Jeff Gorell

Candidate Website

Number of lies told by or on behalf of Jeff Gorell so far:


Jeff Gorell is identified as a "former legislator" in an article in the Ventura County Star.

This is a bit misleading.
Jeff Gorell was deputy mayor of Los Angeles for more than six years--2015 to 2022--before taking a leave of absence this year, according to his LinkedIn page.
It would be more accurate to identify Gorell as such.
Gorell was elected to the California State Assembly but his term was back in 2010 to 2014.
Abe says, "What's so bad about saying Gorell was deputy mayor of L.A.?"

In an article in the Thousand Oaks Acorn, Jeff Gorell is reported to have said that since individual campaign contributions are limited to $750, every campaign is "grassroots".

This is disingenuous.


A mailer on behalf of Jeff Gorell identifies "The Community Leadership Coalition sponsored by The Lincoln Club of San Diego" as the one who paid for the ad. San Diego?

This is a dishonest game of hide-the-ball.

At a candidate forum on May 11, 2022, hosted by the Greater Conejo Valley Chamber, in response to a question regarding the government's response to the COVID-19 pandemic candidate Jeff Gorell said, "I think we can all agree that there was significant government overreach" and thought that Ventura County should have been run a little more like Orange County and less like Los Angeles County.

This is misleading because he himself played a significant role in Los Angeles's response.

A mailer paid for by Jeff Gorell for Supervisor 2022 poses the question "WHO Should Our Supervisor Represent?" and purports that candidate Claudia Bil-De-La Pena (sic) says Sacramento.

The quote by Claudia Bill-de la Peña is taken out of context.

In a letter to the editor in the Thousand Oaks Acorn, a writer states that since there is "no oil, gas or other natural resource that is endangering our community" or other "environmental threats" in the District 2 supervisorial boundaries, voters should vote for Jeff Gorell.

This is misleading as well as untrue.


Supervisor candidate Jeff Gorell asserts that aside from the lands in COSCA, Conejo Open Space Conservation Area, and in SMMC, the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy, the rest of the open space in Ventura County is "the agricultural community out there."

This isn't true or accurate.  

In a campaign video, Jeff Gorell says that he moved to Ventura County more than two decades ago because of our beautiful open space and inviting parks, and claims that they are being threatened by "Los Angeles-style urban sprawl."
