Tim Flynn is focused on jobs for a better future

Before the pandemic, Ventura County has been in economic decline for at least 5 years. Its economy has been struggling to capture higher-paying clean jobs. Then the pandemic increased unemployment to 13.3%. Today the Leisure & Hospitality sector still has an unemployment rate of 18.1%. 

Tim believes we must create higher-paying jobs for the entire workforce. 

This requires the kind of leadership demonstrated by Mayor Flynn in winning the Amazon Distribution Center for Oxnard.
  • Mayor Tim Flynn proposed that Oxnard compete for Amazon’s headquarters.
  • He recognized the competition as a great opportunity to market Oxnard’s assets.
  • The City Manager Assembled a team to focus on the project.

Leadership, imagination, teamwork, hard work, and persistence won.

As Supervisor, Tim will continue to attract new employers for a stronger Oxnard.
