Word on the street is that the signature gatherers are telling people that they must sign all the petitions. This is not true. If you choose to sign a recall petition for a particular Council member you are not required to sign for all.

Signature gatherers are telling people that the city is robbing the Wastewater Enterprise fund. This is not true. The rate increase goes directly into the Wastewater Enterprise fund, and not the Oxnard General Fund.

Carmen Ramirez Oxnard Councilwoman 

Re-Elect Councilwoman Carmen Ramirez to Oxnard City Council - 2018

For the past six years, I have led Oxnard to make substantial changes. Oxnard is becoming a better city and I am proud of my record, helping to make that happen.

  • I helped lead the effort to bring our trash and recycling services back under city control, saving taxpayers $2.5 million the first year alone.
  • I initiated a utility assistance program for low-income seniors, the establishment of a youth commission, and a preference for businesses that hire Oxnard residents.
  • I helped put an end to no-bid contracts.
  • I have supported city wide street repairs, more public participation in city decisions, better use of tax dollars and fought against sprawl.
  • I am the leader working for full restoration of Ormond Beach wetlands and pushing for action on the cleanup of the HALACO toxic dump.
  • I led the effort to ban a fourth power plant on our coast.
  • I voted to stand up for Oxnard and not settle the lawsuit with the former City Manager.

I pledge to continue these and other efforts – to enhance police and fire services for safer neighborhoods, expand city services such as parks, sports facilities, tourism and the arts, and to create more and better jobs for our residents.

Please stand with me once again.
