Let's Meet The Team
Jeff Hewitt is, above all, a man of the good earth. Born in Redlands, California and raised in Yucaipa, CA, Hewitt is a lifelong California resident who was taught early on that to have a successful life, one needs to work hard, give people honest answers, and provide people a valuable service for their money. The result has been a 40-year run building the successful swimming pool construction business Champagne Pool & Electrical, which has dug thousands of holes in the ground for satisfied customers all over Southern California through innovative problem-solving and hard work.
After working to build relationships and bring that same innovative mindset to problem-solving on the small city of Calimesa CA’s Planning Commission and City Council for a total of 14 years combined (including three as Mayor), Mr. Hewitt currently serves as Riverside County’s 5th District Supervisor, making policy decisions that impact over 2.4 million Southern California residents every day. His goal is to make Riverside County government sustainable for future generations.
Hewitt has a Bachelor of Science in Biology, has been happily married to his wife, Wendy, for over 31 years and enjoys spending time off with his 6 children and 7 grandchildren.
