Peter C. Foy
Ventura County Supervisor
Peter C. Foy was elected as Ventura County Supervisor of District 4 in 2006, unanimously selected Chairman of the Board by his bipartisan colleagues in 2008 and overwhelmingly reelected in 2010.
Since taking office, Foy has brought a fresh perspective and an independent spirit to the Board of Supervisors. From day one, he has worked with colleagues from both sides of the political aisle, County officials at all levels and civic leaders to craft creative ideas and consensus solutions to County-wide challenges.
Supervisor Foy believes the first priority of local government is to ensure the personal safety and quality of life for citizens, their families and the communities in which they live. To accomplish this, he has always led his colleagues to provide full and consistent funding to law enforcement, allowing police, sheriffs and prosecutors the resources they need to do their jobs and keep dangerous criminals off our streets.
He believes strongly in smaller government and a more inclusive approach to public policy. His meaningful ethics reforms include campaign finance reform, introducing legislation to place term limits on Ventura County Supervisors and stricter rules on public officials and lobbyist relationships. Throughout his term, Supervisor Foy has fought for real fiscal accountability that is reflected on the taxpayers’ bottom line and for wise stewardship of our public lands and precious natural resources.
Foy is chairman of the California chapter of Americans for Prosperity, an organization with 1.6 million members nationwide battling for his signature cause of limited government.
Peter Foy, along with other prominent California elected and appointed officials and industry leaders (County Planning Commissioner John Petty, City Planner Jim Morrisey, Civil Engineer Robert Righetti) stepped out onto the stage at the CA Inland Empire Agenda 21 Forum and lent his expertise and experience as an elected official to warn of the dangers of regionalism and Agenda 21. This forum, because of the key speakers that attended, finally gave legitimacy to what had previously been scoffed at as conspiracy theory. Here were community leaders and industry professionals all confirming, and showing through example, the erosion of our freedoms and personal property rights through what we now know as Agenda 21, regionalism, smart growth, sustainability ect.
