Oct. 5 is California Clean Air Day and this year the events celebrating the day on the South Coast will honor former Ventura County Supervisor Carmen Ramirez for her life and legacy of fighting for clean air in the County.

“This year’s California Clean Air Day holds special meaning because Supervisor Ramirez worked so tirelessly to improve air quality in local communities,” said Mary Anne Rooney, Board President for the Oxnard Harbor District. The Port of Hueneme is a founding member of the Clean Air Day Ventura County Working Group and continues to participate as a regional stakeholder and deeply committed public agency, which passed an ordinance to seek a ‘decarbonized zero emissions’ future for its operations last November. “We invite everyone to participate and take the pledge and become active on the Central Coast.”
