SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) – The Ventura County Agricultural Association is criticizing a California assemblyman [Das Williams], alleging he posed as a United Farm Workers union organizer in a dispute with a Ventura strawberry grower.
Association lawyer Rob Roy said Friday that a complaint will be filed next week with the Assembly Ethics Committee over a March 23 incident at Montalvo Farms.
Roy tells the Santa Barbara News-Press (http://bit.ly/HPR9r1) that Williams, a Democrat who represents Santa Barbara and Ventura counties, posed as a UFW representative and unlawfully entered Montalvo Farms property.
Roy says Williams was wearing UFW identification while accompanying union representatives.
Williams spokesman James Joyce III says Williams clearly identified himself as an Assemblymember and was allowed access to the property. He says Williams was within his rights to respond to constituent concerns.
