  • Appointed treasurer needed by city

    On March 1, Brittany Levine wrote an article topped by the headline, “Manoukian hopes to help quash Measure A,” which would make the city treasurer an elected position. He hopes for strategic support to serve in that position. The City Council...
  • Run to polls to vote for Freemon

    In Kurt Sawitskas' letter to the editor on March 9, he stated he was not voting for Jen Freemon because her husband was a former president of the Glendale Teacher's Association. Really? Strange, because one of the GUSD's recent school board members,...
  • Mayor Quintero disavows support for City Council candidate Edith Fuentes

    Mayor Quintero disavows support for City Council candidate Edith Fuentes
    Mayor Frank Quintero on Tuesday said he was shocked to see his picture on a campaign mailer sent to Glendale residents this week by City Council candidate Edith Fuentes. He has not endorsed Fuentes, he said. “I strongly disagreed with her...
  • Council candidates Sam Engel and Edith Fuentes take heat at forum

    City Council candidates on the campaign trail have lobbed critiques at city employees, bashing their pensions and salaries, and, at a campaign forum Wednesday, their ability to serve on the council. Two retired city employees, Sam Engel and Edith...
  • Watchdogs, elections officials say nothing out of line at polling stations

    Watchdogs, elections officials say nothing out of line at polling stations
    Accusations of electioneering and voter intimidation tactics at polling stations in immigrant-rich neighborhoods -- a recurring gripe in Glendale -- re-emerged Tuesday, despite the observations of watchdogs and elections officials. Polling investigator...
  • Manoukian is wrong for the job

    I wholeheartedly agree with city treasurer Ron Borucki that his position should be an appointed one. Some positions in city government should not be based on politics. The city treasurer needs to have a background in banking. We need the best-...
  • Glendale City Council candidate not firm on foam ban

    Glendale City Council candidate not firm on foam ban
    While several City Council candidates said they’d be willing to look into a plastic foam container ban at a campaign forum Thursday night, few would give a direct answer as to whether they would support such a law if elected. Dozens of cities...
  • Police captain leads the Army of Pink

    Police captain leads the Army of Pink
    Glendale Police Capt. Carl Povilaitis received the most online votes, garnering him the Man in Pink title in Glendale Adventist's Army of Pink campaign, a biennial event created to call attention to breast cancer awareness and the importance of early...
  • Ron Kaye: Respect for the Council of Governments

    One of my first impressions when I called the San Fernando Valley my home nearly 30 years ago was that this vast middle-class enclave suffered from a bad inferiority complex, like it was populated by a lot of Rodney Dangerfields who just couldn’t...
  • What makes Sinanyan a 'front-runner'?

    Your description of a Glendale City Council candidate as “considered a front-runner” in the field piques my curiosity (“Sinanyan keeps seat for now,” March 13). This undefined pronouncement makes me wonder who is doing the...
  • Why additional languages on ballot?

    I have just received the sample ballot with the second half written in Armenian. This must be at least questionable to all other minorities wondering why they are not included. But to print it in all other languages would be even more questionable to the...
  • Why not Spanish and Korean?

    Yesterday we received the sample ballot for the April 2 Glendale Municipal Election. Is our household the only one puzzled by ballot being in English and Armenian exclusively? First, let's make clear that in our opinion one should understand the...
