A number of candidates running for office in 2015 Burbank elections, were among the hundreds of volunteers who pitched in to help with that enormous effort to deliver some holiday joy to some of the less fortunate in our community. Among the candidates spotted at George Washington Elementary, 2322 North Lincoln Street, were Burbank School Board contender Dr. Armond Aghakhanian…
… and Burbank City Council hopefuls, Juan Guillen and Will Rogers.
More than 500 holiday basket got delivered to needy families. Details on that story here. Meanwhile, several candidates have received some important endorsements.
School board candidate and attorney, Vahe Hovanessian, has a list of endorsements on his campaign website, among them, present board members Larry Applebaum, Charlene Tabet, Dave Kemp, and Ted Bunch.
