Oxnard Firefighters Raise Red Flag

Oxnard Firefighters President Jeff Donabedian today asked Senate Candidate Hannah Beth Jackson to stop her campaign from using the National Weather Service telephone number for her calls to voters.

"Last week, just as we were being notified by the National Weather Service of fire danger, voters were receiving campaign phone calls from Hannah Beth Jackson's campaign from the same telephone number.

"The telephone number that appeared on caller-ID was the number first responders rely on to receive fire danger alerts and tsunami warnings from the National Weather Service. A deputy sheriff reported receiving the call from the number we rely on to alert us, only to find himself on the receiving end of a Jackson campaign pitch.

"If this is a mistake by the Jackson campaign, it must be corrected immediately. If it is done intentionally, it is a terrible campaign tactic and reflects poor judgment."

Jeff Donabedian President, Oxnard Firefighters Association IAFF Local 1684
