Los Angeles, CA – Johnny J. Nalbandian, a very patriotic American of Armenian descent who was born in New Jersey, USA, and grew up in and lives in California’s 30th Congressional District is running for United States Congress.Johnny fell in love with American politics at the age of five when he watched the Kennedy-Nixon debates on live black & white television. He looked up to both candidates with great enthusiasm.
Known as “Johnny” to his colleagues, Nalbandian founded a successful California-based seafood distribution and processing company at the age of 19. His company soon became a leader in the seafood industry not only by instrumentally moving premium restaurant-quality seafood into supermarkets but also running pilot programs for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) HACCP program. At its peak, the company had $60 million in sales and was known as “The Tiffany’s of the Seafood Industry”.
Nalbandian, who was labeled as the “Seafood Marketing Genius” by Sandy Gooch, pioneer of the Natural Food Movement and mentor to the Whole Foods Family, has become a successful and highly demanded food industry professional. He was offered the position of Fish & Game Commissioner by California 1982 Governor-Elect George Deukmejian’s office. For the past two decades, Johnny has advised businesses of all industries and sizes regarding expansion, trade, and investment opportunities.
Also known as Mr. Seafood, Johnny has had guest appearances, speaking engagements and seminars where he appeared as industry spokesman on CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX TV News and KFI radio. Also, for over four years he appeared on the Jackie Olden Radio Talk Show and The Larry Lipson Restaurant Show on KGIL. Additionally, as a well-known authority and national representative of the Seafood Industry, Johnny helped raise thousands for other charity functions such as hosting benefits for Jerry’s Kids, Autism International Foundation, LA Dodger’s – Think Cure Cancer Foundation, Las Vegas Chef’s Project Chef and Kids and Children’s Nature Institute just to name a few.
Johnny missed the California he grew up in, especially after he watched the radical Democratic Party destroy this once-Golden State, essentially turning it into a one-party system. His goal is to bring back real conservatism to LA County. He strongly believes that he can bring back business growth and prosperity to the 30th congressional district, where he currently lives, and enrich our community and families. It is vital to prevent further deterioration which has plagued many democrat-run cities nationwide. Johnny and his staff have created two platforms to address the important changes needed on both a local and national level: the “Contract with our Community” and “Platform of Liberty”.
The current state of SoCal communities is not sustainable nor acceptable. It is Johnny’s major goal to always protect and support parents as well as our future generations. Using his skills as a businessman, he will make the 30th a flagship district in achievement and success.
