"It's like, Armenia Town," said Kim Kardashian about Glendale, a city that borders Los Angeles. "I decided I'm gonna run for the mayor of Glendale."
Kardashian, 31, is California's most famous Armenian-American next to megastar Cher (Cherilyn Sarkisian) and former California Governor George Deukmejian.
The prospective political candidate must first become a resident to run for office in Glendale, which has a city council/city manager government.
"Noelle and I are, like, looking into all the requirements," Kardashian continued. "She's going to help me with my campaign."
The mayor is not a publicly-elected position but a job that rotates yearly among members of the Glendale City Council. Kim Kardashian must run for the council, then be selected as Mayor by her fellow council members for a one-year term.
Former Glendale mayor and current council member Ara Najarian has offered Kardashian a political position as Chief of Staff, which the native California girl is considering quite seriously.
Glendale realtor Artin Sarkissian is locating residential real estate in Glendale for Kardashian, and the city's Armenian-American leaders are arranging a meeting with the popular reality TV superstar.
All that is required for a candidate to seek a council seat is to be a resident and registered voter in Glendale 90 days prior to the election, and to collect signatures from 100 registered voters in Glendale.
Reportedly, mom Kris Jenner is mulling over the idea of being daughter Kim's political campaign manager.
Hollywood personalities Ronald Reagan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Martin Sheen, Sonny Bono, Clint Eastwood and Geena Davis each entered political offices in California, so why not Kim Kardashian?
Indeed, California is still a place where anything is possible for anyone --- especially a successful businesswoman with millions of followers.
