Adrin Nazarian Leads in Fundraising Once Again

SAN FERNANDO VALLEY – For the second straight reporting period, Adrin Nazarian has outraised all of his opponents in the race for the 46th Assembly District. Adrin’s campaign has now raised over $220,000, while still reporting more than 85% of those contributions as cash-on-hand according to recent March state filings.

Demonstrating his deep roots within the district, more than 55 % of his contributions have been from Valley-based individuals and small businesses.

“Adrin not only has the widest donor base in the San Fernando Valley of any candidate in this race, but more importantly, he knows how to spend his money wisely,” says consultant Eric Hacopian. “While multiple candidates in this race have already blown through more than half of their money, Adrin has only spent 15% of the contributions he’s received, saving it for when it really counts, the last two months before Election Day.”

The outpouring of financial support Adrin has received from Valley voters, combined with the significant endorsements he has received from Los Angeles City Firefighters, the Valley Industry & Commerce Association, and the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, gives Adrin a clear edge in the race to represent the 46th Assembly District.

Adrin currently serves as chief-of-staff to L.A. City Councilmember Paul Krekorian. He grew up in the San Fernando Valley, attending high school there before receiving his degree in Economics from UCLA in 1996. He has been a CORO Fellowship in Public Affairs program participant, a board member of the East Valley YMCA and YWCA, and a founding member of the Generation Next Mentorship program.

The newly drawn 46th Assembly District includes the Los Angeles neighborhoods of North Hollywood, Toluca Lake, Studio City, Sherman Oaks, Valley Village, Valley Glen, Van Nuys, Panorama City, North Hills, Lake Balboa and the Hollywood Hills. The primary is June 5, 2012.
