Primary Election Commentary – Burbank City Council

We Love Burbank – the Media Capital of the World; It’s Churches, Schools, Police & Fire services, Parks, Small-Town Feel & Quality of Life. But that Quality of Life is under threat from agenda-driven Politicians, Staff bureaucrats & Developers who want to buy & sell Burbank for their own benefit. From the approval of the Cusumano’s Talaria condos traffic nightmare on Olive with it’s extra density & lack of affordable housing, to the 3rd  St. & Cypress Apt. project also approved by the Council* (Gabel-Luddy) & Planning Board (Rizzotti) @ 25% above code, tentative plans for the old Ikea site to be converted to mixed-use Apartments instead of an open commercial retail space, uncertainty re development plans for the massive 58 acre Airport B-6 Property (aka “Opportunity Site”) being sold to fund a new “safer” 14 gate terminal, rampant mansionization, speeding & unlicensed care/sober living facilities…Burbank is looking/feeling more like Glendale & West L.A. every year.

We need to put the brakes on! We need to change the fundamental direction the City is going in. We need smart growth that puts the needs of the Residents and our Neighborhoods above the profits of Developers. We need New Leaders who’s No.1 desire is to Serve & Protect You and I; Our Families, Our Neighborhoods, Our Livelihoods. So please join us in supporting David Nos & Juan Guillen for Burbank City Council, 2 longtime Burbank Residents & Small Business Owners with servant hearts & the right mix of experience & youth to be your voice on the City Council. And let’s work together to make Burbank a better place to live, work & play for everyone.

Update 2/24/15: It’s Election Day! If you haven’t already mailed in your ballot you’ll need to drop it off today before 7pm. Today’s drop-off locations incl. Joslyn & Tuttle Centers, City Clerk’s Office, Buena Vista Library, McCambridge Rec Ctr., John Muir Middle School, Edison Elementary & Burbank Adult School. #VoteBurbank * Check back tonight after 8pm for Election Results.

Open Letter to Mike Gatto re Co-ed Bathrooms

March 22, 2014

PJI@CCCH
Gloria’s letter to Assemblyman Mike Gatto Re AB 1266 – the Co-Ed Bathroom / Shower Bill (Don’t make Mama Bear angry).

I am writing to voice my strong disapproval of your vote in support of AB 1266, the Transgender Co-ed Bathroom Bill. I cannot believe the legislator I voted for in the past 2 elections would support such a horrendous bill. I am a Parent of a 6th grader in the BUSD and can tell you that my daughter and her friends are horrified at the thought of confused boys going into the girls bathroom, not to mention showers if they elect to play on girls sports team. Why would you choose to inconvenience 99% of our kids to accommodate a handful of students? Why do you care more about promoting the LGBT agenda vs. promoting Family values and protecting our children? I can also tell you the nearly every parent I’ve spoken to in the district and @ Church share my concerns. And this is not a partisan political issue; parents agree regardless of their political leanings.

Gender-confused children are allowed to use Teachers bathrooms in many schools and this should suffice. Some schools are assigning special gender-neutral bathrooms just for these children, again a much better & safer solution. I ask that you re-consider your support for this & move to repeal the law immediately before the voters do. As you know, the Bill is currently in limbo pending approval of a ballot measure to repeal it. Unfortunately Sec. of State Debra Bowen continues to deliberately circumvent the will of the people by first refusing to count all the signatures submitted, & after being ordered by a judge to count them, throwing out 131k signatures she claims are invalid, and doing everything she can to hinder & intimidate those challenging valid thrown out signatures. My husband & I vow to continue to educate parents & members of the faith-based community in Burbank on this issue, to hold lawmakers accountable for their actions, and to protect our Children’s Right to Privacy.
