NOR OR, LOS ANGELES — Stella Ma-loyan, a leading nonprofit executive, announced her candidacy for the Los Angeles City Council’s 12th District. With a strong record of uniting business, labor, community organizations, and the entertainment industry, Maloyan vowed to use her relationships and experience to fight for the Valley’s fair share of city services.

“I have seen the power of coalitions to change our city for the better, and I know what it takes to bring everyone to the table,” said Maloyan. “Leadership is ultimately about getting things done to serve the greater public interest. Throughout my career, I’ve worked to put politics aside and get things done for our communities.”

Maloyan, who has lived in the district for 40 years, moved to the Northwest Valley when she was just 15 years old seeking freedom and safety from the Iranian Revolution. She received various degrees from California State University, Northridge. She raised her family in Porter Ranch, became an active parent with her children’s schools, and as a community volunteer led the fundraising effort for local kids to have a new soccer field.

Maloyan’s early activism drove her to bring improvements on a larger scale to the community and create more opportunities for working people to reach the middle class. As an executive with the Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy (LAANE) for nearly two decades, she has empowered people to hold City Hall accountable, build affordable housing, clean our air and water, increase funding for our schools and create good-paying jobs that have helped strengthen our communities.

“This country gave my family and many friends the opportunity to rebuild our lives,” stated Maloyan, who has long been active in and draws strength from the Armenian community. “I consider it my privilege and responsibility to give others that same opportunity, and I have dedicated my career to that ideal.”

Maloyan has raised millions of dollars during her tenure at LAANE, and as a volunteer has played a major role in building support for international and local humanitarian organizations. She is a strong believer in gender equity, which led her to create Women for a New Los Angeles, the largest gathering of women leaders in California. In 2015, she was appointed by Mayor Eric Garcetti to serve as a Commissioner on the Los Angeles Tourism and Convention Board. She also worked to increase civic participation through her board service with the Getty House Foundation.
