IN HER OWN WORDS

image8

At the League of Women Voters forum in Camarillo, Kelly Long responded to public questions about her role as Supervisor of Ventura County District 3.  

Kelly, What's Your Position on Fracking In Ventura County?

Easy question isn't it?   Watching Kelly struggle to answer is anything but easy.

Environmental Justice

What is environmental justice?   Kelly's difficult-to-follow answer involves something about 'all the birds' and 'trying to get the homeless out of there.' Her response starts at about 1:28 into this video.

Safe Water

Kelly falsely claims she 'fought the oil industry' to protect our local water supply.  But in fact she simply went along with Supervisor Bennett’s initial motion to suspend fracking and then, months later,  pushed to have THE COUNTY PAY FOR TESTS so they could EXPAND fracking near the Camarillo Airport.  Watch Kelly misrepresent how she voted.

Health Services for Disadvantaged Communities

Kelly explains the role she‘d like you to think she played supporting public health care. It's followed by her opponent's fact check.
