Kim Kardashian Eyes Run for Mayor in California City
(LOS ANGELES) -- Mayor Kim Kardashian has a nice ring to it, doesn't it? The reality TV star wants to become mayor of Glendale, Calif., a suburb of Los Angeles.
In a bonus clip of Sunday's episode of the E! series Khloe & Lamar posted online, Kim tells her sister Khloe that she will run for mayor of Glendale in five years. She says she's enlisted a friend's help in launching a campaign, and that she has to "buy a house there, you have to have residency there."
Kim, who has an Armenian background, also notes that the city has a sizable Armenian-American population.
Glendale city officials clarify that the mayor of the city is not elected, but rather is selected "by a nomination and subsequent majority vote of his/her colleagues during the annual reorganization meeting of the city council, which takes place on an annual basis during the month of April."
If Kim is serious about becoming mayor of Glendale, she must establish residency and become a registered voter there. Glendale officials say the city clerk's office "has not received any inquiries from any potential candidates regarding the 2017 Glendale municipal elections."
