Los Angeles, CA – The Armenian Council of America Political Action Committee (ACA-PAC) is pleased to announce its endorsement of Los Angeles Mayoral Candidate Eric Garcetti.
Garcetti has served as Councilmember of Council District 13, which includes the Little Armenia District, an area heavily populated with Armenian-Americans. Actively serving his constituency in areas of job growth, crime prevention and other major improvements, Garcetti is the only candidate that has a proven track record of revitalizing communities that have been badly hurt by the economy.
In addition, Garcetti has been an active and engaged supporter of the Armenian-American community and has participated in several community-wide events and programs, including establishing the Little Armenia Chamber of Commerce, setting in place a Sister City Program with Yerevan and contributing to the success of local Armenian community centers. For many years, the City of Los Angeles, through various means, has been highly supportive of Armenian Genocide events, namely the Genocide March in Little Armenia. Garcetti, as the area representative has been instrumental in these efforts. ACA-PAC trusts, as Mayor, Garcetti will be able to utilize his experience as Councilmember and support Armenian American issues within the entire City of Los Angeles.
“I’m very proud to receive the endorsement of the Armenian Council of America,” Garcetti said. “To have the official endorsement and trust of an Armenian organization with deep roots in Los Angeles is truly and honor and I look forward to continuing serving the Armenian-American community as the next Mayor of Los Angeles.”
