Armenian Assembly of America Radio Hour host, Mihran Toumajan, was pleased to interview Mr. Adrin Nazarian (D – 46).
During the interview, Assemblymember Nazarian shed light on his recent success in securing $11 million in state funding for three Armenian educational institutions in the greater Los Angeles area, including for the first Tumo Center to be built in the United States (specifically in the San Fernando Valley), the USC Institute of Armenian Studies, and Glendale-based Lark Musical Society. The Assemblymember also reflected on pressing issues addressed by the State Assembly’s Aging and Long-Term Care Committee, which he chairs, in addition to his work in garnering passage of legislation expanding funding for the largest child savings account program in the country, the California Kids Investment and Development Savings (CalKIDS) program that Assemblymember Nazarian created in 2019.
