Gregory George Aghazarian (born September 10, 1964) is an American lawyer and politician from California. He is a Republican and former California State Assemblyman who represented the 26th district from 2002 until 2008. Prior to his election, Aghazarian was a local businessman and attorney, working for his family's business, Aghazarian's of Stockton, which has been in Stockton for more than three decades. He was also an elected member of the Lincoln Unified School District Board of Trustees from 1998 to 2002, serving as president of the board for the 2001-02 year. Assemblyman Aghazarian briefly considered running against freshman Democratic Congressman Jerry McNerney in 2008; however, Aghazarian instead decided to pursue a run for the State Senate in the 5th district, which is one of the few competitive Senate seats in California. He was defeated by Assemblywoman Lois Wolk. One of the laws introduced by Assembly Member Aghazarian was permitting transport agencies to also obtain Disabled access license plates (AB 1910, Ch 203, Sections 5007 and 22511.56 of the California Vehicle Code). This new law which was "sponsored" (or "suggested") by Manteca CAPS' Executive Director Emmanuel Serriere went into effect on January 1, 2007. It was explained at length in his regular bulletin The Aghazarian Alert. In 2009 he was appointed to the California Workers' Compensation Appeals Board by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and served on the board until 2010.
