I want to express my appreciation to the Burbank Leader for its endorsement in the recent primary election and, perhaps more importantly, to your coverage of the candidates and issues. Every Burbank resident who voted in the Feb. 22 primary election was the beneficiary of your coverage.
During the campaign, I had the opportunity to meet and speak with residents across the city who shared their ideas and suggestions for dealing with the many issues that confront our city. As the campaign moves ahead, I look forward to continuing that dialogue on my door-to-door walks. These have afforded me a deeper appreciation of many of the city’s continuing challenges, as well as many aspects of our city that make it a great place to live and work.
I appreciated the candor of residents’ positions and look forward to working twice as hard to earn their votes come April 12. The budget, jobs, transparency, neighborhood protection, the airport, development, traffic — these issues and others I encourage you to contact me about and make your feelings known, by either calling me at (818) 823-1594, or e-mailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
