  • 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...

  • Ron Kaye: Party needs to clear the air

    Assemblyman Mike Gatto's political director sent out an email blast urging Democrats in the 43rd Assembly District to show up with “as many friends and family as possible” on Jan. 12 at the IATSE union hall in Burbank to elect a dozen...
  • 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...
  • Krikorian's communications director files police report after polling station incident
