CHAMBER ENDORSES MIGUEL LOPEZ IN RECALL ELECTION
 
Following the Oxnard Chamber’s candidates’ forum on March 8, its political action committee met to discuss what they heard at the forum and what they knew about the candidates.

“The Oxnard Chamber of Commerce opposed the city council recall election when petitions were being circulated among voters. However, the recall is here. If the current mayor is recalled, we believe the best candidate to succeed him is Miguel Lopez. Miguel is an open-minded champion for Oxnard and would assume office without any preconceived agendas,” said Chamber CEO Nancy Lindholm.
