Ventura County

Central Committee

The Democrat and Republican Parties each have county level elected officials that lead at the local level. The Ventura County Republican Central Committee is comprised of 22 people representing the, segmented by five districts. These are elected positions and responsible for various local activities to benefit the party, including:

  • Candidate Recruitment & Training
  • Outreach to Registered Republicans
  • Fundraising & Marketing Assistance
  • Expand Voter Registration
  • Influence Decisions of Elected Officials that Benefit Republican Goals
  • Liaison to the State Party

In Ventura County, the Democrats have controlled all categories for many years. The State Senate, Assembly, Congressional Seats, and Supervisors have easily won and held seats. In some cases, The Republican Party didn’t even have a Republican candidate. It’s time to change those odds, and that’s needed at the Central Committee level. Only registered Republicans can vote for Republicans for these positions.

After careful scrutiny and examination of their background and fortitude needed during these difficult times, the following candidates are endorsed by Move The Needle.

Candidate for Central Committee District #2


I’m a homemaker and mother of an Iraq War Veteran, married for 26 years, and blessed to have three children and two grandchildren. I have lived in Ventura County for over 26 years and love our country and the great state of California.

While working as a full-time manager and buyer in international trade, I simultaneously obtained a B.S. degree in business management from Pepperdine University. I’ve co-owned a franchise servicing hospitals with newborn photography and am growing my online corner store.  

I earned a Certificate of Graduation as a real-time reporter, having fulfilled NCRA’s (National Court Reporting Association) requirements from Tri-Community Adult School after doing the bulk of my training and education in stenography at Bryan College in Los Angeles.

Having served as the Ventura County Chair of the 2022 Freedom to Choose (School Choice) initiative and having managed and maintained a Recall Gavin Newsom Tent for nine months, I’m not only a common-sense Republican but an ACTIVE and COMMITTED Republican who will work hard and feverously to win local seats in our county.  

Our Path to Victory:
. Recruit Dedicated Candidates Who Share Our Values
. Support Our Candidates and Help Them Win
. Plan Outreach Events to Increase Republican Voter Registration, Volunteer  Participation, and Community Involvement.
. Work Together and Win Together
