Yes on Parks

I support Linda Parks for supervisor because of her courage and integrity. I attended Triunfo Sanitation District meetings from the fall of 2003 to the fall of 2006 before I was elected to the Triunfo board.

No on Parks

I have been reading the letters to the editor section of your newspaper about the legacy and accomplishments of Linda Parks. I would like to add a few that her supporters have not mentioned. When Mrs. Parks was on the Thousand Oaks City Council she would not vote to repair or update the Hill Canyon waste treatment plant. Because of […]
