I am pleased to recommend Jeff Gorell for Ventura County Supervisor, Area 2 (Oak Park, Thousand Oaks, Camarillo).
Please vote for him – he has been a friend for many years.
Why vote for Jeff?
- Military Veteran: Gorell serves as a United States Navy Reserve Captain. Jeff has served two tours of duty in Afghanistan. While the community and I were enjoying our quality of life here in Ventura County, he put HIS LIFE on the line to protect us.
- Deputy District Attorney: Jeff worked as a criminal prosecutor in the Ventura County District Attorney’s office. He is tough on crime!
- Elected California Legislator: Gorell served as my elected California State Assemblyman from 2010 to 2014. He is a proud member of the Ventura County Republican Party.
- Long-term Resident of Ventura County: Jeff, while still a young man, has been a 20-year resident of Ventura County.
You can watch the last week’s debate with his opponent here. The discussion starts around 1:30 or so.
I am asking my neighbors, colleagues, friends, and fellow conservatives to vote for Jeff Gorell for Ventura County Supervisor, by or on November 8th.

Former long-time Mayor and Councilman for Thousand Oaks, Andy Fox has endorsed Jeff Gorell for Ventura County Supervisor.
While this is not a surprise, it is notable since Fox served for many years with Gorell’s opponent, Thousand Oaks City Councilwoman Claudia Bill-de la Pena, on the council.
One would think that serving so many years in a working relationship with someone, you, as an ex-pol, would simply sit out the election. Not so with Fox.
There must be a host of reasons.
I’ll let Andy speak to them himself.
This is a significant pick-up endorsement for Gorell.
Election season is upon us here in Thousand Oaks. Hence, Flap will be posting his FAVS and not so FAVS in this space.
It is unfortunate, that local press coverage has gone extinct in the Conejo Valley. We used to have extensive local coverage by three print genuine newspapers: Thousand Oaks New Chronicle (Sister of the Ventura County Star); the Los Angeles Times and the Los Angeles Daily News. But, alas, the internet and social media killed them for local political coverage.
Today, we have the Thousand Oaks Acorn and the Ventura County Star who remain. But, the Acorn newspapers are a weekly shopper and the VC Star, a real daily newspaper, has a very reduced reporting staff (except for local sports).
Nobody reads the remaining journals, either online or in print, and who would certainly delve into the body of one of them to read a letter to the editor.
Flap will give you the true poop and recommend for whom (as an informed citizen living in Thousand Oaks) you should vote.
