  • 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...
  • Voters too stupid to elect treasurer?

    I am writing to urge Glendale voters on April 2 to vote “No” on Measure A. Glendale has always had an elected treasurer, and twice in the past voters turned down council-driven attempts to gain exclusive control of the city’s chief...
  • Search for next superintendent of Glendale Community College winds down

    The next superintendent of Glendale Community College probably will be one of 12 candidates who will set foot on campus in early April for interviews. At a board of trustees meeting this week, Donna Voogt, administrative dean of human resources for...
  • Glendale City Council hopefuls feel the heat at forum

    The final City Council candidate forum Wednesday was perhaps the most direct in calling candidates out on their perceived faults. From having Councilwoman Laura Friedman defend her voting record to asking longtime City Hall critic Herbert Molano how he...
  • Elected officials, voter participation and North Glendale all go together

    Elected officials, voter participation and North Glendale all go together
    North Glendale has historically been the cradle from which elected officials hail. It’s also home to the neighborhoods with some of the highest voter participation rates. All the current City Council members live north of the freeway and in the...
  • Glendale and Burbank political races impacted by social media

    Before P.J. Gaynard goes to the voting booth, he admits that he typically doesn't know much about local politicians. But the 37-year-old Glendale resident is glued to Twitter and Facebook, and that's where he found Glendale City Council candidate Roland...
  • Security firm's claim rejected

    Glendale Unified has rejected a claim filed by a candidate for school board who alleges the district engaged in discriminatory and unfair business practices when it severed ties with his security firm in 2007. Ali Sadri — who is running in the...
  • List of candidates in Glendale municipal election firms up

    The pool of candidates in the Glendale City Council race has grown to 13 after two people filed the necessary 100 signatures in time to qualify for the April 2 ballot Tuesday afternoon. Although the technical deadline was Thursday, it was extended by...
  • News-Press endorsement for Glendale city clerk: Kassakhian

    Though it can be a job that is not well-understood by the general public, the position of city clerk is a vital one, particularly when it comes to ensuring open and fair elections. For that reason, we endorse the reelection of City Clerk Ardy Kassakhian,...
  • News-Press Endorsement: No on Measure A in Glendale

    On three occasions, Glendale voters turned down proposals that would have converted the City Treasurer from an elected position to an appointed one. They should reject it again. The treasurer oversees a $372-million investment portfolio as part of a...
