Chair of the General Plan Advisory Committee
As the Chair of the General Plan Committee, Brown virtually led the stakeholder appointed advisory board through the last two years, while remaining in close communication with staff and consultants by having meetings in addition to GPAC meetings.
She required fair and balanced discussions surrounding affordability in Ventura and educated members to the fact that housing is needed for our residents, workers and seniors. She worked hard to ensure that the Housing Element would be not only include feasible infill locations but also ensured it was submitted to the state in a timely fashion with pro-housing designation so the city could gain access to additional federal funding...
An Experienced Leader During Tough Times
Brown has worked hard to be an accountable leader for the sixth district. Accountable to workers, the budget and her campaign promises. If re elected, she will be the only veteran councilmember left. When she ran in 2013, 2016 and 2018, she promised the same things, to be a champion for affordable housing, economic revitalization and a voice for the underserved.
Lorrie has lived up to these promises, to balance the conversation around housing and economics, social justice and policy and bring a perspective unique to her experience while uplifting the narrative around marginalized populations who live and work here.
She is running to continue this work.
