Kim Kardashian is planning to run for the mayor of Glendale, California around five years from now "because it's, like, Armenian town," the TV personality informally declared in a video clip.

A rep for Kardashian didn't confirm her political aspiration but said Kardashian- who is of Armenian descent- has always looked for ways to support the Armenian community.

Glendale is known among other things, for having the largest Armenian population in the United states.

"Kim has always looked for opportunities to grow and also do what she can to help and support the Armenian community," her representative told Us Weekly.

"She's learning more about ways in which she can help to do her part to make a difference in the community."

Local political experts noted that mayor of Glendale is not actually a position someone can run for. The way the city is organized is that all elected city council members take turns serving as mayor.

Kardashian unveiled her plan in a video clip from the reality show "Khloe and Lamar" posted this week. (Watch the Video Below)

"I decided I'm going to run for the mayor of Glendale...but its going to be like in five years," Kardashian said.

"So I have to buy a house there, you need to have residency there," she added while assuring she already has someone to help her with the political campaign.

If her intentions are true, this wouldn't be the first time Kardashian gets involved in politics.

In 2011, she called out to President Obama to recognize the Armenian Genocide in a post on her blog.

She also sought support from her millions of fans.

"It's time to recognize the Armenian Genocide," she tweeted at the time.

In 2010 she called on Speaker Nancy Pelosi to schedule a vote on the Armenian Genocide resolution, according to the Armenian National Committee of America-West Region.

"It's time for America to speak openly and honestly about this horrible crime against humanity, and the only way this will happen is if WE speak up first," Kardashian wrote to Pelosi.
