To better acquaint voters with the candidates in the April 3 Glendale City Council race, the Crescenta Valley Sun presented all candidates with six identical questions touching on issues pertinent to the foothill area specifically and the Glendale area generally. We will run all of the answers we receive prior to the election day. Today we spotlight two of the eight candidates and their responses.Greg Krikorian

What is your reaction to the view protection/privacy issues now being debated by the council?
As a Glendale homeowner and past board of the Northwest homeowner's association, I want to go on record in supporting the passing of a view protection ordinance by the city council.
For too long, the residents of Glendale have had to endure the overdevelopment of residential lots throughout the city. This overbuilding has had an adverse impact on not only the properties that abut these lots, but on the neighborhoods as a whole. The time has come for the city council to take a stand and protect the neighborhoods of Glendale by ensuring that any further development or additions to residential properties are done in such a way as to not adversely impact the neighborhoods they occupy. Property rights not only extend to individual property owners, but to those whose property is next to another's.
