Summer Burkhead started this petition to Ventura City Council

We are approved/disqualified for so many types of services based on our before tax income. Living in a very expensive county- every penny counts! So many of us are disqualified for services and even for assistance from the county based on our "gross" income which we all know is so far from our "net" income. The income in which we all house and feed our families. We should be approved/disqualified on the income we actual have in our pockets. Things such as assistance, health care, schooling for our children, lunch programs etc. Need to be based on the income we actually bring home to our families after we pay the Government's comfortable salaries. If "WE" the actual people of the community fight hard enough we can change the way Ventura County processes our applications for assistance. We all know how much of a struggle it is living in this very high cost of living county. Let's make them aware of it from a poverty stricken community's point of view! After all they are supporting the people on the streets that continue to make bad and poor decisions daily, while the hard working, underpaid struggling parents are denied even the simplest of services. Let's change this asap!!!!!
