WATERTOWN – On Saturday July 7, the Armenian Democratic Liberal Party (ADL) District Committee of the Eastern United States and Canada held a regular meeting at its headquarters in Boston in the Baikar Building and reaffirmed its loyalty to the ADL Central Executive based in Armenia and the Supreme Council created through the latter body.
The participants discussed the District Committee’s reports on financial and political activities and took decisions concerning forthcoming political plans. This year the English-language weekly newspaper founded by the Committee, the Armenian Mirror-Spectator, is commemorating the 85th anniversary of its founding on November 2 and 3 in Boston.
The committee members thanked Edmond Y. Azadian for his decades of dedicated labor and wise leadership. They then unanimously elected Kevork Marashlian as his successor as chairman. Azadian will continue to serve as the liaison with the English-language weekly on behalf of the District Committee.
