James R. Bozajian's Ballot Statement













Get Microsoft Silverlight

I was elected to the Calabasas City Council in 1997, and re-elected in 2001, 2005 and 2009. I have served as Mayor four times. Previously, the City Council appointed me to two terms on the Calabasas Community Policing Commission (1993-97).

I received a Bachelor of Arts in History from UCLA, and graduated from USC Law School. I have been employed as a prosecutor at the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office since 1990. I currently serve on the governing boards of the Los Angeles County Association of Deputy District Attorneys, the Agoura Hills/Calabasas Community Center, the Calabasas Historical Society, and the California Contract Cities Association.

Even in a tough economy, Calabasas remains financially secure. By prudently managing fiscal resources, the City Council has accumulated an impressive reserve fund of approximately $18,000,000. The city has worked cooperatively with community leaders to bring appropriate private enterprises to Calabasas. With the help of innovative policing initiatives, our crime rate remains low.

I have consistently demonstrated my dedication to maintaining our unique environment and quality of life by striving to control growth both in and around Calabasas. I helped lead the successful fights to acquire and preserve Ahmanson Ranch (2003) and King Gillette Ranch (2005) as public parkland. I was the primary sponsor of the voter-approved Calabasas Open Space Initiative (2005) and the Calabasas Historic Preservation Ordinance (2008).

Calabasas boasts a diverse array of municipal properties, including our wonderful Civic Center and 10 other parks and recreational facilities. We have made vast improvements to our roadways to alleviate traffic congestion and beautify our neighborhoods. The city operates a network of shuttles and trolleys to offer better public transportation services.

The City Council has forged a strong relationship with the Las Virgenes Unified School District by providing critical financial support for special programs and adopting creative joint use agreements. I proudly supported and campaigned for all five school bond measures submitted to voters during my tenure on the Council. To accommodate the expansion of educational and recreational programming for senior citizens, the city recently took the first steps toward building a senior center.

Experience and enthusiasm count. I have greatly enjoyed being a part of the City Council for the past 16 years, during which time I have never missed a meeting and never missed a vote. I respectfully request your support so that I may have the honor of serving you again.

Sincerely,

James R. Bozajian
Calabasas City Councilmember
