Neighborhood Bulletin From RiverPark Resident, Orlando Dozier
Yesterday the books officially closed and the field of candidates running for Oxnard City Council and Mayor are set. As expected in true California politics, a bum-rush of people jumped into the race for City Council. There is a total of 13 City Council Candidates. With so many people eligible, you can see how easy it will be for RiverPark issues to get drowned out in the buzz of 13 candidates.
I urge everyone to take all opportunities to voice your concerns to any of us candidates that you bump into and let’s keep our issues at the forefront. I believe the Neighborhood Council will be putting together a candidate forum. When this happens, please plan on attending and making your voice heard.
Today, I will be attending the city meeting downtown to hear the developer’s proposed parking plan for RiverPark. I’ll post a recap of what was discussed later.
