Ojai's candidates for mayor and city council participated in a raucous forum at The Gables of Ojai Oct. 3. With the absence of a moderator, what was envisioned as a “meet and greet” event turned into a roundtable of sorts, with audience members interjecting questions on everything from the necessity of a mayor to the city's annual rainfall.
Each candidate was given the opportunity to address the group with an introduction. All spoke of their commitment to Ojai and the water issue in particular.
