The entire CAPS team congrates Ventura City Council member Erik Nasarenko for his recent appointment to be the new District Attorney for Ventura County, selected by the Ventura County Supevisiors to be the new District Attorney for Ventura County. At CAPS we have had the pleasure of working with Erik for the past 7 years as Deputy Mayor (2013-15), Mayor (2015-17) and most recently as District 4 representative. We all greatly appreciate his collaborations with us and his dedication and strong leadership for our community.
Erik’s departure creates an open position on the city council for District 4, (which is roughly east of Victoria and north of the 126 freeway).
The council is in the process of reviewing applications for candidates to represent District 4 and is on schedule to appoint a new council member by February 25th. Everyone at CAPS look forward to working with the new representative along with her or his colleagues on council: Mayor Sofia Rubalcava (District 1), Deputy Mayor Joe Schroeder (District 7), Lorrie Brown (District 6), Jim Friedman (District 5), Doug Halter (District 2), and Mike Johnson (District 3).
