LUCERNE VALLEY • After one of the many critical things Neil Derry said about his opponent last week, he paused and added, “In case you haven’t figured it out, the gloves are off.”
Derry made that abundantly clear during his visit to the Lucerne Valley Economic Development Association meeting at the Senior Center on Oct. 2.
James Ramos, who’s challenging Derry for the San Bernardino County Third District Supervisor seat in November, was absent from the meeting. According to Derry, this isn’t the first time Ramos has avoided him.
