    Two Visions of America by Don Jans

    Something Rotten In Denmark

    By Mark Savalla

    Having survived 33 years as a police officer in Los Angeles I know “coincidences” do not occur often, and even less so when related to crimes.

    County Clerk-Recorder Mark Lunn and Treasurer-Tax Collector Steven Hintz decided not to seek their 4th terms in the June Primary, joining Assessor Dan Goodwin who chose not to run for his 7th.

    “All three men have endorsed their top assistants for the posts with which average residents regularly deal.  Included in their responsibilities are managing elections, collecting property taxes, and assessing the value of real estate.” (VC Star 3-18-22)

    Lunn’s top aide, Assistant Clerk-Recorder Michelle Ascencion, Chief Deputy Assessor Keith Taylor, and Assistant Treasurer-Tax Collector Sue Hogan all filed to replace their bosses. (It seems these three knew in advance of the unexpected announcements by Lunn, Hintz, and Goodwin.) How convenient with only three days left to file.   The officials’ decision not to seek re-election triggered a five-day extension to file for their positions.

    Thank goodness the “trigger” clause allowed Ventura County citizens to “apply” for these jobs.  But don’t be fooled, the 5-day extension gave outsiders only 3 extra days since the County Clerk Office was closed on the weekend.

    I would think people in these elected, leadership positions who care about fairness and service to the Ventura Community would have had more respect for voters and prospective candidates.

    So, before you vote, remember the people leaving anointed successors by endorsing their second in command, are part of the County government that imposed Sacramento’s mandates closing schools, churches, and businesses and suing those who did not comply.

    Now they want you to vote for those they trained to provide the same distasteful service we experienced.

    Vote for an outsider.
