“Kim For Glendale,” “Kardashian: Hope,” “Glendale Needs A Kardashian,” “Hello Kimmy.” Lookout Glendale, you may be seeing campaign slogans like these around town because Kim Kardashian wants to be your mayor!
In a bonus clip on her sister’s show “Khloé & Lamar,” Kim revealed her political aspirations of being Glendale’s mayor in possibly five years.
But there is a few small hurtles she has to jump before making this a reality. First she has to buy a home in Glendale to confirm residency, which won’t be an issue for the highest earning reality star in 2010.
Then she’ll need to spend some time on the five-person City Council because Glendale doesn’t have a citywide election. Instead they elect a council member for a one-year term as mayor.
Current council members have taken to the idea of a Kardashian mayor with open arms. During an interview with E! News, Glendale City Councilman Rafi Manoukian said, “I would support her. I think she would make an excellent mayor.”
Although her political ambitions would start five years from now and a Kardashian as mayor of Glendale may never happen, for now we can dream and ponder what a city would be like if it was run by Kim.
