The Republican candidate in the 43rd Assembly District who has touted himself as a “business conservative” extinguished more than $49,000 in credit card debt after he and his wife emerged from Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection, court records show.
Candidate Greg Krikorian's wife, Christine, filed for bankruptcy in March 2011. He was added to the case as a co-debtor a month later, after the bankruptcy court noted that Christine had failed to list him in her filing as her husband and as a source of income.
In a welcome message on his campaign website,
Krikorian2012.com, Greg Krikorian touts his fiscal responsibility as a member of the Glendale Unified School District Board of Education, saying he can bring the same ethos to Sacramento.
“The state budget is in shambles,” the statement reads. “We spend far in excess of what we take in, while cutting funding for public education, public safety, and social programs for our most vulnerable citizens.”
