Note from Phil Molina:
Friends,
 
The County Elections Department has issued the “Official Final” tally of the ballots for City Treasurer and I received the most votes of the four candidate who ran for the office.
 
Thank you for all your votes reflecting your confidence in me. Thanks to the three other honorable candidates who joined in campaigning for the position; it was a hard process to go through and we became even more friendly towards each other as the days moved along. I would like to think I can call on them and their specific expertise in the future for the benefit of the people of Oxnard.
 
I hope to be meeting with the City Manager, Mr. Nyhoff, other city staff, the Mayor and Elected officials to begin the process of joining the Oxnard City Team. There is a lot of hard work ahead of us, but if we work together, with a good staff and God’s help we can turn the city’s finances around once again.
 
I’m looking forward to meeting each employee in the City Treasurer’s Department soon and renewing friendships from another time with the staff in the city who were there in the late 1990s when I was the Finance Director.
 
Respectfully,
Phillip Molina

One Response to Molina is new Oxnard Treasurer-elect; Madrigal takes Council race

    Did you see that in Thousand Oaks the school board race to replace flaming liberal democrat Betsy Connolly almost happened? Challenger Angie Simpson, Amgen executive and former teacher, finished only 175 votes behind Betsy. There is hope yet. If Betsy gets recalled (details to follow in January) or retires due to bad health, then there has to be a new election down the road. Also, rumor has it that if Betsy leaves, so will Pat. Let’s hope Mike Dunn gets elected President of CVUSD on Tuesday. He deserves it, having been re-elected over and over the last 12 years, despite hideous slams by the Dark Side trying to smear him. Oh, the best news is that former Republican RINO, Peggy Buckles, was finally given the boot by the voters, after she switched parties in June.
