Oxnard City Clerk to Hold Educational Sessions for Residents Interested in Running for City Council in November Election
The Oxnard City Clerk’s office will hold three upcoming educational sessions for residents interested in running for City Council seats within Districts 1, 2, 5 and 6 in the November 2018 election.
The sessions will be presented in three segments:
Local Government and the City Council’s Role: The City Attorney’s Office will lead a presentation on a City Council Member’s function within municipal government structure, and include a brief training on state mandates that elected officials are subject to, such as the Brown Act and Political Reform Act (Conflict of Interest).
Running for City Council and District Voting: The City Clerk will walk participants through the mechanics of running for office, including the required paperwork, steps and procedures, and timelines for the campaign process. She will also speak on how voting by district is different from at-large voting.
What You REALLY Need to Know: Former Oxnard City Council member Dorina Padilla will present a unique “inside” perspective of her service on the City Council from 2012 through 2016, to help participants have a better idea of what they may experience when campaigning and if they get elected.
To run for City Council, candidates must be at least 18 years of age, a citizen of the United States and registered to vote, and reside in a District that’s up for election. All Oxnard residents are welcome to attend the informational sessions regardless of their district of residence.
Each session will be video recorded and posted on the City’s website at Oxnard.org.
For more information about the upcoming sessions, please call the City Clerk at (805) 385-7805, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
