On Monday night, the Montrose-Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce held our Glendale City Council candidates forum at the Sparr Heights Community Center and it was a great success. All six city council candidates – Incumbents John Drayman and Dave Weaver, Rafi Manoukian, Mike Mohill, Garen Mailyan and Chahe Keuroghelian – were there and answered all of the questions that we presented to them with candor and civility. Montrose-Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce board member Alfonso Milanese from Callaway Real Estate was the moderator and presided over the event with professionalism and just enough humor to keep the candidates on their toes. The Chamber would like to thank all of the city council candidates for participating in our event and coming up “the hill” to meet us where we live!
Don’t forget that we are heading to the polls on April 5, so be sure you make an informed decision.
