Moving Oxnard Forward
On November 8, Oxnard voters will have the opportunity to vote Yes on Oxnard Measure C (“the Oxnard Term Limits Act”).
Why adopt term limits?
Because elected officials often become drunk with power and feel entitled. They act to serve themselves, not represent you – writing laws restricting YOU, while they violate those laws.
Case in point, in 2020 Oxnard voters adopted Measure B, which includes a ban on city council members receiving gifts from those who contract with the City.
Since then, a majority of those serving on the Oxnard City Council have accepted one or more gifts in defiance of Measure B.
This is why we say, “Politicians are like diapers: they should be changed often! And for the same reason!”
And why Oxnard voters should vote Yes on Measure C to implement real term limits … without loopholes.
Some of our volunteers put together two short videos providing evidence of council members accepting gifts …
… and proving that council members KNEW about the law before violating it.
We have two versions: the first is a three-minute version with more details … the second is a one-minute summary.
Please let us know which version you prefer … and share this information with your friends and neighbors.
