The candidates running for three Burbank City Council seats are cranking up their campaigns for the final push to election day, April 14. Last Monday, all six candidates appeared at a forum in Burbank’s Magnolia Park area.
If you missed the forum, the Burbank Leader has profiles of all six council contenders in this weekend’s edition of the newspaper and on its website. Reporter Christopher Cadelago’s profiles are really interesting short feature pieces with quotes from the candidates on their views and concerns. The candidates are Elise Stearns-Niesen, Garen Yegparian, Incumbent David Gordon, Kimberly Jo, Jess Talamantes, and Incumbent/Mayor Dave Golonski.
Yesterday, my voter information pamphlet and mail-in ballot for next month’s election arrived in my mailbox. Also, another clear sign the election is coming up fast, a slew of glossy political flyers I received over the past few days. And that’s a good thing. Written material works a lot better for me than those political messages left on my phone. The flyers and newspaper profiles provide basic information on who the candidates are, their major supporters, and what they stand for.
