NORTH GLENDALE — Glendale City Council candidates were put on the hot seat Thursday during an election forum in which they were forced to address issues ranging from personal bankruptcy filings to the role of religion in politics.
Former City Councilman Rafi Manoukian, self-described “city watchdog” Mike Mohill, perennial candidate Chahe Keuroghelian and City Hall newcomer Garen Mailyan are challenging incumbents Dave Weaver and John Drayman for two seats in the April 5 election.
The scrutiny came during a forum at the Brand Library hosted by the Northwest Glendale Homeowners Assn. and moderated by former News-Press columnist Will Rogers, who peppered the candidates with a variety of questions written by the leadership of the Northwest Glendale Homeowners Assn. and moderator Will Rogers.
