Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • AUMENTAR EL FINANCIAMIENTO PARA LAS ESCUELAS PÚBLICAS Lucharé para asegurar que nuestras escuelas cuenten con el financiamiento que necesitan, haciendo que la Propuesta 30 sea permanente, aumentando el financiamiento más allá del piso de la Propuesta
  • MANTENER LOS EMPLEOS DEL ENTRETENIMIENTO EN NUESTRA ÁREA Como secretario municipal, trabajé duro para asegurar que los estudios filmaran aquí y así mantener los empleos del entretenimiento donde pertenecen.
  • ASEGURAR QUE LAS ARMAS NO ESTÉN EN LAS MANOS EQUIVOCADAS Hace muchos años nos asaltaron a mano armada a un amigo y a mí en el Brand Boulevard en el centro de Glendale: la experiencia fue aterradora y me dejó una impresión duradera.

Experiencia

Biografía

Ardy Kassakhian has a proven record of leadership and the ability to bring people together to get things done. As Glendale’s City Clerk for the past ten years, Ardy modernized the clerk’s operation with new technology and environmentally sustainable practices that save taxpayer money. He took the initiative to provide election information in more languages to increase voter participation and expanded government transparency and accountability by shining a light on the inner workings of City Hall.

Ardy is running to put his experience to work for the people of Assembly District 43. His priorities will be building a growing economy, strong public schools, and safe and healthy neighborhoods. As the son of immigrants, Ardy wants every Californian to have the same opportunity to reach for the American Dream that his family had. Building on his experience as Glendale’s chief elections officer, he will work to increase voter turnout and give voters more information about who is funding campaigns.

Ardy was first elected as City Clerk in 2005, making history as the youngest person ever elected to public office in Glendale. As City Clerk, he is responsible for overseeing city elections, enforcing campaign finance regulations, providing public access to city records, and advising the City Council on procedures. Ardy serves as Secretary of the Glendale Economic Development Corporation, designed to attract new businesses to Glendale and spur job creation.

Earlier in his career, Ardy led the Armenian National Committee of America Western Region and its advocacy program, working with elected officials at every level of government on efforts to promote international human rights and expand tolerance.

Ardy graduated with a degree in history from UCLA and is currently completing a Masters in Public Policy. With his long record of public service and advocacy, he earned a spot at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government Senior Executive Program for State and Local Government in 2009 and completed the Coro Foundation Executive Fellowship Program.

Ardy has deep roots in the district, where he grew up and attended public schools. Ardy’s dad is a retired scientist and his mom is a proud member of the Glendale Teachers Association, with 30 years of teaching experience. Ardy’s wife Courtney is an elementary school principal and the grandchild of immigrants from Mexico and Spain. Ardy and Courtney live in Glendale with their young son.
