  • Ballot may have marginalized voters

    Were the 21.6% of registered voters who actually turned out for the municipal election last month marginalized by the city clerk? For the past two elections, all ballots were translated into English, Armenian, Spanish and Korean. For the April 2...

    Online comments come back to haunt newly elected Glendale councilman

    Ron Kaye: Zareh Sinanyan admits racist remarks, expresses regret
