Councilman to appear on show
Councilman Ara Najarian is scheduled to appear live on â€œThe Larry Zarian Showâ€ Thursday to discuss the city's current fiscal situation and the outlook for next year.
Najarian, who is also a member of the board of directors for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and Metrolink, will also likely discuss how Glendale stands to benefit from key regional transit issues.
He came out publicly against Measure R, a $40-billion traffic congestion relief ballot measure that voters passed in November.
MTA is expected to use the money to initiate new transportation projects, while accelerating those already in the pipeline.
As a board member for two major regional transportation agencies, Najarian would be positioned to direct some of those dollars to Glendale projects.
Najarian is also up for reelection in April.
Zarian's show airs at 7 p.m. Thursday on Channel 280. The live call-in number is (818) 547-3668.
