    Oxnard District 2 Council Seat – Ricardo Torres – Candidate Profile

    My name is Ricardo Torres, a father of two and a product of Oxnard. I have been a public servant in the affordable housing sector for about ten years. I attended all local grade schools in Oxnard and graduated from Hueneme High School in 2009. I received my Bachelors in Criminal Justice and Spanish from California Lutheran University and am currently attending graduate school in the Master’s Program in Public Administration at CSU San Bernardino.

    Growing up in Oxnard, my family lived in public housing. My siblings and I were the youth some identified as at-risk, and my family was one of the “less fortunate” families. I say this only to elaborate on the success of my professional experience serving our communities; this community raised me. My personal experience of overcoming adversity and life challenges has given me the knowledge and tools to advocate for what is right, fair, ethical, and in the best interest of the community. At the same time, my professional experience has taught me to understand the bureaucracy in government. This makes me a great asset to the Council and a great advocate for my constituents.

    My life experiences and family struggles have shaped me. I have continued to get up, again and again, and feel that this is what sets me apart from any other candidate for District 2—Grit- Determination- Passion.

    My interest in serving my community stems from my youth. While in high school, I was involved in student government and have continued to stay abreast of local, state, and national policies that affect my community. I feel my knowledge, experience within my community and leadership skills afford me the opportunity to be the right candidate for this position. I am a natural problem solver and I am more invested in finding solutions than pointing fingers.

    I will take the path of fiscal responsibility and accountability with measure E and the new cannabis tax. I will promote economic development for all small businesses and in all areas of the city. My expertise in affordable housing will be an asset to the council as we continue exploring solutions for affordability and our homeless populations.

    I will stand for honesty, transparency, and trust. I understand the pride of our District 2 communities, and also understand the next generation of Oxnardians that (will) call Wagon Wheel and Riverpark home. We are facing growth within our District and a lot of work needs to be done to understand and address the unique needs we face and will be facing in the near future.

    I believe in:

    –           public safety

    –           protecting our aging population

    –           upgrading our infrastructure (housing, streets, economic development, and education)

    –           quality of life

    We know Oxnard is in a critical fiscal stage; moving forward, every decision that is made will bring consequences to the next generation, including my daughter and son, your children, and your children’s-children. I publicly commit to making conscious decisions and vote in the best interest of our community today, and tomorrow.

    Does he still wallow in victimhood or does he know the correct path to social and economic freedom? That is the question.

    I guess you prefer a party that is tearing itself apart after being hijacked by a narcissist.

    If you are referring to DJT as ‘the narcissist” He earned the support of the Party and the voters. While he might not be a ‘Beau Ideal” ( and name a politician/candidate who is??? ) he recvd the support the votes, he earned them he won them, no hijacking going on. Compare to how the Dems rigged their game so Bernie could not win the nomination, ‘Super delegates”… The Dem Party are the ones who stole the nomination or rigged it for ‘Her” and then ” Old Joe”. DWI.

    It wont be difficult to never again vote for a Democrat as there no longer are any ‘Democrats” they are pretty much all Communists or Fascists of varying stripes and patterns.
