Oxnard Mayor Flynn Slapped With Brown Act Violation Warning by VC DA Office

By George Miller

Ventura County Deputy District Attorney Thomas M. Frye issued  a written warning to Oxnard Mayor Tim Flynn on 7-25-8, citing that it was his conclusion that Flynn had violated the Brown Act, which regulates the content of public meetings. Specifically is says that Flynn conducted an extended, unauthorized discussion, which had not been authorized as required by law, on the purchase of new financial software.

A copy of the letter (links below) was sent to us by Oxnard resident and businessman Ed Castillo. He said that “there is more in the pipeline,” but would not elaborate.  Flynn had also lost a lawsuit, forcing him to change an inaccurate ballot statement made during the recent recall election and pay opponent Aaron Starr’s legal fees.

We exchanged phone messages with Flynn, who is on vacation and finally left a text asking for his comments on the warning, which we hadn’t received by Saturday night.
