What a disappointment it was to not see Bob Yousefian given a City Council endorsement by this paper. The reasons the Glendale News-Press gave for endorsing candidates Mary Boger and Frank Quintero, are the same reasons I'm supporting Bob Yousefian. Bob has also distinguished himself through service to the community. His involvement on various committees and boards has given him an understanding of the need to recognize multiple viewpoints. His resume of service is truly impressive.

Buck Wargo CITY HALL -- The Glendale City Council is expected to decide in late March or early April on whether to hear an appeal on the El Tovar mansion. On Feb. 8, Board of Zoning Adjustments member Bob Yousefian paid $500 and appealed the Jan. 26 decision of his fellow board members allowing the mansion at 3150 El Tovar Drive to violate city height codes. Yousefian doesn't want any variances to be granted to the owners, Rahim and Ramin Karjoo.

Why did Bob Yousefian put his John Henry on a piece of paper -- the genocide resolution that wasn't issued -- that amounts to nothing? Shame on you Bob, you were the one who said let the Armenians find a spot for a statue. How sad. I would say this statue would mean nothing to the Americans, this is America. People are speaking out without really knowing the real truth and meaning. The old-timers of 50 years ago in the USA are really ashamed of this hole-in-the-wall political act in Glendale.

We believe it's presumptuous to "tell people who to vote for." The editorial board of this newspaper spent many hours interviewing more than 40 candidates for school board, college board, city clerk, city treasurer and City Council. We have also attended various candidate forums, studied the candidates' positions and covered the issues in these elections for months leading up to this election. While we would never attempt to "tell" residents how to vote, we believe our assessments may be useful as you make your decisions.

The Glendale Quilt Guild attracted some 150 women and one brave man to its monthly meeting at the Glendale Central Library on Feb. 10. As part of its lively general meeting, those proud of their latest handiwork were first in line for show and tell. One creative quilt after another was trotted out to oohs and ahhs from the audience. A manly quilt of many colors, backed in denim, was showed off by Mt. Washington resident Daniel Marlos . He plans to enter two of his quilts in the guild’s upcoming show in March.

I get a lot of flak whenever I mention the fact that I used to live somewhere other than Glendale. Whenever I brought it up before City Council, Bob Yousefian and Dave Weaver would get that same look in their eye my wife gets when I bring up an old girlfriend. In spite of all my assurances that some good will come of the tale, it never seems to get the desired response. I’m a slow learner, so I am going to keep after it until I get it right. Maybe our new police chief isn’t quite so jealous.

This is an open letter to Bob and Lady Sue Yousefian. You two are very special people, and we think of you often, and we recall many memorable and very special fun events that we attended, read or watched. Life without Bob on the City Council in Glendale is not the same! He brought life, intelligence, commitment, dedication and hard work to the City Council. The people did not send him (or me!) back to represent them. No problem. We respect the people, and we have no regrets or anger.

A candidate for City Council took on a new role recently, putting on a satirical send-up of the Glendale board at the Luna Playhouse. Aramazd Stephanian, who finished last in a field of 12 during council elections April 7, wrote, starred, produced and directed “The Travel Diaries of a (Former) Council Member.” In the show — which ran last Friday and Saturday — ex-Councilman Bob Yousefian takes a trip around the world with Councilman Dave Weaver. Yousefian, who finished fourth in the vote tally, failed in his reelection bid. Weaver was not up for reelection.

To the victors go the spoils, and in that vein, truth is spoiled right along any claims on how victory was achieved. (“Messages are revealed in voter results,” April 9) Even if we ignore the huge absentee-voter-coaching effort by the Armenian National Committee, the ads from the Glendale Police Officers Assn., and an anti-Bruce Philpott effort by the Glendale News-Press and the Glendale Fire Fighters Assn., something is missing. The News-Press cannot reasonably deduce what the true voter message was from those efforts.

To those who had gone to bed after viewing the early returns Tuesday night, it was a remarkable upset. Around 10:30 p.m., first-time City Council candidate Laura Friedman was in a dead heat for third place with longtime contender Chahe Keuroghelian, while incumbent Ara Najarian sat comfortably in first. By sunrise, Najarian had dropped to a close second, and Friedman emerged as the election’s top vote-getter. Friedman’s victory, though, shouldn’t have come as a shock to anyone who followed the race over the last few weeks.

CITY HALL Police Chief Randy Adams, citing the need for an extended break from nearly 37 years of public service, said he will retire in July. His retirement was announced publicly Wednesday after City Council members were officially notified of his decision Tuesday evening against the backdrop of a citywide election. The announcement comes nearly eight months after Adams, 58, slammed “vicious” and “absolutely false” rumors that he had given notice to city executives in August.
