Glendale Officials React to Kim Kardashian's Possible Future Bid for Mayor


Kim Kardashian


City council member Rafi Manoukian thinks Kardashian would make 'an excellent mayor,' while former mayor Ara Najarian offers her chance to be his honorary chief deputy.

Kim Kardashian's declaration that she wants to run for the mayor of Glendale, California in the future has drawn reaction from several city officials. While city spokesman Tom Lorenz clarified that there is no public election for the position, two city council members expressed their support for the reality star.

City Councilman Rafi Manoukian told E! News, "I would support her. I think she would make an excellent mayor." City Councilman and former mayor Ara Najarian also thought "it's a great idea." In fact, he claimed to have reached out to her representative to offer her "the position of honorary chief of staff to my office to help her get acquainted to Glendale."

In another interview with On the Red Carpet, Najarian explained about his offer. "I know Kim is busy all over the world and all that but if she's able to come in a few days a week or a few days a month to see how the city works and see all the great things we do," he said, "if she wants to learn how Glendale runs this is really the best way to do it."

Najarian also expressed hope that Kardashian would attend Glendale's annual Armenian genocide commemoration. He believes that her attendance "would make a great impact on the city." Unfortunately, Kardashian's spokesperson said the estranged wife of Kris Humphries won't be able to make it.

Another Glendale official commenting on Kardashian's intent to run for mayor was City Clerk Ardashes Kassakhian. He told Los Angeles Times that by talking about her possible political bid, the reality star "has done what we try to do election after election after election." He added, "I think it would be one of the more closely followed elections in Glendale's history."

Kardashian talked about her political intention in the bonus clip from "Khloe & Lamar". When speaking to sister Khloe Kardashian, she said, "I've decided I'm going to run for the mayor of Glendale." She went on, "Noelle [Keshishian] is going to head my campaign, but it's going to be in five years. I have to buy a house there [because] you have to have residency."
