Running For The 28th Congressional District Of California, USA.


Los Angeles, CA – Entrepreneur and long-time small business consultant Johnny J. Nalbandian is running for The 28th Congressional District Of California, USA as a Conservative Republican.

Nalbandian, a very Patriotic American of Armenian decent, was born in New Jersey, USA one of the original 13 Colonies and grew up in Southern California. Johnny fell in love with American politics at the age of five when he watched the Kennedy-Nixon debates on live black & white television. He looked up to both candidates with great enthusiasm.

Known as “Johnny” to his colleagues, Nalbandian founded a successful California-based seafood distribution and processing company at the age of 19. His company soon became a leader in the seafood industry not only by instrumentally moving restaurant white table cloth quality seafood into supermarkets but also running pilot programs for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) HACCP program. At its peak, the company had $60 million in sales and was known as “The Tiffany’s of the Seafood Industry.”

Nalbandian has become a successful and highly demanded business consultant and marketer. For the past 15 years, Johnny has advised businesses of all industries and sizes regarding expansion, trade, and investment opportunities. His favorite is food product development for meal solutions or as they call it in the Seafood Industry, “Value Added Products.”

Johnny, a very proud Patriot, has been a food industry professional for over five decades. He was labeled as the “Seafood Marketing Genius” by Sandy Gooch, pioneer of the Natural Food Movement and mentor to the Whole Foods Family. He was offered the position of Fish & Game Commissioner by California 1982 Governor-Elect George Deukmejian’s office.

In the past, Johnny, also known as Mr. Seafood, has had guest appearances, speaking engagements and seminars where he appeared as industry spokesman on CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX TV News and KFI radio.  Also, for over four years he appeared on the Jackie Olden Radio Talk Show and The Larry Lipson Restaurant Show on KGIL on a weekly basis.

In later years, he was appointed as “Trade Specialist” to former California Governor Schwarzenegger’s CATO promoting the State of California to the sixteen former Soviet States.

Additionally, as a well-known authority and national representative of the Seafood Industry, Mr. Seafood helped raise thousands for other charity functions such as hosting benefits for Jerry’s Kids, Autism International Foundation, LA Dodger’s – Think Cure Cancer Foundation, Las Vegas Chef’s Project Chef and Kids and Children’s Nature Institute just to name a few.

When Donald J. Trump announced his candidacy, Johnny said, “Wow this is 1980 all over again for me” when he campaigned representing the Seafood Industry and the American- Armenian Community for the Great President Ronald Reagan. He also said, “I smell a Reagan Style victory coming again during his campaigning for President Donald J. Trump and I am thrilled to be on the Trump Train to “Make America Great Again.”

Johnny missed the America and California he grew up in, especially after he watched the Democratic Party destroy this once Golden State. He decided it was time to move out all the career politicians and load up both Sacramento and Washington DC with the everyday small business owners that live in the ugly corrupted bubble. Johnny has stated, “It is disheartening to see so many Americans hate our Great Nation” and this among many other reasons is why he is running for Congress. Why the 28th District?

#1- He grew up in the Hollywood and Los Feliz area.

#2- He loves our President’s Agenda and if there is a state that would benefit from President Trump’s platform it would be California.

#3- Democrats like Brad Sherman (30th), Maxine Waters (43rd) and finally Adam Schiff (28th) have destroyed this once a fabulous place to live.

#4 – Adam Schiff is a career politician; Johnny is a career businessperson just like our President. Johnny is a next door neighbor you would enjoy being around. Time to send Adam packing.

#5 – Throughout the state, the Democrats and progressive socialist politicians have and continue to jeopardize the United States Constitution along with our liberties and send businesses running away from California.

Time to Jump on The JOHNNY JET of PATRIOTISM!!!

Help Us Make The 28th District Awesome Again!
