Supervisor Paul Biane released a statement today in regards to his loss to Fontana Councilwoman Janice Rutherford. He said the “politically-motivated accusations” made by the district attorney cost him his Second District seat. His statement follows:

“First and foremost, I want to thank my staff members for giving me the support and tools I needed to accomplish a lot of great things for the residents of San Bernardino County’s Second District over the past eight years.

I am also grateful to the elected leaders of the City of Rancho Cucamonga who stood by me during my tenure as supervisor and during this election.

I attribute my narrow loss to the false and politically motivated accusations leveled against me by the District Attorney. In addition, the anti-incumbent rhetoric that was enflamed by the disgusting abuses of public trust in the City of Bell undoubtedly had an impact on the election.

I want to thank all of the Second District voters who recognized my accomplishments and the improvements I brought to their communities.
