LOS ANGELES, CA – The Armenian Council of America-PAC (ACA-PAC) is proud to announce its endorsement of candidates for the March 3rd Los Angeles Municipal elections.
The endorsement process included a careful evaluation and analysis of the background of each candidate, their commitment to public service, actions they have taken towards promoting good governance towards the City of Los Angeles and its citizens, and their future goals towards the prosperity and positive growth of the city.
“Having the largest Armenian American constituency in the U.S., Los Angeles has been home to hundreds of thousands of citizens of Armenian descent for many decades,” read the statement. “We have been an integral force in the fabric and makeup of this racially, ethnically, religiously, socioeconomically and culturally diverse city. Therefore, it is our civic duty and moral obligation to continue to contribute to this great city and pass down that sense of responsibility and pride to succeeding generations of Armenian Americans by exercising our voting rights at the polls.”
