A Political Figure
From those famous words spoken by John F. Kennedy in 1961, "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country." I hear way too often, "What can the City do for me?" It's time we start asking "What can I do for my City?"
I am Norm Kyriss running for Hemet City Council, District I. I have lived in Hemet for 39 years, graduated Hemet High in 1986, and have worked in real estate sales for 29 years. I am married to Victoria and together we have 3 children and 4 wonderful grandsons.
Prior to my real estate career, I worked as a typist, telemarketer, cashier, plumbing salesman, gas station manager, construction laborer, and auto parts sales/assemblyman. In my Real Estate Career I have served from sales to leadership positions, loss mitigation to problem-solving, leasing to management, accounting to contracts, loans to investing, short sales to bank-owned foreclosures, representing buyers and sellers.
I am currently serving as a Director for Southwest Riverside County Association of Realtors (SRCAR), SRCAR Legislative Chairman, SRCAR Governing Director, Grandfathers for Golf Director, Ramona Bowl Amphitheatre Director, Masonic Lodge member, BPOE Elks member, and Habitat for Humanity Volunteer. My past experiences include Hemet ROCS committee member, Hemet San Jacinto Association of Realtors PastPresident, California Association of Realtors Risk-Management Liaison and Federal Committee member, Spirit West Coast volunteer, Habitat for Humanity past Director and Family Selection Chairman.
This once small town of Hemet I grew up in has now reached out to me to provide strong direction and proven leadership. We must uphold the true commitment of Measure U supporting our Public Safety and local control. City leadership must aggressively attract jobs and economic development, promote a business-friendly safe environment, and stay tough on crime. We must take a hard look at unfunded liabilities, protect our Senior Communities and oppose the elimination of Prop 13, and continue to keep the pressure on Cal Trans mitigating the problems created with the median on Florida Avenue that cut right through the heart of Hemet.
We need to return civility, decorum, and a strong resolve to the Hemet City Council. I am asking for your support in bringing back "Hemet is Heaven" a former popular slogan that has long been forgotten.
