The Ventura County Democratic Party is claiming victory in the Ventura City Council election. Their GOTV organization helped to elect a new member to the city council.

Elections in off years usually have very low turn out rates. A effective GOTV organization can make the difference for a candidate or a cause. I am not convinced that off year elections are in our best interest. Do you support them?

Congratulations to Erik Nasarenko. Make the most of your time in office. Many people worked hard to give you a chance to help your community.

Congratulations to Ventura City Council's Top Vote-Getter Erik Nasarenko Unprecedented efforts from Democratic Party boosted votes Camarillo, Calif., Nov. 18, 2013-- Erik Nasarenko, who was endorsed by the Ventura County Democratic Party, received the most votes of any candidate for the Ventura City Council election on Nov. 5. Nasarenko received more than 10,000 votes; the next-highest vote-getter received about 7,700 votes. Nasarenko's victory indicates his strong candidacy and successful campaign, which included unprecedented efforts from volunteers of the Ventura County Democratic Central Committee (VCDCC). To support the three endorsed candidates for city council (the others were Lorrie Brown and Richard Francis), the VCDCC raised more than $13,000, made more than 12,000 phone calls, and identified 1,000 new voters. "Democrats enjoy a 10-percentage point voter registration advantage in the city of Ventura, but conservatives still dominate the council, and too often use it to serve a special interest-driven agenda," said David Atkins, chairman of the VCDCC. "Erik's victory and the close votes of our other endorsed candidates demonstrate that we can change the city council, so it finally represents the Democratic values Venturans believe in." Francis and Brown finished the election within three votes of each other, and were 41 and 44 votes, respectively, of winning a seat on the council. Nasarenko ran for city council to "make everyday life better for all Venturans," according to his campaign. He advocated the improvement of basic city services, from fixing roads and trimming trees to making sure park bathrooms are clean and open. He also pledged to donate his city council salary to completing Ventura Community Park. Nasarenko serves as a deputy district attorney, where he prosecutes domestic violence and child abuse crimes. Prior to becoming a prosecutor, Erik worked served as chief deputy to the Los Angeles school board president and as a communications director to the Los Angeles and Pasadena school districts. Erik began his career in public service as an aide to Former U.S. Representative Anthony Beilenson. The son of Ukrainian immigrants, Nasarenko grew up in the San Fernando Valley and has a B.A. in History from the University of California, Irvine. He received his law degree from Loyola Law School.

I was a life long republican and leader in Ventura County. But as I watched the GOP destroy the economy and as I watched their efforts to try and destroy the USA and our freedoms I dropped out of the GOP and became and democrat and started donating to the democrats. God Bless America!

Listen to the dumb ass punk above, claiming to be a former Republican when we all know very well that this punk is a shill for the Ventura County Dumbocrats just pretending to be someone else to try and denigrate the GOP. This dumb ass punk must think everyone else is as dumb as he is to buy this crap. What a complete idiot!!!

Regarding the VC Dumbocrats claiming victory in the Ventura City Council elections, that is such a joke! We reelected 3 Republicans (Jim Monahan, Neal Andrews, and Mike Tracy) and kicked Richard Francis's sorry ass to the curb (even though he spent the most money out of all the candidates). We also stifled Lorrie Brown's first attempt at public office. She was propped up by the VC Dumbocrats even though she didn't have a minute's worth of experience in local politics. We also got rid of Brian Brennan (thank God!) who decided not to run after he realized his number was up.

Erik Nasarenko was elected not because he is a Dumbocrat, but because he was perceived as being strong on law enforcement and public safety (given his position as Deputy District Attorney). He also received a lot of votes from people with young families in the City who are feeling that they are not adequately represented on the City Council.

It is because of sorry ass punks like the one above that I and many thousands of others left the GOP.

Listen to the dumb ass punk above trying to continue the charade that he's a former Republican who went over to the dark side and became a Dumbocrat. What a lying sack of poop! It's because of lying sacks of poop like the one above that thousands have left the Dumbocrat Party and have joined the winning team at the GOP.

Prepare to get your ass kicked to China in the mid-term elections next year, poop stain! Also, prepare to hand over the White House to a Republican in 2016, punk!

LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is because of sorry ass punks like the one above that I and many thousands of others left the GOP. If you are still a republican drop it and register as a dem!

The abject failure of Oblundercare is going to take down quite a few Dumbocrats in the mid-term elections, including Bimbo Brownley.

And it is also this expert's opinion that the bad taste in people's mouth from having their health insurance cancelled because of Oblundecare is going to carry over to the 2016 presidential elections.

Good luck, punk! You're going to need it!

Word on the street is that tea party tom of Ventura has now signed up for Obamacare. In the past he could not get insurance because of his pre-existing condition of Dumbassitus.

Not on your life, punkmeister! I have a great health insurance plan that I earned because I chose to go to school, advance my education, get a good job, and live as free as possible from the grips of government.

You, on the other hand, appear to one of those ne'er-do-wells who is doomed to rely on the government for everything from health insurance to teaching you how to wipe your ass.

Good luck, punk. You and your government reliant friends are going to need it!

Richard Francis's ass was used to mop up his body parts from the floor after being destroyed by the winning Ventura City Council candidates (Andrews, Monahan, Tracy & Nasarenko). Francis also came within a few votes of getting his ass whipped by a young political novice, Lorrie Brown.

You might want to assess your chances a little more closely if you decide to run again, Francis. It's obvious the voters have gotten much more conservative since you were on the Council last.

LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My diagnosis of Tea Party Tom of Ventura above is that his reference to "Francis's Ass" clearly shows that Tea Party Tom of Ventura who also claims to be on the VCRCC is a latent homosexual who needs to come to grips with his sexuality. This can also be seen in his many homophobic comments he makes on this blog. I think he would be a happier person if he were to come out of the closet so he could quit living a lie. God bless.

As usual, the stupid punk above (now posting as Dr. Freud) has no response to my previous right-on-target comment so he reverts to his usual kindergarten name-calling routine. I just sit back and laugh every time I kick this punk's ass so thoroughly that he becomes speechless and goes back to his toddler days.

LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's ok Tom. Many men in your situation (Latent Homosexual) struggle with their decision to come out of the closet. For your own happiness I urge you to quit hiding the fact that you are gay and to just come out. I know you are afraid that others in the GOP will turn their backs on you but even John Boehner said the other day that republicans need to embrace gay republican candidates. God Bless.

The dumb ass punk is now disguising himself as Dr. Freud, which is pretty hilarious given the fact that this guy definitely needs some serious psychotherapy to get his head right and also to pry it from Oblunder's butt.

I think Dr. Punk Ass Freud should officially come out of the closet and embrace his own homosexuality instead of projecting it on other people.

LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tom. Once again you make a references "dumb ass" "Oblunder's butt" that show you are a latent homosexual. The reason you are such an unhappy person who constantly attacks everyone on this blog is because down deep you are hurting because you are hiding from the world the fact that you are a homosexual. Until you come out of the closet and start living the life you really want to be living you will not be happy and you will continue to attack everyone around you. God Bless.

What a hypocritical idiot this punk is. He accuses me of attacking everyone on this blog when he does it constantly. He says I'm a latent homosexual when he is constantly talking about sticking heads up Tony Strickland's ass.

That's the trouble with these Dumbocrats. They can never own their own behavior. They would rather project it onto other people or downright deny it (the punk does both of these). And if they find themselves in need due to their own stupidity they want the government to step in and fix their miserable lives.

Keep projecting your own failings on everyone else, punk. It is certainly keeping me entertained.

LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tom. I seriously suggest you go see a therapist who can help you deal with your latent homosexuality. A therapist can also help you with strategies on how to break the news to those you love that you have been living a lie. Please get help my friend. God Bless.

The punk above seems obsessed with homosexuality. Usually when people are obsessively focused on an issue like that, it is indicative of some deep emotional turmoil they are suffering.

I think we all need to say a prayer for Dr. Freud (the fraud). Only when he finally steps out of the closet and embraces his inner gayness will he be truly free.

Please seek help, my friend. We will all be praying for you.

Tom the only one you are hurting by not embracing your latent homosexuality is yourself. I understand that you feel the need to lash out at others because you are living a lie, so I do not hold your outbursts against you. You need help Tom, you know your real feelings and you should embrace them. Quit running, you will be a happier person and those in the GOP you seem to be afraid of are not really your fiends if they shun you simply because you came out and admitted who you really are. God Bless and have a happy holiday season.

Dr. Fraud is apparently as nutty as a fruitcake (in the spirit of the holiday season). Therapy is readily available to you, my paranoid little friend. In fact, most health insurance plans provide for a certain number of visits with a licensed professional who can help you work through your issues, Dr. Fraud.

You no longer need to suffer alone. You can get it all out in the presence of a professional who will help you get in touch with your inner child who has been longing to break out for so long.

God bless, my disturbed little friend. And have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Tom my friend. For Christmas give yourself and gift and come out of the closet and out of the darkness that is your life. Embrace who you really are and quit living a lie. God Bless and please seek therapy.

Dr. Fraud has clearly gone off the deep end with his nonsensical comments and projection of his own inner secrets onto other people to make himself feel better. It's OK, Fraud, you can admit you're gay. The world is a much more accepting place these days.

I know you are white trash who grew up in the Deep South where gay-bashing was an Olympic sporting event, but here in California we have a much more enlightened attitude about these things.

Just don your women's underwear and come dancing out of the closet, Fraud. We all understand your need to do this.

Tom the more you lash at those who are trying to help you the more you show the fact that you are a latent homosexual who has yet to come out of the closet because you are afraid that as a member of the VCRCC you will be shunned. If they do not accept you for who you are they were never your friends. God Bless.

Again Tom, I know you claim to live in Ventura and claim to be on the VCRCC, but that should not stop you from seeking therapy so that you can openly admit you are gay, its ok, your friends already know and will understand. God Bless.

Listen to this little frightened punk ass little girl! He continues with his childish little comments and saying people are gay. Everyone knows that when someone is insecure about their own sexual orientation they often try to project this onto other people to make themselves feel better. That's exactly what's going on here with the punk.

He's probably dancing around in women's underwear right as we speak, posing and preening in front of the mirror just like the guy in "Silence of the Lambs." Better check the punk's room for moths.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
