Re: “Private Armenian school wins Glendale suit,” July 25. The article states: “Judge finds that officials acted improperly when they closed Scholars Academic Foundation….”
My involvement with the case was confirming two requirements: they need permits and a conditional-use permit. Other code issues were beyond my control and authority. This case was decided, and I respect that judge’s decision. My administrative appeal case with the city was legally settled, details were reported in the News-Press, and I have no further comments.
I fully disagree with the comment on “incompetence.” I am a well-educated and experienced professional. I possess the necessary intelligence and skills that qualified me as department director of two major departments in other cities: director of zoning/code enforcement in Coral Gables, Fla., and director of building and zoning in Miami. I was hired by the city of Glendale in 1993 as zoning administrator because I was the most qualified and “the best fit” for the position.
