More than 300 Supporters of Greg Krikorian for State Assembly Gather in Burbank to Celebrate Campaign Kick-Off

BURBANK—Joined by honorary host Governor George Deukmejian, along with dignitaries such as California State Assemblymember Connie Conway and California Senator Bill Emerson, Greg Krikorian, candidate for California State Assembly (43rd District), spent the evening meeting his supporters and discussing the upcoming choice on Election Day.

“On November 6th, Californians will have a choice. The first choice is politics as usual, led by Assemblymember Mike Gatto, who continues to drive businesses out of our state with burdensome regulations. His first choice has been cutting funds from our schools and serving the needs of special interest groups, not the constituents of the 43rd. You also have another choice—where you can vote for sending a new voice to Sacramento that will stand up for common sense policies and sustainable solutions. During the next 70 days, with your support, we can turn that choice into a victory,” said Krikorian.

In a preverbal passing of the torch from Governor George Deukmejian to Greg Krikorian, the Governor reflected on his own State Assembly race from 1962:

“50 years ago, I ran for California State Assembly. After I was elected, I quickly learned that education was the key to strengthening the workforce and creating jobs. With Greg’s experience on the Glendale School Board and as a small business owner, I know his leadership experience can get California back on the right track. For those reasons, we must work together to elect Greg Krikorian to State Assembly in November,” said Governor George Deukmejian.

The packed house at Arbat banquet hall included over 300 special guests that pledged their support for Krikorian’s State Assembly campaign. The evening’s guest list was comprised of friends and elected officials that included Burbank Councilmember Gary Bric, Glendale Councilmember’s Ara Najarian and Dave Weaver, La Cañada Board of Education Member Susan Boyd, Burbank Unified Board of Education Member Ted Bunch, Glendale Community College Trustee Vahe Peroomian, L.A. District Attorney candidate Alan Jackson, and former chair of the Republican Party of L.A. County, Jane Barnett.
