BURBANK—The Armenian National Committee of America – Burbank (Burbank ANCA) recently hosted its candidates’ reception on February 8, 2015. The intimate event was held at the beautiful home of Apo and Nora Tashjian. City Council and School Board candidates addressed the guests and received contributions from the community.
Over the years, Burbank ANCA has continuously strived to increase the level of civic participation by members of Burbank’s Armenian community. The candidates’ reception is only one example of Burbank ANCA’s effort to engage Armenian community members with civic activities.
“With each round of elections, we are faced with the challenge of not only meeting our previous Armenian voter turnout rate, but surpassing it. This is critical in maintaining and strengthening the Armenian voice in the Burbank community,” said Zareh Khachatourian, Burbank ANCA Co-Chair.
Burbank residents should have received ballots for Burbank’s all-mail Primary Election by now. Residents should complete their ballots as soon as possible. As a reminder, the ANCA’s endorsed candidates are:
City Council: Emily Gabel-Luddy
Board of Education: Armond Aghakhanian, Steve Ferguson, Vahe Hovanessian, and Roberta Reynolds.
For Board of Education, vote for only three candidates, even though four have been endorsed.

The Armenian National Committee of America–Burbank advances the social, economic, cultural, and political rights of the area’s Armenian community and promotes its increased civic participation at the grassroots and public policy levels.
