Glendale Unified School District trustee Greg Krikorian officially kicked off his campaign to win a seat on the City Council on Wednesday at Oakmont Country Club.
Krikorian, 43, said six years on the school board has equipped him with the experience to make policy decisions that are good for a whole community, rather than segments of it.
He pointed to recent issues, such as concerns over development in the Mountain Oaks area and the Americana at Brand, that have divided the community.
The city needs to better deal with the city's traffic congestion, and the council must hold firm on city laws such as the hillside ordinance while respecting the rights of property owners, he said.
Krikorian, who is director of business development for Business Life and Senior Living magazines, said the city must also address ways to push down soaring office space vacancy rates in Glendale.
