As Los Angeles County prosecutors review allegations that Sunder Ramani is feigning Burbank residency to run in the 43rd Assembly District, his neighbors at the West Alameda Avenue building say they've rarely seen the Republican candidate, if at all.
Ramani's residence became a campaign issue earlier this month when the Los Angeles County district attorney's office opened an inquiry into whether he primarily lives in the district he hopes to represent.
Ramani's campaign filings with the state indicate he lives in Burbank, where he is also registered to vote. Yet he owns a home in La Cañada Flintridge, which is not part of the 43rd District, and has used that address as recently as April in making political contributions to others.
Bhupesh Parikh, with property management firm Pari Enterprises, said Ramani began to rent the Alameda Avenue apartment before the April special election primary in which Ramani won the Republican nomination.
