Local ANCA Chapters Endorse Steve Zimmer for LAUSD School Board

Los Angeles – The Hollywood and San Fernando Valley West (SFVW) chapters of the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) have endorsed school board candidate Steve Zimmer in his reelection bid for the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) Board of Education.

“Steve is not only a school board member but a part of the community he represents on the Board of Education,” said ANCA-Hollywood executive board member Tereza Yerimyan. “He was a counselor at Marshall High School, my alma mater, and it’s easy to see when speaking with him that he cares deeply about the students, the schools, and the community as a whole.”

“We look forward to continuing our strong relationship with Steve and we expect that he will have a long and productive tenure as a member of the LAUSD Board of Education,” said ANCA-SFVW Chair Nareg Kitsinian.

The local chapters cited Zimmer’s steadfast support of issues important to the Armenian-American community and his overall concern for the betterment of the LAUSD in providing the best education possible for all community members in making their decision.

The election is on Tuesday, March 5, 2013.
