Supervisors Gorell, Long and Parvin, the three “conservative” members of the Ventura County Board of Supervisors DID vote for a second hearing to rescind the current limit on campaign donations, opening the door further to undue influence of big money donors. (Here’s their first letter. There were too many stupid things in it, so here’s their second try.)
Shame on them!
On March 14th, agenda item noted as #44 was squeezed between two proclamation ceremonies – a letter to the editor by Assemblyman Steve Bennett was all the warning we got about this destructive action that could wipe out 20 years of election reform.
GET READY! SECOND PUBLIC HEARING IS ON TUESDAY, MARCH 28, 2023 AT 10:30 A.M.
Public comments and letters will be taken in as usual, but we need more people in the seats, as well!
Now called Agenda Item #50. Second Public Hearing Regarding Adoption of an Ordinance of the County of Ventura Repealing the Ventura County Campaign Finance Reform Ordinance.
