School Board GCC Endorsemen’s Announced

The Armenian National Committee-Political Action Committee recently announced its endorsement of Mary Hamilton and Victor King for Glendale Community College Board–as well as ist endorsement of incumbent Jeanne Bentley–Hank Scheetz and Dennis Rihn for Glendale Unified School District Board in the April 1 Municipal Elections.

"After reviewing candidate questionnaires and meeting with these candidates–we believe that they are the right people for the job," stated Rafi Manoukian of the ANC-PAC.

All candidates were asked to respond to a questionnaire prepared by the ANC-PAC in order to understand each candidate’s position regarding discrimination in Glendale schools–incorporation of the Armenian Genocide into the curricula and assistance for immigrant students adjusting to US schools.

ANC-PAC members met with these candidates at an informal reception last Thursday during which they had the opportunity to get to know each candidate better–following which the ANC-PAC announced it endorsemen’s.

"Each of these candidates has expressed great concern regarding the situation faced by all ethnic minorities in Glendale schools. We feel that these candidates will work tirelessly to combat discrimination in Glendale schools," added Manoukian.

For more information on supporting these and other candidates–please contact the ANC-PAC at (818) 409-6860.
