    The City claims Measure L could result in an 18 year old voted by you to be in charge of the city’s finances and they act to be concerned. 
    REALLY???
    Four years ago there were four professional candidates running for the position of City Treasurer. I was fortunate to be one of the candidates and honored to be chosen.  My qualifications included the following:
    1.       High School Boy’s State representative
    2.       Star Scout
    3.       Scholarship to University for my undergraduate degree
    4.       Scholarship to LSU law school
    5.       Honorable discharge from U.S. Army
    6.       C.P.A. license
    7.       30 years as a State auditor, City Finance Director, County Chief Accountant,
    8.       M.B.A. Master’s in Business Administration  
    You think that all this experience and professional license and graduate degree would make me qualified to perform the duties, but this City manager chose, with the support of the elected Mayor and Council to disregard the voters choice and stripped me of my statutory duties.
    So let me understand, when you vote for a professional to do the job of the City Treasurer, the appointed (not elected) City Manger doesn’t like what that professional is doing and uses the Mayor and Council to misdirect their attention.
    Please vote for Measure L so the next City Treasurer can perform those duties that are set in State law to oversee the financial expenditures of the city manager.

    This has all been reported in Citizens Journal months ago. To say it was a kangaroo court would be an understatement.

    I respect your perspective, but it is helpful for the public to see a different viewpoint on the issues. One other data point is the report prepared by an independent consultant regarding three of the ballot measures (including Measure L). You can review the report at: https://www.oxnard.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/1.15.20_Independent-Analysis-Report-of-Starr-Ballot-Initiatives_FINAL.pdf.
