The Burbank landscape is dotted with political signs from the various candidates campaigning for the two seats on the city council and the three seats on the Burbank School Board. While most are the typical yard signs you see during the election season — some of the 2015 candidates have come up with some creative alternatives.

Love the super-sized Sharon Springer ice cream cone sign. Springer is one of seven candidates running for Burbank City Council. Another council contender, Elise Stearns- Niesen, has a huge banner displayed on the front of Unique Vintage clothing shop, 2013 West Magnolia Boulevard in Burbank.

Meanwhile, the ballots keep coming into City Hall. Burbank City Clerk, Zizette Mullins, told Media City Groove late today that the number of ballots received has jumped from 7,200 on Friday to “a little over 8,000.”

Voters have until 7 p.m. tomorrow, Election Day for the Burbank primary, to get their ballots to a designated drop-off center or to City Hall.

    Absolutely loved the homemade signs. Count on this tactic being used by others to mimic a grassroots candidacy.

    I wonder if Nos and Stearns-Niesen will bow out of further tries for the council after this? With some support aka $$$$ I think Sharon Springer has a good chance to make it next time.

    I look forward to the coming forums … disappointed about Jesse T’s dismal totals. I really liked his campaign style and ideas. Exciting races this time around – for sure.

    Al,

    I think from the tone of his concession Facebook post, Tangk (see “Burbank Primary Election: Concessions and thank yous” on this blog) will not fade into the background. I liked his campaign style and ideas, too.

    As for Sharon Springer, it’s not just money, but a serious well thought out campaign that is needed. I agree, Springer has potential.

    I don’t know if either David Nos and Elise Stearns-Niesen will make another try at city council. We’ll probably have to wait until the dust settles from the primary to hear their thoughts on future campaigns.
