Glendale Now Accepting Statements of Interest for Vacant City Council Seat

At its June 11, 2019 regular meeting, the Glendale City Council approved a motion for a future appointment to fill the vacancy on the City Council created when Councilmember Zareh Sinanyan resigned effective June 7, 2019. The term of office for the appointed seat runs through the March 2020 General Municipal Election.

To be considered, persons interested in being appointed to fill the Council vacancy must submit a Statement of Interest in writing to City Attorney Michael J. Garcia.  The Statement of Interest should also include a statement of qualifications/reasons the candidate believes are pertinent to the City Council’s consideration in making the appointment.  The Statement of Interest may be delivered by personal delivery or mail to 613 East Broadway, Room 220, Glendale, CA 91206, Attn: City Attorney Michael J. Garcia, or by email to  MJGarcia@glendaleca.gov. The Statement of Interest must be received at the City Attorney’s Office no later than 5:00 p.m. on Monday, June 17, 2019 (postmarks not accepted). To be eligible to serve on the City Council, applicants must be at least 18 years old, a citizen of the United States, as well as a resident and registered voter of the City of Glendale. The appointed person must be able to attend Council meetings every Tuesday. Attendance at City Council workshops and special meetings of the City Council may also be required.

The Council will consider the appointment at a Special Meeting to be held on Friday, June 21, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. in Council Chambers at City Hall.  If the Council does not make an appointment within 30 days of the vacancy (July 7, 2019), then it must immediately thereafter call a special election.
