Now that we've gotten the Sunday News-Press & Leader off the ground, it's time to celebrate. Please stop by our launch party from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at our offices: 221 N. Brand Blvd., Glendale. You'll need to let us know you're coming so we have enough food and drinks. Drop us a line at (818) 637-3254.
The launch of the Sunday edition, though important for us, is hardly the only thing going on these days. Both Burbank and Glendale are gearing up for their respective elections. Burbank's first round is on Feb. 22, while Glendale's one-and-only election day is April 5. If needed, Burbank will hold a second round on April 12.
Readers of the Burbank Leader saw the paper's endorsements last Saturday. The editorial board will be conducting interviews of candidates for Glendale City Council, the Board of Education and Glendale Community College's Board of Trustees in the coming weeks. We are planning to announce our recommendations for those races — as well as for the local ballot initiative Measure S — on Saturday, March 12.
