Trevor Quirk District 1. Ventura County Supervisor is a write in. He has people holding signs outside Court House Downtown Ventura right now! He continues to help fire victims and is taking on the water issues in Ventura City!

Ralph Bogeberg

It would be helpful if there was information about each candidates position on the major issues.

Lynnette Mc Dermott

Is there a recommendation for SBDO Board of Supervisors, Distric t3? Both The Tea Party’s and Craig Huey’s opinions are very important to me. Thanks!


Who is recommended for VC Supervisor in District 1, part of western and Midtown Ventura?
