Dr. Miguel Lopez, for Oxnard Mayor!
For many of us, Oxnard’s Recall Election is about families and their safety, the health of our businesses, and our community’s future. Each election is an opportunity to come together, develop our strengths, and improve our great city.
I was born and raised in Oxnard, attended Hueneme High, earned my undergraduate degree at UC Santa Barbara, and Ph.D. at UCLA. I worked in Washington D.C. to address our country’s greatest challenges, and I want to do the same for the hard-working people of Oxnard.
I returned to serve as your Community Affairs Manager with Oxnard Police and was named Employee of the Year. I championed public engagement through difficult times, and brought focus to our underserved neighborhoods. We rebuilt relationships, established partnerships, and were recognized by the State and the U.S. Department of Justice.
Is Oxnard better since recent elections? Your stories and challenges you face daily motivate me to once again serve. We have established neighborhoods and we have new developments. I believe that all-inclusive leadership is the best approach to broader solutions in a community as diverse as Oxnard.
Our campaign represents hard-working families, retirees, safety, education, agriculture, community and business. As Mayor, I will bring our community together and greatly appreciate your vote and support.
“Many families – including mine – remain concerned about the City of Oxnard,” said Dr. Lopez. “Weak leadership under Mayor Flynn failed to avoid the recall. Now, the special election will cost taxpayers nearly $500,000. For many, these systemic problems are more than just about Measure M and Wastewater rates: it’s about our families, our safety, and our businesses. It’s about all of us!” Dr. Lopez said.
Dr. Lopez has worked as a Teaching Associate at UCLA’s Graduate School of Education and Information Studies as well as the UCLA Chicana/o Studies Department. He also served at the U.S. Department of Education for the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans, and as the Policy and Research Manager with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute in Washington, D.C.
Dr. Lopez also completed an Executive Education Leadership Program at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, and now serves as Director for the new Center for Academic Success at California State University, Los Angeles.
