Election Town Hall with Glendale City Clerk Ardy Kassakhian
Please join us on Tuesday, March 21 for an Election Town Hall with City of Glendale City Clerk Ardy Kassakhian at the Sparr Heights Community Center from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. At
the Town Hall, Ardy will be speaking about the Glendale General Municipal Election taking place on April 4. The Town Hall will include detailed information on the coming election from 6 p.m. to
6:30 p.m. followed with a question and answer session. Then from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. all of the city council candidates will do a meet-and-greet giving you the opportunity to meet them and ask them where they stand on specific issues as well as ask any specific question that you might have. According to Ardy, “There are many changes in store for this election. There are a lot of offices up for election and a ballot initiative for voters to consider. More importantly, for the first time in Glendale’s history, the Glendale Unified School District (GUSD) and the Glendale Community College (GCC) District will hold elections for trustees who reside in specific geographic areas instead of having all the trustees run in an at-large election. This means that each trustee will be elected from a specific area where they live. This means some important changes for our next election as some Glendale residents will not be able to vote for their area’s trustee in this coming election. I will explain this in depth at the Town Hall.
“It’s important to remember that these changes will not affect Glendale City Council, City Clerk and City Treasurer elections. These city-wide offices will still be elected by an at-large vote and all registered voters who live within the boundaries of the city may vote for up to three candidates running for City Council, one candidate for City Clerk and one for Treasurer. In addition to all of these different offices and changes to how we vote, voters will also be considering a measure that will address term limits for council members. Measure L will limit council members to three terms totaling 12 years of service. Remember: voting is one of our most important civic duties and we want to hear from you on April 4. Glendale votes and so should you!”
