a private, non-profit regional economic development organization for the Inland Empire (which includes both Riverside and San Bernardino Counties). The mission of the IEEP is to help create the two-county region’s voice for business and quality of life.

Alek, take your issues and discuss them on FB. Better yet, go see a shrink.
Steve Newman February 25, 2014 at 11:45 AM
Kleiner- you keep harping on the "old" man stuff- aren't you only about 3 years younger than me? And what have I said that makes me a racist- I have never said- "non white women are uneducated"- that was you. And being Muslim is not a race.
Steve Newman February 25, 2014 at 11:57 AM
Alek- his posts are long because it is all cut and paste- not an original thought rolling around in the Toad head. He is a liberal shill.
SA February 25, 2014 at 12:29 PM
@Kleiner … seems to me that you are a moron (sorry just saying) …. (In my view) Democrats are not Americans as they take and give to every freeloader and ignore hard workers… If you believe any numbers that is being advertised then you must believe the Marlboro Man was sexy for smoking … Funny Affordable Health Care as proven to be not affordable … Why should anyone be ordered to buy something that controls their organs? …. You voted for a Nazi …
Jeff Kleiner February 25, 2014 at 01:31 PM
But it is the law SA, period!! Moron or not, I win. It seems that Conservatives want to control woman, abortion, birth control.....don't you see??? Lol
Jeff Kleiner February 25, 2014 at 01:33 PM
SA you say things with no proof......give me a fact checker who says you are right.?? You can't. Democrats help all Americans including YOU. Conservatives only help the rich, which you are not one of, so your the fool
Steve Newman February 25, 2014 at 02:36 PM
Alek- but you just responded- I will address you as I see fit- you don't have to respond, but you will- you are a lonely recluse who need the contact.
Steve Newman February 25, 2014 at 02:38 PM
Kleiner- yes the ACA is the law- but then why does the mighty pen holder keep changing it-way beyond his authority- time will tell. Karma is keeping count.
Steve Newman February 25, 2014 at 03:19 PM
Jeff- "Alek from what people are saying you are alone in everything you say and think" - that is rich coming from someone who is hated and despised by everybody with a functioning brain- except /belle of course- your little spark of hope- does Cindy know about the two of you?

As the land all around Pride Rock burned, the hyenas could still be heard fighting, oblivious to their future......
Steve Newman February 25, 2014 at 05:47 PM
Kleiener- that is more info than anybody needed- and a lie too. And you say conservatives lump all women into sex- then you talk about how many times you have sex. But that was by yourself-right? And men can have women as friends- what did you think I meant about Cindy knowing about Belle ? I know SS has been changed over the years- I never said it hasn't. Now you are making things up to argue about- compulsive behavior- talk to your shrink- the meds aren't working.
Mike February 25, 2014 at 07:02 PM
Jeff Kleiner, why are business permits down in the state of calif if business are growing?
Jeff Kleiner February 25, 2014 at 07:25 PM
wheres your proof mike???
Thresher 200 February 25, 2014 at 07:31 PM
Alek, you're still a racist.
Thresher 200 February 25, 2014 at 07:58 PM
Who lives closest to me? I need to take both of your heads and start banging them together. You both argue like a couple of old married couples. If I spun donuts in either of your front yards, you would each blame it on the opposing parties...democrats or republicans.
Thresher 200 February 25, 2014 at 09:18 PM
I'm glad somebody supports it. Most people feel that if they don't go on it, they'll be fined by the IRS. I never signed up and have no intentions of signing up. I'm happy with my present insurance, Tricare.
Steve Newman February 26, 2014 at 12:23 PM
Thresher- I live closer to you- but we know you won't be able to bang my head- don't we tough guy. Brave behind the keyboard- a coward in life. Most filipinas are 5' 4"- how so do you get on that harley- with a step ladder- and do you need a booster chair to ride. Jeff lives in Elsinore--he is more your type- short and wheel chair bound.
Thresher 200 February 26, 2014 at 12:49 PM
Steve - I don't need to behind any keyboard. If you want to man up, you give me the time and place for me to thump your sorry ass and I'll be there. Here's my email address, thresher146@gmail.com. Like I say, YOU give the time and place...if not, I will. Don't cower out on me either, punk.
Alek J Hidell February 26, 2014 at 01:34 PM
please give us heads up so we can watch this, o mighty gladiators! lol
Mike February 26, 2014 at 03:48 PM
Jeff, really? Your head that far in the ground or is that just a normal left wing post?
Steve Newman February 26, 2014 at 04:36 PM
Thresher200- a bit sensitive are we. We could go to spellys, they are use to gun fire there. Punk- how mature of you- and I said hiding behind the keyboard- you replied" I don't need to behind any keyboard." And I will make sure your favorite people are there. I have no desire to prove my superiority over you and I was not calling you out. Ride off cowboy, ride off.
Fortified- AKA Carlos Danger February 26, 2014 at 08:26 PM
Gunfire, threats.....and now.....silence........uh, oh....
Thresher 200 February 26, 2014 at 08:35 PM
Spellys sounds like fun. The bullet holes are all patched over but after a game of darts and some drinks, I'll dust off the old boxing gloves and give you my famous Threshing. Of coursr, you might win at darts, You'll go home threshed but richer. I could thresh you with my keyboard. In this case, my cell phone.
Steve Newman February 27, 2014 at 01:18 PM
Thresher 200- isn't Thresher a skate board? I googled it and it said it was a skate board. Interesting choice for a name if that is true. The bullet holes are gone, but that pesky blood stain remains. I like the emphasis on "old" boxing gloves-like you, I am on old vet too. Much too old to play younger man games of who can kick whose ass. The last fight I was in was in Vegas 4 years ago at Harrah's Carousel bar- won that one and retired.
Mike March 03, 2014 at 02:52 PM
Jeff Kleiner, Im sure you saw that Channell Corp is leaving Temecula and Calif because of oppressive business climate..
Mike March 03, 2014 at 02:56 PM
Caterpillar, Verizon, and others are already coming out with the costs they will incurr over this. But that isn't the REAL problem here. The real problem is what this is going to do to the already sucking outloud economy we have. I am talking about mass lay offs that makes what we have had already look like nothing. These companies will pay less people to work more hours because it will still be cheaper than paying the associated costs of Obamacare. The union people will be hit just as hard as the average working man too. That's gonna' suck for them, but I would call it poetic justice. The underground economy is also getting ready to explode. I mean explode. People that have farm labor and small business labor will save money by just paying cash and not dealing with the new taxes. Up until now they could come out by writing the labor off on their taxes, but now it would be stupid to do so. So, the way I see it is the liberals are working on accomplishing their tru motives here. Destroy the health system and move to single payer, destroy the economy and have the government owning all of business, and last but not least, destroy the drive that has made Americans the the best people on the planet by taking all control away and the ability to strive for more. After all, in a communist society one person cannot have more than another remember.
Steve Newman March 03, 2014 at 03:08 PM
Mike- I am pretty sure JK saw it- but since he is a liberal tax and spend entitlement freak he won't admit any problems with the dems in charge in California. He should move to New York City where the tax rate is the highest, since he has no problem paying taxes. One more calif company to Texas where their economy is so much better than Cali- and they support the 2d Amendment.
