ORIGINALLY POSTED IN THE VCSTAR
I was very disappointed to read that voters may be confused by the huge amounts of money pouring into the Ventura County Board of Supervisors races. California Resources Corp. (formerly known as Occidental Petroleum) is spending money on hit pieces, misleading commercials and push polls. Don’t reward this mean-spirited attempt to buy your election. Vote for Carmen Ramirez for supervisor.
Oxnard’s mayor pro tem, Ramirez is an honest, hardworking, ethical and smart local resident who deserves to be elected to the board. I know that she has spent years protecting the health and safety of local residents. You will want her highly respected, independent voice to continue to make a positive difference in improving the quality of life for thousands of people who live, work and enjoy visiting Ventura County. Our family owns a home in Oxnard and is well-aware of what is at stake.
Send a strong message that this type of politics is not OK. Don’t let powerful special interests know they can win by spending nearly $1 million interfering in your election and misleading voters. Tell them your vote cannot be bought. Oil money cannot buy this election.
As a legislator and teacher who had the honor to represent and work in Ventura County for many years, the results of this election will be felt for decades. We will all benefit from Ramirez’s wisdom and integrity as a member of the Ventura County Board of Supervisors.
