GLENDALE, California – Having recently been the focus of public scrutiny after her 72-day marriage, it seems that reality television star Kim Kardashian is ready for a different kind of commitment.
“I decided I’m going to run for the mayor of Glendale,” Kim blatantly tells her sister Khloe in an unaired clip from the show Khloe & Lamar.
Although no official announcement has been made, in the episode, Kim shares her 5-year plan involving settling in and obtaining official residency in Glendale. In the video published by E! Online, Kim states, “You have to have a full residency in Glendale. It’s going to be in, like, 5 years. So I have to buy a house. Noelle and I are looking into all the requirements.”
Why Glendale? According to E! Online, Kardashian chose the said county because of her Armenian roots. Glendale is “like Armenia Town,” she says.
The idea is ridiculed by many who have expressed their disapproval on Twitter and other social sites. Fortunately for Kardashian, some Glendale public officials share a different view.
“I would support her. I think she would make an excellent mayor,” Glendale City Councilman Rafi Manoukian tells E! News.
Moreover, former Mayor and incumbent city councilman Ara Najarian believes, “It’s a great idea. I have offered her the position of honorary chief of staff to my office to help her get acquainted to Glendale.” She then explains that Kardashian would have to run for City Council first as a stepping stone.
However, Glendale City Clerk’s Office states that there have yet to be inquiries from any interested 2017 election candidates. – Rappler.com
