Kim Kardashian may not be Kanye West’s Beyoncé , but she does have her sights set on being Glendale, California’s next mayor.
In a clip from her sister Khloé’s show “Khloé & Lamar,” she shared her political aspirations with her baby sister. “I decided … I’m gonna run for the mayor of Glendale. You have to have full residency in Glendale, so Noelle’s going to head my campaign, but it’s going to be five years for Glendale. So I have to buy a house there,” she said in a clip posted on Aceshowbiz.com. “You have to have residency, so Noelle and I are looking into all the requirements. It’s [an] Armenian town. But I need to wait like five years.”
While some people are scratching their heads at the thought of her calling the shots for the Cali town, it seems that those who currently live and work there are not against the idea. “I would support her. I think she would make an excellent mayor,” city councilman Rafi Manoukian told E! News. And he’s not the only one.
City councilman and former mayor Ara Najarian offered to make the reality starlet “honorary chief of staff to my office to help her get acquainted to Glendale,” adding that he believes that her dream to run for political office is a “great idea.”
Najarian noted that he knows that Kardashian is busy, but she can start small as she readies for her office run. “I know Kim is busy all over the world and all that, but if she’s able to come in a few days a week or a few days a month to see how the city works and see all the great things we do,” he explained, “if she wants to learn how Glendale runs, this is really the best way to do it.”
Her run for office certainly wouldn’t be the first time she’s attempted to do something outside her comfort zone of posing on step-and-repeats in bandage dresses, selling diet programs and designing clothes. Last year, she tried a short-lived career as a pop star with her track “Jam (Turn It Up).” She even shot a Hype Williams-directed video for it, but, alas, it never saw the light of day.
