This reader chuckled when reading your article titled, “Krikorian goes after Gatto's Assembly seat” on March 11, in which Glendale Unified school board member Greg Krikorian described himself as a moderate who wanted to tackle pension reform, among other issues.

Krikorian has been anything but a moderate on the school board, often finding himself in the middle of controversy because of views that this reader finds extreme. But the pension issue really elicited the biggest laughs.

In Krikorian's 11 years in office, he's sat idly by while pension costs soared and schools deteriorated. The idea of a promotion would be even more hilarious, were Krikorian's ambition not so tragic.
