The Jewel City may finally get some glitz.
Kim Kardashian, famous for whatever it is she does, evidently has her eyes set on the top political post in my hometown, Glendale. Five years from now, she hopes to run for mayor.
Alas, it's impossible for Kardashian to run for mayor of Glendale -- because Glendale doesn't elect a mayor. Its five council members, all of whom serve at-large, each year select one of their colleagues to serve in the city’s top post. So endearing herself to Glendale voters presents only the first hurdle to anyone who hopes to launch her political career in the city.
But Kardashian shouldn't let that discourage her, if she can set her sights a little lower and cut her political teeth as a council member for a few years. Glendale has a city manager who really runs the show, so how much damage could Kardashian do?
