CALABASAS, Ca. – While attending an after party for the Marquee Dayclub Season Event in Las Vegas this week, Kourtney Kardashian announced she will run for the office of mayor in Calabasas in 2016 in hopes of ousting current mayor Aubrey James.
In her first public comments since the party, Kardashian told Us Weekly she had been out to dinner with her mom when she overheard James at a nearby table. “We were eating at The Canyon Bistro and he was at a table behind us with his wife I guess, and I heard his voice and I just thought, ‘You are so annoying. I could literally slap the sh*t out of you and feel so much better.'”
It was then, Ms. Kardashian says, that she decided to run for office to fix the city’s “frumpy image Mayor James has created.” She added, “I feel that if I’m going through something, I’m sure someone else is, too. I try to be as honest with myself and others as I can be and I think a mayor should do the same.”
According to family and friends, Ms. Kardashian’s first duty as mayor will be to improve the city’s economic conditions. Kim Kardashian, Kourtney’s younger sister, told TMZ that “Kourtney feels very passionate about the state of The Commons,” referring to The Commons at Calabasas, an upscale retail and entertainment complex in the city. “Right now its like something you’d see in San Francisco. It’s appalling.”
If elected, Kourtney Kardashian has pledged $1 million of her own money to assist in improving and expanding The Commons at Calabasas. Included in the expansion is a plan to remove the existing fountains and replace them with fountains similar to those at Bellagio Las Vegas. Ms. Kardashian said, “I’m proof that, even after having a baby, you can look better and sexier than ever! And as mayor, I’ll make Calabasas sexier than ever!”
