Beware Western & Northern Counties


Monique Limon is tone-deaf to your needs.

PLAZA PARK, OXNARD

Oxnard’s many, many bad roads.

Assemblywoman Monique Limon, whose Assembly District 37 covers Santa Barbara, Goelta, Carpenteria, Buellton and Solvang in Santa Barbara County and Oxnard, Fillmore, Ojai, Ventura and Santa Paula in Ventura County, likes to promote ten of her 2019 legislative bills: AB209, AB255, AB406, AB540, AB585, AB1062, AB378, AB539, AB1057 and AB1680. I invite you to research them on leginfo.ca.gov. Five of the bills are environmental bills catering to her Santa Barbara area constituents, where she lives, and the other five bills include funding for family leave, childcare, community service and consumer finance. One of the bills is for non-citizens.

Oxnard is the largest city in her district, with more than twice the population of Santa Barbara and it is a city stricken with severe homeless problems, under-performing public schools, harmful pollution from industrial development, school sites nearby the highest levels of toxic pesticide use in the state, a city hall rife with mismanagement and repeated financial disaster, and bad roads in overwhelming numbers.

Yet, in spite of the scale of Oxnard and its many problems, not one of Ms. Limon’s ten authored legislative bills helps the city exclusively in any way like getting its homeless out of Plaza Park and off the streets nor does it fix the many, many bad roads located in every corner of the city.

If Ms. Limon ascends to Senator of Senate District 19, it is logical to conclude, there will be little improvement to the areas outside Santa Barbara, as we have seen for many years. She will continue directing the political spoils to her Santa Barbara area special interests at the expense of the western and northern county communities.
