    Election turnout hits a new low
    The voter turnout in Burbank’s primary election on Tuesday dropped by 6% from what had already been a low 20.4% participation rate two years ago, which political observers attributed to apathy and a lack of hot-button issues. Just 8,106 ballots...
  • Disney, Time-Warner pony up against Prop. 24

    The Walt Disney Co. and the parent of Warner Bros. have each given more than $1 million toward the effort to defeat an initiative on the Nov. 2 ballot that would restore an estimated $1.3 billion in business taxes to the state rolls, records show....
  • Candidates hit the hillsides

    Candidates hit the hillsides
    Of the 10 precincts with the highest voter turnout in Burbank’s primary election, eight were from the hillside area, and the two City Council candidates remaining on the April 12 ballot have taken notice of that fact. Voter participation in the...
  • Schiff's constituents benefit from vote

    Thomas Walls claims that no one in Rep. Adam Schiff's district benefits from the Congressman's vote to increase the federal debt limit (“No more support for Schiff,” Aug. 5). Well, I am in his district and I disagree with Walls. By voting...
