When I was first elected to serve as Glendale’s City Clerk in 2005, I promised to ensure that every citizen has access to City Hall and instill a culture that is open, fair and helps us better understand how our government and our elections work.
Since then I have kept my promise to you by: introducing new technology that enables you to view city council and other organizational meetings from the comfort of your home computer; creating a designated elections website (GlendaleVotes.org) to make accessing information about our municipal elections easier and simpler; starting a Student Ambassador program for high school students; giving over 50 lectures to high school and college students about government and civics; digitizing the public records request system to allow for online requests; and raising voter participation in municipal elections in every one of the last 3 elections since 2005.
During the last 8 years our city - like many others - has faced its fair share of challenges. Recovering from this great recession has taken a toll on many businesses, neighborhoods, as well as our schools and families. But with a commitment to always doing more with less, we have been able to avoid any disruption of services. We are working to use more technology to save you money and time so you can find the information that you need, when you need it.
