Patch received the following statement from the Filipino American Business Association of Glendale:
The Filipino American Business Association of Glendale (FABAG) has endorsed Greg Krikorian, candidate for California State Assembly, 43rd District.
“Our Filipino American community and Greg have been good friends for many years,” explained Ruby De Vera, president of FABAG. “We’ve supported him through his school board campaigns since 2001 and believe in what he can do to improve our community. What the Assembly needs is a dynamic man like him who is committed to serving our needs.”
“I’m honored and delighted to have the support of the Filipino American community,” said Krikorian. “We’re reaching across communities to build a stronger California with representation that is in touch with all nationalities. I look forward to helping our state get back to work and investing in our children’s future. Over the past two years we have seen over $700 Million in cuts to education and over-regulation that is driving our businesses out of state.”
The Filipino American Business Association of Glendale (FABAG) is a non-profit group of business and professional men and women that has provided exemplary business leadership, cultural awareness, and community services for 21 years.
“Greg is a true example of a community leader, who selflessly gives to our community and is the right person we truly need in Sacramento. His background as a small business owner and serving on the Board of Education is a perfect balance that we need! Our present state legislators are driving business out of our state and crippling our public schools with unfunded mandates” stated Adel Luzuriaga.
Krikorian added that during his tenure on the School Board “we were able to weather the economic crisis and keep cuts as far away from the classroom as possible through sound fiscal management and with the help of the community and our business partners. I plan on bringing the same common sense and bi-partisan solutions to Sacramento. Our campaign continues to build momentum and we are grateful for the confidence in us from the FABAG to represent the new 43rd Assembly district.”
The newly-redrawn 43rd Assembly district serves Burbank, Glendale, La Crescenta, Montrose, La Canada, Atwater Village, Los Feliz, East Hollywood, Little Armenia and Griffith Park. The Primary is June 5 and the General Election is November 6, 2012. Learn more about Greg at www.KRIKORIAN2012.com.
