Fighting For A Cause During Difficult Times

Lorrie's career background is in redevelopment, she was a project management lead for two million dollar capital improvement projects but when Governor Brown ended redevelopment agencies in 2011, her career field ended and she had to reinvent her career. She did not give up  and was determined to make a difference.

As an Independent Voice and Advocate for the underhoused, under employed and under-represented these are the things she has done and stood for in her public life:

- She raised three young men who are now adults who graduated from local public schools

- She advised the City Council on how to best spend funding in the City of Ventura as a board member of the Parking Advisory Commission 

- She stood alone as a candidate in 2013 to begin the difficult City at-large discussion about homelessness, affordable housing and the cities development needs - as a platform issue, even thought she was told not to.

- She made an unprecedented run for city council almost unseating Jim Monahan and got within 53 votes with an all volunteer grassroots campaign team

- She got her career experience working six years for a City Redevelopment Agency, administrating capital improvement programs which were established to fulfill special district economic development initiatives

- She labors for the County as a dedicated public servant for the Healthcare Agency, referring wrap-around services for the unhoused

- She voted for the creation of one of the first grassroots 501-C(4) organizations in this region to successfully support progressive candidates

- She marched with MICOP, CAUSE, SEIU 721, SURJ and other local organizations against the detainment of young children of working immigrant parents

- She protected credit union members as-fiscal watch-dog and Supervisory Committee member of Pacific Oaks Federal Credit Union

- She stood for parents and students of VUSD against racial injustice on local school campuses

- She fought with Restorative Justice, Ethnic Studies Now, The Lab and SURJ to challenge the inaction of a former Superintendent

- She was endorsed by the Sierra Club as a thoughtful leader and partner in the fight for environmental justice
