NAJARIAN APPOINTED MAYOR, GHARPETIAN, DEVINE SWORN IN AS COUNCILMEMBERS By MassisPost Updated: April 29, 2015 GLENDALE - Monday, April 27 marked an important day for the Armenian-American community of Glendale as Councilmember Vartan Gharpetian was sworn in as the newest addition to the Glendale City Council and Mayor Ara Najarian was appointed Mayor, succeeding Zareh Sinanyan. Najarian, will be serving his third term as mayor since first being elected in 2005.
On Sunday, the Armenian Genocide Centennial Commemorative Event at the Alex Theatre in Glendale provided yet another opportunity for the Armenian American community to express those sentiments, while local elected officials offered sharp criticism of President Barack Obama and others who have yet to acknowledge the mass killings as a genocide. "In no time, the whole world will recognize the genocide and then, standing alone against the weight of the world condemnation, the Turks will have no choice but to accept the verdict of genocide and wear it around their neck," said Glendale council member Ara Najarian.
Following a series of development projects in downtown that were approved within council chambers last year, newly appointed Mayor Ara Najarian - who voted against those projects - said the coming 12 months will be focused on ongoing infrastructure improvements. "I know it's not the most exciting thing to tell you about the Chevy Chase sewer diversion project, [but] I know that these are the types of things we're going to be dealing with," Najarian said.
