The  Burbank Primary Nominating Election is heading into the home stretch. The election is this Tuesday, February 26. If you’ve already mailed in your ballot, excellent! If not, it’s time to start thinking of an alternative way to get your ballot to the Burbank City Clerk’s Office. All ballots must be in the city clerk’s office by the deadline of 7 p.m. on Election Day.

Alternate election ballot drop-off sites:

The City Clerk’s Office in City Hall, 275 East Olive Avenue. Saturday, February 23, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, February 25, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, February 26, Election Day, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Buena Vista Branch Library, 300 North Buena Vista Street. Saturday, February 23, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, February 26, Election Day, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Joslyn Center, 1301 West Olive Avenue. Saturday, February 23, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, February 26, Election Day, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

McCambridge Recreation Center ,1515 North Glenoaks Boulevard. Saturday, February 23, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, February 26, Election Day, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Tuttle Center, 1731 North Ontario Street. Saturday, February 23, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, February 26, Election Day, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

If you are one of the 60,000 or so registered voters in B-town and did not get a voting packet, or spoiled or misplaced your ballot, you can get a duplicate ballot at the city clerk’s office.

I mailed off my ballot in the prepaid envelope a few days ago. Here are the candidates who got my votes.

City Council (3)

David Gordon. A strong, independent voice on the council. I don’t always agree with Dr. Gordon, but appreciate his willingness to ask the tough questions even when some of his fellow council members grumble, scoff, and complain about those questions.

Bob Frutos and Juan Guillen. The council needs new ideas and candidates eager to take a fresh look at the issues.

Burbank School Board (2)

Also, in need of new ideas and candidates willing to think outside the box.

Steve Ferguson and David Dobson.

City Clerk

Gloria Salas. I was impressed with her articulate responses to questions in one of the the League of Women Voters Glendale/Burbank candidates forums, January 30, 2013. Check out the forums here.  Candidates for city council and school board participate these forums as well.

City Treasurer

Debbie Kukta. Experienced and competent. She is running unopposed.
