This is unbelievable. Here we go again.
The City of Oxnard gave us notice earlier today that it has requested a hearing with a judge ... tomorrow.
You may recall back in March, the city sued to prevent us from circulating an initiative petition to overturn their 87% rate increase for wastewater.
Tonight's announcement at the Oxnard City Council meeting was the culmination of a long series of events going back to late last year, when the city first announced its intentions to raise utility rates.
Even with the city's shameful and baseless lawsuit against us costing us five precious weeks of time, we pressed ahead and did what so many said could not be done.
But we knew better.Read more

This is your last opportunity to sign a petition (or submit signatures you have collected) to repeal Oxnard’s excessive 87% wastewater (sewer) rate increase.
Whether we succeed or not all depends on YOU.
The last opportunity to sign a petition (or submit signatures you have collected) to repeal Oxnard’s excessive 87% wastewater (sewer) rate increase is this weekend.
Our progress has been amazing. Considering the delay tactics and roadblocks that City Hall placed before us, we have come a long way since we kicked off our signature drive on April 30.
We are right on the edge of having enough signatures and the deadline is looming.
We'll all be celebrating mothers this weekend. If your mother lives in Oxnard, you can also give her the gift of a lower water bill by signing our petition to repeal the city council's 87% increase in the sewer rates. You could be saving her $326 per year!
Below is our petitioning schedule for the weekend. If you haven't signed yet, please find us at one of these events.Read more

Perhaps we got the Oxnard City Council’s attention when word got back to them that Judge Rocky Baio agreed to a hearing this Thursday, where we were to present our case for citing the City as being in contempt of court for not following his order to issue us the paperwork needed to start gathering signatures.
When the City Council emerged from closed session tonight, the City Attorney announced they had unanimously agreed to NOT appeal the judge’s order that the City Attorney immediately provide us the paperwork we have been fighting for.Read more
