Missouri Gov. Matt Blunt said Thursday that he named Paul Anthony Martin as Missouri's Eminent Domain Ombudsman, where he will advocate on behalf of private property owners in safeguarding their land.

New eminent domain laws created the Eminent Domain Ombudsman position, which is within the office of Public Counsel within the Department of Economic Development.

Martin will travel throughout the state advocating on behalf of Missouri property rights and safeguarding the landowner bill of rights. He most recently served as a prosecutor in the United States Office of Special Counsel in Washington, D.C.

Martin has also worked as a law clerk in the office of U.S. Sen. Jim Talent.
