    The city has received roughly 4,000 ballots for the April 9 election since they were mailed out about two weeks ago, but candidates are still in campaign mode, continuing to expand their war chests in the final weeks before the election, recent filings...
  • Candidates and year-round swimming

    I've written to the Leader previously on year-round swimming at the public pools and it would be interesting to know about the City Council candidates’ positions on this issue. However, there is a larger issue that has a greater impact on...
  • Leader Editorial: Election could change everything

    Although more voters participated in Burbank's primary election this week than turned out in 2011, it still drew yawns from most. Some of those who sat back and let the others decide the outcome may wish now that they had been paying more attention and...
  • Four vie for two remaining seats on city council

    It’s crunch time for the four City Council hopefuls, who have less than a month to knock on as many doors and raise as much money for their campaigns as possible before ballots are mailed out for the April 9 general election. The stakes were raised...
  • How Burbank City Council candidates would balance the budget

    Burbank election candidates continued to beef up their campaign coffers during the last reporting period, which spanned through Feb. 9, just as ballots for Tuesday's primary began to arrive in Burbank homes. Candidate Bob Frutos continued to lead...
  • PAC moves to unseat City Council incumbent Jess Talamantes

    A political action committee sponsored by a labor union that represents about 800 retail workers in Burbank has raised $20,000 in an effort to unseat City Council incumbent Jess Talamantes, with a spokesman for the group citing a “pattern of not...
  • PACs should stay out of local elections

    I find it highly offensive and suspect that a political action committee sponsored by a labor union is going to spend $20,000 to influence voting for the Burbank City Council (“Group moves to unseat council member,” Feb. 20). I have already...
  • Editorial: We have reached an S in the road

    Burbank voters are weighing two distinctly different proposals this election season that carry the same name, “Measure S.” How could such a confusing turn of events come about? We're told it's by accident. At about the same time Burbank...
  • To be clear, David Nos is not 'No on S'

    To all Burbank voters: I am David Nos and my last name is not, and I repeat, is not a campaign against the safe school initiative Measure S. In fact, I wholeheartedly support Measure S. I have a Measure S sign along with my own “Just Say Nos”...
  • Burbank to press state on law barring non-officials from closed session meetings

    Burbank plans to press state officials on laws that prevent newly elected candidates from attending City Council closed sessions in the lead-up to them taking office, arguing the ban forces a steep learning curve that can hinder city business. The City...
