Your neighbors who want to draw the lines

The application period closed Tuesday for those who want to be considered for the Citizens Redistricting Commission, the panel created by Proposition 11 to draw legislative district lines in California following the 2010 census.

Across the state, more than 31,000 eligible applicatants responded to the call, including 497 from Ventura County (350 men, 147 women). Now that the deadline has closed, their applications have become public. Here's the list of Ventura County applicants. Among the local applicants are some familiar names from civic affairs in the county, including former Moorpark Mayor Patrick Hunter, Ventura City Manager Rick Cole and former Ventura City Councilman Todd Collart.

To continue along the process, these folks will now be required to submit a supplemental application, which must include a couple of short essays and recommendations from others. The public is invited to comment on applicants, pro or con.

Good luck to those who stepped forward. It takes some courage to submit oneself to such public scrutiny; already, information about their political party affiliation, family heritage and household income is available for inspection online.

Isn't that former Simi Valley Assemblywoman Cathy Wright on the list? And former Camarillo City Manager William Little?

There are a plethora of names on the list that have partisan agendas and/or are known liars.

That's an interesting comment, Katie, because I didn't see your name on the list.

Sticks and Stones buddy! Feel better?

I should have put my spouse or daughter or son up to it - I see some relatives listed as well.

You started it, lady.

I commend all these folks for putting themselves (and family members) out there for what is to be a highly visible and public process, not only in the selection of Commission members but also the process of drawing up the new districts.

At least the State is following through on its pledge to make this an open, transparent process. Unlike Obama, who promised to put the healthcare debate on CSPAN and then did the whole thing behind closed doors.

Let's keep on topic folks.

Many of the people on that list are politically insane. They have no ability to make a logical decision in regards to redisticting. Their mission is to prevent a fair election and establish fascist Republican rule. Their ultimate goal is to make government so weak that it can be taken over and controlled by them. They are criminals.

Please, if you see a right-wing radical weasel on that list speak up.

Lefties too - like Rick Cole (Ventura City Manager), Christy Weir (Ventura City Councilwoman), and Todd Collart (former Ventura City Councilman).

Lefties, like Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi, are the ones who are ruining our country right now. They are trying to establish fascist policies (like forced, government-run healthcare, forced, so-called "energy conservation" policies that will be the final nail in the coffin to our failing economy, and so-called "job creation" legislation that will add debt, economic distress, and extreme financial burdens to our future generations).

As Grover Norquist so famously stated - "We need to shrink government down so small that we can drown it in a bathtub." Excellent idea.

Republicans hate government because they are criminals. Look what small government did for banking. That's the small government Republicans want. Republicans want no security guards to stop them.

Fascists torture people and set up secret C.I.A. units that only answer to them like Dick Cheney did. Fascists spy on their own people like George Bush did.

Our tax dollars don't belong to the Republican's corporate friends it belongs to the People.

Ventura County is blue because people see right through people like Eric the Republican cleric.

I’m wondering when anyone knows what Canada’s immigration prerequisites are. As an old fart, I probably don’t have the “skills” they want. They’ll clearly make sure I’m fleeing a broke country, looking for decent health.

I just saw this video. Drinking without eating anything makes me sick. I dont know how these people do it. What do you think? http://www.drunkorexia.ca

I and my guys ended up digesting the nice items found on your web site and before long came up with an awful feeling I had not thanked the website owner for those strategies. These young men appeared to be glad to read them and have now simply been taking pleasure in these things. Appreciation for turning out to be very considerate and for going for this kind of marvelous issues millions of individuals are really desperate to learn about. Our own honest regret for not expressing gratitude to sooner.

Over the last 25 presidential elections, Ventura County voters have backed the winner 24 times, or over 95 percent of the time. It is one of only a handful of counties in the nation that has been such a predictable bellwether.
