GLENDALE–The Board of Directors and staff of the 25,000 in 2000 Voter Registration Project announced this week a $5,000 contribution to its operations by the re-election campaign of Congressman James Rogan.
The generous donation to the voter registration campaign is the first of its kind.
The donation from the re-election campaign for Congressman Rogan–who is seeking a third term from California’s 27th Congressional District representing the largest Armenian-American constituency in the United States–came as the 25,000 in 2000 Voter Registration Project enters the most crucial phase of its operation–headed toward the February 7–2000 Voter Registration deadline for the March 2000 Primary elections in California.
The Board of Directors and staff of the 25,000 in 2000 Voter Registration Project extend their commendation and appreciation to Congressman Rogan as the first to participate in this effort by the Armenian-American community
"I’m proud to join with the Armenian-American community in its effort to educate and encourage its members in participating in the Armenian political process and having their voices heard in the American political process," explained Congressman Rogan.
The 25,000 in 2000 Voter Registration Project is a consolidated effort by a wide-variety of individuals in the Armenian-American community of Southern California–particularly the cities of Glendale–Burbank–Pasadena and Hollywood to encourage the active participation of the local Armenian-American community in the electoral process.
25,000 in 2000 is a non-partisan–non-affiliated project aimed at encouraging 10,000 new voters to go to polls in the March primaries–as well as another 15,000 new voters to cast a ballot in the November general elections.
