Blatz Seeks Growth Control

By Sondra Murphy

Ojai currently has two applicants for consideration for the Ojai City Council opening. Both are attorneys who have been involved in the local community for many years.
On Tuesday afternoon, Paul Blatz submitted his application for consideration for the open council seat. He joins Leonard Klaif, who was covered in Wednesday’s OVN.
“The reason I decided I would like to put my name in is because I have a great deal of respect for all the remaining members on the council,” said Blatz, a 26-year resident of Ojai. “I felt the council, in terms of who they appoint, should have as many applicants as possible. And I truly believe that my presence on the council would help assure the sustainability of the community.”
In his application submitted to the city, Blatz lists his participation in civic and professional groups in addition to his legal experience. Included are his memberships with Rotary Club of Ojai-West, Ojai Pergola Committee, Ojai Valley Chamber of Commerce, Ojai Valley Living Treasures board, and he is the Ojai Performing Arts Theater Foundation board counsel. He is also a member of the California and Ventura County bar associations, other county legal groups and has been a Ventura County Superior Court judge pro-tem since 2002.
Blatz has operated his law office in Ojai for more than 17 years, is a past Redevelopment commissioner and served on the Ojai Planning Commission for nine years. He also ran for City Council in 1996 and 2002.Ojai currently has two applicants for consideration for the Ojai City Council opening.
