Maria Elena Ramirez, sister of the late Ventura County Supervisor Chair Carmen Ramirez, urging the Board of Supervisors not to gut county campaign contribution limits.

Ventura County Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 on March 14 to repeal its rules on campaign contribution limits and expenditures, raising campaign contributions from $750 per contributor to $5,500.

The second hearing on the ordinance will be March 28 at 10:30 a.m. at the Ventura County Board of Supervisors Hearing Room, 800 S. Victoria Ave., Ventura. If the repeal is adopted at that meeting, it will go into effect 30 days later.
