45 people are vying for the vacant seat on Glendale City Council

GLENDALE—On June 11, after bidding farewell to City Councilman Zareh Sinanyan, who resigned his seat to take a position in the Armenian government, the Glendale City Council decided to fill the vacancy through an appointment and not call a special election, which reportedly could cost taxpayers upward of a million dollars.

According to MyGlendale.com, the city council opened an application process, emphasizing that the only qualification for the vacant position was being a registered voter and a resident of the City of Glendale.

The Council did state that they did not wish to give a potential candidate for the 2020 March election the leg up, however they stopped short of completely disqualifying those considering a run for the March elections. As of 5 p.m. on June 17, which was the application deadline, 45 individuals had applied to fill the vacant post.

The Glendale City Council will appoint a replacement for Sinanyan’s vacant seat during a special council meeting at 10 a.m. Friday.

Below is the list of the 45 applicants, whose complete applications are available online. https://www.ci.glendale.ca.us/government/council_packets/CC_HA_062119/CC_SpMtg_Item1_062119.pdf
