Transparency in government is paramount. The more the citizenry believes its best interests are a top priority of elected officials, the more confidence it has in local government.
The City of Oxnard placed Measure B on the March 3, 2020, ballot to assure the utmost transparency. The measure will limit the mayor and council members to three four-year terms and impose strict campaign contribution limits.
Measure B also will prohibit elected officials from accepting gifts from lobbyists and city contractors.
It also requires the city to post monthly financial reports on its website, as well as information on high-ticket city contracts.
The Chamber's Board of Directors reviewed Measure B prior to the city council placing it on the March ballot and voted to support it.
