ENCINO—On September 29, the Armenian community of Encino and the San Fernando Valley is urged to participate and vote in the Encino Neighborhood Council Elections that will be held from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the Encino Community Center.

There are four Armenian candidates running for this election.  They are: incumbent Talar Derderian who is running for re-election as the Planning and Land Use Representative; John Tashtchian who is a candidate for Public Safety Representative, Vic Chelebian who is a candidate for Religious Organization Representative and Hrag Kitsinian who is a candidate for Volunteer and Service Organization Representative.

Executive Board Member of the ANCA-SFW Nichan Kulukian commented that “we have a very talented group of Armenian candidates running in this election and it is imperative that stake holders of the community come out to support them”.

In Encino, stakeholders are individuals who live, work, go to school or use other types of services in the communities represented by the council.  Stakeholders do not need to U.S. Citizens or registered voters.  All individuals who have an invested interest in the area are encouraged to get out and vote.  In order to vote, a stakeholder needs documentation from their respective organization validating their membership.

Community stakeholders are urged to meet at the Court Yard of Holy Martyrs High School located at 5300 White Oak Blvd., in Encino starting at 10:00 A.M. on Saturday September 29, 2012 in order to obtain their stakeholder documents.  All organizations will be present to distribute these documents. Residents of Encino can vote by supplying a driver’s license or other documentation showing residence in Encino.

The election will be held at 4935 Balboa Blvd., Encino CA. 91316.

The Armenian National Committee of America, San Fernando Valley West advances the social, economic, cultural, and political rights of the area’s Armenian American community and promotes increased civic participation at the grassroots and public policy levels.
