The Armenian National Committee of Glendale would like to congratulate all the newly elected public officials including Councilmembers Rafi Manoukian and Dave Weaver; Glendale Unified School District Board of Education Members Nayiri Nahabedian and Mary Boger; Glendale Community College Trustees Vahe Peroomian and Tony Tartaglia.
We are confident and hopeful that the incumbents to office along with the new members of our city government will set a high ethical bar, a new unified tone for the rest of the city to follow and work side by side to represent all of the richly diverse residents of Glendale.
Additionally, we would like to extend our gratitude to all candidates who participated in Glendale’s Municipal Elections in hopes of bringing fresh ideas and improvements to our city. It takes courage, commitment and personal sacrifice to run for any civic service and their dedication to the betterment of our city is truly commendable.
Finally, we would like to thank Glendale City Clerk, Ardy Kassakhian who once again went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that all segments of the Glendale community were properly informed and participated in the electoral process, as well as, the 25,337 citizens who exercised their right to vote on Election Day. It is our hope that fellow Glendalians will follow in their footsteps in future elections.
The Armenian National Committee Glendale Chapter stands ready to work with our elected officials, city’s institutions and citizens’ groups toward unifying our jewel city and working toward the common goal of building bridges and bettering the City of Glendale.
