“As a grassroots public affairs organization, it is important for us to provide our community-at-large with an opportunity to learn more about the candidates running to represent them in the LA City Council,” remarked ANCA-NSFV Chair Kevin Boyadjian. “We are grateful that both campaigns agreed to partake in the Candidate Forum, which will explore the candidates’ positions on a number of issues facing the twelfth district.”

The forum will be moderated by Asbarez Editor Ara Khachatourian.
