An Interview with Doug Green

Lorrie on her 2016 Campaign Run:
"Remember this election year is the first time Ventura voters will be electing a city council member in an even presidential election cycle. This means that three times the number of voters will turn out in numbers our council has not seen.
I am a Ventura native, born at Community Memorial Hospital and raised near Portola Elementary School, I raised my three boys in Ventura and believe in thinking independently and working daily for a better future for us all.
I offer a progressive perspective as an active community donor and volunteer to countless charitable organizations such as Ventura County Women’s Political Council, Ventura County Women’s Economic Roundtable, Ventura County Art’s Council, CAUSE, Citizens for Responsible Oil and Gas and United Way of Ventura and the Ventura County Sheriff's Association
I was a city staffer for six years working for Community Development in Project Management and I currently work for Public Work’s Watershed Protection District. My division helps protect our water resources.
I am the qualified choice for Ventura with a post graduate degree in Public Policy and Administration.
If you are serious about making a difference in local politics stand with me because I stand with you.
...the City of Ventura - one city with many voices, Ventura, I hear you."
