Keep Commissioner Smith

CFROG is asking you to support Planning Commissioner Bruce Smith. LOCAL ACTION FOR LOCAL IMPACT.

He was appointed by Supervisor Steve Bennett and confirmed by the Board of Supervisors on Feb. 28. Supervisor's Peter Foy and Kelly Long were not present for the vote. Now, Supervisor Peter Foy is asking the Board to remove him without cause. Commissioner Smith has a wealth of institutional knowledge that will be vital to the current VC General Plan Update Process. The General Plan document governs all land use decisions in the unincorporated areas of Ventura County and will be in effect until 2040 - CFROG is working to ensure the foundation is put in the General Plan for policies that will ensure public health and environmental protection are priorities when it comes to oil and gas project reviews for the next 20 years. 

HERE is Supervisor Foy's Letter asking the Board to remove Commissioner Smith. 

HERE is the letter drafted in partnership by Los Padres ForestWatch and CFROG, other organizations from across Ventura County are signing on.
