THE CANDIDATES

   
 
 

 

JAMES R. BOZAJIAN
Age:47
Occupation: Calabasas City Councilmember

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.
