Can blind be considered as control for thermal comfort? Thanks.

I don't see definitive language from USGBC on this, but in my opinion, no. It would only affect radiant temperature when it is sunny, and not the other comfort factors listen in LEED, so it seems like a very limited tool.

Can I exempt a public space from the controls requirement? The owner doesn’t want visitors adjusting the thermostat all the time.
I have a naturally ventilated office with lots of operable windows. Do I need to add any other controls?
