We now wait for the court’s decision
that we hope will be in less than 30 Days

Come to the Democratic Club meeting (you don’t have to be a member) at the Art Center on Monday, March 23rd, at 7:00 PM to hear how Ojai FLOW thinks things came out.

Ojai rate payers have paid over $5 million dollars
and increasing at $9,315 per day (See counter below)
because Golden State has prevented us from getting
the Casitas water rates that we voted for.

On August 27, 2013, nearly 90% voted YES

It has been:

582 days 44 minutes 23 seconds

Golden State’s lawsuit is costing us


  • $9,315 – per day
  • $388.12 – per hour
  • $6.46 – per minute
  • $0.11 – per second


Don’t fool around with Ojai,


We went over the top, with 87.4% voting Yes.

This is unheard of and we should all be proud to be part of such a united community. This election will go down in history and used to show that people
can control their destiny.
