STATEMENT OF: WILLIAM M PAPARIAN
CANDIDATE FOR SUPERVISOR, 5th DISTRICT
Occupation: Councilmember, City of Pasadena
County government is no longer working for us. It's time for a change. Councilmember Paparian will provide better representation and leadership because he is committed to enhancing governmental accountability. He will make sure everyone will have a fair and equal opportunity to participate in the County government process.
Born in Los Angeles, Paparian has a successful law practice in Pasadena where he lives with his wife and three sons. Afrter serving his country in the U.S. Marine Corps, Paparian was honorably discharged in 1973, and went to law school on the G.I. Bill.
After Paparian unseated a three-term incumbent by a 2-1 margin, he brought positive changes into City Hall. He led the move to make government more responsive to residents' needs, and fought hard to increase the effectiveness, openness, and accountability of local government.
Paparian deserves our vote for County Supervisor. He will be an independent and effective representative for all of us. You can count on him to fight for the beliefs and values we all share. And he has the strength, skill, and experience to win those fights.
We need Paparian as our County Supervisor. We need someone who will fight for us, for a change.
