  • Mailbag: Give Gordon a shot at the top spot

    We are in 100% agreement with the May 8 editorial "Give Gordon a chance." It is undeniably wrong that Councilman David Gordon's fellow council members should be allowed to treat the council office as a childish popularity game and continually vote to deny...
  • Ballots sent with error

    Los Angeles County election officials on Tuesday acknowledged sending vote-by-mail guides to as many as 1,100 Democrats that erroneously listed candidates for the 43rd Assembly District in the same space as votes for or against a controversial parcel tax....

    Representatives for Republican Assembly candidate Sunder Ramani are arguing that his opponent is dodging opportunities to participate in debates ahead of the June 8 runoff election to represent Glendale, Burbank and parts of Los Angeles. Ramani...
  • An eventful term for senator

    For nearly all of state Sen. Carol Liu's term in office, she has had to deliver bad news to officials in Glendale and Burbank. Trouble began shortly after Liu's election in 2008, when the national economy went south. California state officials worked...
  • Candidates prepare for vote

    After months of campaigning and a contentious primary election, Democrat Mike Gatto and Republican Sunder Ramani will face off in a special election Tuesday for the 43rd Assembly District. The winner will serve the district, which represents Glendale,...

    Youthful exuberance
    At 21, Steven Ferguson has had his share of firsts: youngest commissioner in the city's 99-year history, youngest City Council candidate to garner 1,000 votes, and now, youngest chairman of the Park, Recreation and Community Services Board. Still, the...
  • A candidate stops by

    This afternoon we were visited by City Council candidate Emily Gabel-Luddy. I hadn't really decided who to vote for next month because both candidates offer positive ideas, but I was very impressed with Gabel-Luddy's grasp of the budget problems facing...
  • City Council candidate Gary Bric

    The lone incumbent in the Burbank City Council election, Gary Bric spent four years on the Traffic and Transportation Commission before he was elected to the council in 2007. The 50-year Burbank resident served as mayor from May 2009 until the following...
  • Apathy, lack of candidate forums contribute to low election interest

    With the mail-in ballots for the April 12 general election out, the voter response could be even lower than the 14.3% who participated in the primary. The tepid response, some politicos say, can probably be attributed to the quiet Burbank campaign...
  • City Council candidate Emily Gabel-Luddy

    A 30-year veteran of the public sector, Emily Gabel-Luddy began her service to Burbank a decade ago when she was appointed to the Planning Board. She brought her experience of working for the Los Angeles Department of Planning at all levels, including...

    Planning commissioners this week recommended that the city extend major development agreements with Warner Bros. by another 15 years, giving the studio more time to grow. The development agreements with the city were approved in 1995 and allowed for 20...
