Supports Governor Gray Davis and Federal and State Candidates
LOS ANGELES–The Armenian National Committee – Political Action Committee (ANC-PAC) announced its endorsemen’s today for the upcoming elections to be held on Tuesday–November 5. The organization has endorsed Governor Gray Davis and urges all Armenian-Americans to cast their votes for him. Governor Davis has been a consistent supporter of Armenian Causes and most recently signed legislation–backed by the ANC–that will create a California Trade Office in Yerevan–Armenia.
ANC-PAC has also made endorsemen’s of candidates vying for a number of statewide offices. The organization encourages Armenian-Americans to re-elect Lt. Governor Cruz Bustamante–elect Kevin Shelley as Secretary of State–and re-elect State Treasurer Phil Angelides. ANC-PAC also urges voters to support the re-election of Bill Lockyer as Attorney General–elect John Garamendi as the State’s Insurance Commissioner and elect Jack O’Connell as California’s Superintendent of Public Instruction.
ANC-PAC has endorsed a number of Members of Congress–many of whom received the Grade of "A" or "A+" from the ANCA Congressional Report Card issued several weeks ago. Among the outstanding Members of Congress endorsed by ANC-PAC are San Francisco area Representative Nancy Pelosi–Glendale area Representative Adam Schiff and from the San Joaquin Valley Representative George Radanovich. A full listing of ANC-PAC endorsed candidates appear in an ad conveniently printed in this week’s Asbarez.
ANC-PAC has also endorsed candidates running for the State Assembly and State Senate. Prominent among them is former ANC activist–Republican Steve Samuelian. He is running for the 29th State Assembly seat in the Fresno area and appears to be the frontrunner in the days leading up to November 5th. Also on the ballot in Central California is area farmer and fellow Republican–Greg Aghazarian. All Armenian-Americans are urged to support these two fine candidates.
In the Los Angeles area–the ANC-PAC urges all voters to reject efforts to split apart Los Angeles. ANC-PAC officials urge individuals to vote no against Measure F (Valley Secession) and individuals to vote no against Measure H (Hollywood Secession). The ANC is working with Mayor Hahn and a number of responsible City Council members to keep Los Angeles United.
