( This photoshop was created by a reader Brian Mack to focus on Peter Foy's ballot designation as a farmer. I wish Peter Foy luck as he tries to pass his reforms. We will be watching him and helping when we see needed changes get sidetracked. )
Peter Foy has taken office. Here is one article from The Ventura County Star about it.
The article fleshes out his term limits platform to 3 consecutive terms. After that a supervisor must return to private life, although they could run again after a term out of office.
It doesn't mention his package of ethics reforms. We should all help him by suggesting new ideas for ethical reform. What reforms would you like to see?
I will forward his team the suggestions after a few weeks so that everyone has time to think of ideas our community needs.
My first suggestion? Outlaw donations from developers who do not live in the county. They are trying to gain access that an average citizen does not get. There is a lack of trust created by government when most of us feel they are for sell.
