Armenian community activist Greg Krikorian enters Glendale assembly race

PanARMENIAN.Net - Longtime Glendale Unified School District Board member Greg Krikorian has entered the race for the 43rd State Assembly district in the upcoming elections.

“I want to be a voice for our community,” said Krikorian, who has already won the endorsement of Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich.

An active member of the community, he has served on the board of directors of the Glendale Chamber of Commerce and the Burbank Economic Development Task Force.

The new 43rd Assembly district serves Burbank, Glendale, La Crescenta, Montrose, La Canada, Atwater Village, Los Feliz, East Hollywood, Little Armenia and Griffith Park. The primary is this June 6th and the General Election is November 5th 2012.

Krikorian is a second-generation Armenian-American, whose grandparents escaped the Armenian Genocide in 1915. They came to America as orphans, fleeing the murders of their families to begin a new life.
