Oxnard, CA – Jeffrey Burum, a 59-year old former career Air Force officer and businessman officially filed as a candidate for District 5 Supervisor on the Ventura County Board of Supervisors, a seat currently held by John Zaragoza who is being termed out in 2020.
“There’s no better way to help than to join with so many people in the community and accept to undertake this task and work together to turn challenges into opportunities,” said Burum. “For several months, I have been meeting and listening to folks from different walks of life, backgrounds, and political views. What we’re discovering is that we all share a deep love for this beautiful region and want to see it move forward responsibly,” he added.
Burum said his major priorities include helping to create well-paying jobs by working with business and labor, supporting law enforcement with the necessary resources to improve public safety, greater government transparency with all sectors of the community included on important issues and protecting the region’s environment that impacts the quality of life in Ventura County.
“We’re united and focused on what we can each contribute to address our needs today and make sure that the legacy for future generations is one we will be proud of for our children and their children,” says Burum. “I am not a career politician, and I see the price Oxnard is paying because of years of poor leadership that now expects to get promoted! That’s just wrong. The people of this community and the County of Ventura deserve better than empty promises, deficits, and taxes. I trust the voters will see a clear difference,” he concluded.
