Two longtime community leaders square off for Ventura County's Fourth District Supervisorial seat

KCLU News takes a look at the race for Ventura County's Fourth District Supervisorial seat.

Seat is wide open after current Fourth District Supervisor Bob Huber decides not to seek re-election.

It’s a race which pits two longtime community leaders against each other.

Moorpark Mayor Janice Parvin and former Moorpark Mayor Bernardo Perez are both seeking Ventura County’s Fourth District Supervisorial seat.

It’s currently held by Bob Huber, who decided not to seek re-election.

The Fourth District includes a big chunk of eastern Ventura County, including Moorpark and Simi Valley.

Janice Parvin has been a part of a number of non-profit groups in the county. She served on the Moorpark Planning Commission, The Moorpark City Council, and has been Moorpark’s Mayor for 14 years.

Parvin is facing Bernardo Perez. He’s also been active with a number of community groups. Perez served on the Moorpark Planning Commission, and the Moorpark City Council, including a term as mayor. He’s been a Ventura County Community College District trustee for more than a decade.
