Commissioner Hodge

A clean environment and a thriving economy. We have proved you can have both.

The Oxnard Harbor District is the economic engine/anchor of the local economy employing 7000 residents locally. It is a crucial partner with Naval Base Ventura County together ensuring a vibrant economy of 35,000 good paying middle-class jobs.

During my first tenure as a Harbor Commissioner we have seen historic growth. We reduced costs by consolidating positions, eliminating redundant management, and negotiating contracts that are fair and responsible. We have increased revenue by leasing unused properties, customer promotion, and working collaboratively with all stakeholders.

We are now one of the greenest ports in the nation. Our new environmental framework is unprecedented in its scope and purpose. We have significantly reduced water pollution through storm drain enhancements, converted our vehicles to natural gas, and electrified the port so that ships will not idle. This has created the largest single reduction in air pollution in Ventura County’s history.

I would be honored to have your vote to continue the environmental and economic progress that was started four years ago. I promise to be accessible, creative, and a good steward of the port’s resources, which are yours as a citizen.
