Candidate for State Senate District 25 Phlunte Riddle on Mother's Day

Mother’s Day: Phlunte Riddle candidate for State Senate

I wanted to take a quick break from knocking on doors to wish all the moms out there Happy Mother’s Day for tomorrow. Even after passing, my mother continues to be an inspiration to me. She had a fire for justice within her that led her to leave the South at the age of 17 and then went on to raise three daughters while working two jobs. She should be a saint because we were a handful. I still take her lessons of kindness, hard work, and helping... Read More →

Letter: Councilman Rogers speaks out on “Reporting Out”

When I took my seat on the Burbank City Council in May I said I wouldn’t engage in the council’s recent practice of using the “Reporting Out” period to announce events attended since the previous council session. Among other reasons, I said – and still believe – the often lengthy readings offer more benefit to the council members than to citizens waiting for the council to get down to business. The public is entitled to know what elected officials are up to in the city’s service when not at the dais. But I’m certain... Read More →
