You should have received your election ballots in the mail this week…make sure you VOTE and mail them back in or drop them off at a designated drop off locations….and there are MANY! Mailing it in is FREE…so, there’s no excuse not to vote.
Be sure to sign your name under the flap of the Identification/Return envelope. Your ballot MUST BE POSTMARKED BY TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 28TH, 2017, AND RECEIVED BY 12:00PM ON FRIDAY, MARCH 3, TO BE COUNTED.
All of the information you’ll need, including what to do with a spoiled ballot, can be found inside the voter’s information guide on pages E-2, E-3 and E-4.
For city council members, 3 seats are available and you can vote for NO MORE THAN 3 candidates.
For City Clerk, vote for no more than ONE (And, there’s only actually one candidate…so, Congratulations Zizette!)
For City Treasurer, vote for no more than ONE (Congrats Debbie Kukta, it’s all yours!)
For Burbank USD Board Members, vote for NO MORE THAN 2 candidates.
I think the hot topics in the City of Burbank right now are housing and development (overbuilding to be exact), crime in our neighborhoods and homelessness. Actually, this list could be quite long, and will differ for each of us. So….do your research and vote to fill those seats with candidates you know will work hard for you!
Take a look at our City Council Candidates and their video statements. I’m going in the order they are on the ballot:
Retired Property Manager
Jess A. Talamantes
Council member/Retired Firefighter
Gregory R. Sousa
Studio Transportation Driver
Robert “Bob” Frutos
Small Business Owner
Social Media Manager
Do your research and make great choices for our city!!!
