VC Supervisor District 1, 3, 5 Candidate Forum & Measure B



By George Miller

The Oxnard Inter-Neighborhood Council held an ambitious election forum on 2-5-20, covering all  VC Supervisors’ races- District 1, 3, 5, plus the  Measure B Oxnard Government Accountability and Ethics Act.

From District 5,  Retired CPA/CFO/USAF Major/Vet Jeff Burum, Mayor/retired Teacher Tim Flynn, Mayor ProTem/Attorney Carmen Ramirez and Harbor District President/Longshoreman Jess Herrera. School Board Trustee/Social worker Veronica Solis was not able to attend due to a school board meeting conflict.

Candidate turnout was very light from other districts:

From District 3, public school educator Kim Stephenson

From District 1, write in candidate/attorney Trevor Quirk

Only three questions were asked on: homelessness, socioeconomic equity, protecting environmental resources, plus opening and closing statements. Answers were similar to those at the 1-23-20 Latino Issues Forum, but tighter and more focused. See our two articles on this event.  There were a few audience-submitted Q&A’s.

Measure B– Oxnard City Manager Alex Nguyen presented this in detail (about 1:30 on the video)

It was again disappointing that ONLY the city’s viewpoint was offered and only two minutes were allocated per public speaker. So, here’s a dissenting opinion: POLITICS | What’s Wrong with Measure B

Here’s an event video:


Forum candidate participants: L-R: Trevor Quirk (1), Jess Herrera (5), Kim Stephenson (1), Carmen Ramirez (5), Jeff Burum (5), Tim Flynn (5)
