Kim Kardashian is for real considering making a run for the Mayor of Glendale, Calif., in five years. The reality TV star made the big reveal about her political aspiration in a clip from Khloé & Lamar, a reality show starring her sister Khloe Kardashian and her basketball husband Lamar Odom.
I decided I'm going to run for the mayor of Glendale, Kardashian said, telling sister Khloé that she has to have full residency in Glendale. So I am trying to.
For real, she said. Noelle's going to head my campaign, but it's going to be in like five years for Glendale.
It seems Kim Kardashian also planned just how she is going to capture the mayoral position.
So I have to buy a house there, she said. You have to have residency there. So, Noelle and I are looking into all the requirements and she is going to help me with my campaign because it's like an Armenian town. But I need to wait like five years.
Glendale city spokesman Tom Lorenz told the Los Angeles Times that is aware of the video and that Kardashian or anyone for that matter doesn't have to run for mayor in the city of Glendale.
It is not an elected position in the city, Lorenz said. The elected positions are five City Council people, a city clerk and treasurer.
City Clerk Ardashes Kassakhian said that a candidate must be a registered voter in Glendale and living in the city 90 days before the election. Additionally, anyone seeking elected office must collect 100 endorsement signatures, Kassahian told the Times.
Glendale City Councilman Rafi Manoukian told E! News that he would support Kim Kardashian when she seeks the position.
I think she would make an excellent mayor, he said.
Former Glendale mayor Ara Najarian told E! News that the idea of the reality star running or mayor is great.
I have offered her the position of honorary chief of staff to my office to help her get acquainted to Glendale, he said.
