Western Municipal Water District Director, small business owner, nonprofit leader, and longtime community leader Fauzia Rizvi announces run for newly drawn Assembly District

Director Rizvi has received an outpouring of support with over fifty key endorsements from notable federal, state, and local elected officials throughout California 

CORONA, CA – Western Municipal Water District, Division 5, representative, small business owner, nonprofit leader, and longtime community leader, Fauzia Rizvi, has announced her campaign to run for the newly drawn Assembly District 63. This district includes the communities of Lake Elsinore, Menifee, Norco, Canyon Lake, and parts of Eastvale, Riverside, Perris, and Corona.

“At the beginning of the pandemic, I was inspired to step up to coordinate and lead over 100 food drives as well as mask distributions to senior, veterans, and families-in-need throughout the Inland Empire,” stated Rizvi. “This inspired me to run for my local water board to serve families like mine, which I have successfully done since the community elected me. I look forward to bringing more resources to our region such as investing in our local infrastructure, rebuilding our local economy through workforce development, enhancing veterans services, and addressing the housing crisis.”

Rizvi currently serves as President of For the People Taskforce, working to address food insecurity and utility debt for Inland Empire families in collaboration with over 35 churches, veterans organizations, and local nonprofits. In addition, she is currently serving as a member of the Riverside Community College District’s Citizens Bond Oversight Committee and served as a Board Treasurer and the Interfaith Chair for the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California.

Her involvement in the community includes many years serving as a parent-teacher association member, working for the Interfaith Coalition, and volunteering for organizations such as the Corona Norco Interfaith Association, Beloved Corona, and Cops & Clergy. In addition, she was the first woman elected to be on the executive board for the Islamic Society of Corona Norco.
