Ventura County supervisors seek community feedback to ensure the recruitment for the next county executive officer to replace Mike Powers, who resigned March 10.

The county executive officer executes, leads, and coordinates the management and administrative policies and directives of the Board of Supervisors. As the principal administrative official of the County, this is a critical position for the County.

The short survey is designed to collect information from the community to help identify unique and important characteristics necessary for this position, in addition to the skills, characteristics and expertise determined to be necessary by the Board of Supervisors. Collected information will be used in designing interview questions and assessment activities that will assist the Board of Supervisors in determining whether candidates possess the attributes being sought.

The Board of Supervisors will make the final decision on selecting the next county executive officer and will determine which skills and characteristics are the most important for this unique position. Public input is an important part of this process. 

The survey will be open until, May 2, and can be accessed at:

Hard copy surveys are also available upon request by calling 805-654-2640.
