What a sad statement on our community if Supervisor Judy Mikels has to invite the press to her Simi Valley home to dispel lies that her challengers are conveying out in our neighborhoods.
Everyone is sick of political campaigns today, and the tactics that Judy Mikels has to deal with – lies by challengers to avoid real issues, most likely because there are none – are a prime example of why.
Supervisor Judy Mikels has done a great job representing us as the 4th District supervisor. Public safety services are as strong as ever, the county is very healthy fiscally, and county services are reaching the needy families it needs to reach.
Supervisor Mikels has played a great role in the county’s successes, and even beyond her direct work with the county, she’s always out and about in our community — for example, working Friday nights at nonprofit organization events, or on Saturdays throwing out the first ball at youth baseball opening days, or even Sundays when local groups ask. She also attends chamber mixers and donates time to the Moorpark College Foundation, helping to raise money for scholarships.
It’s a thankless job. But her challengers would not know that, because they have no idea what the job commands. It’s not just about sitting on your rear end in meetings every day of the week.
Judy Mikels has worked hard to make the County of Ventura stronger and safer, and for that she deserves our support for re-election.
