South Hills Church hosted a wonderful BBQ honoring our Police & Firefighters at their Burbank Campus this past Sunday following their 10.45am Service. The BBQ was a culmination of their Love-The-818 campaign that included¬†helping BUSD Teachers @ various school sites set-up their classrooms and providing Teacher lunches, helping BHC¬†pack¬†100’s of free backpacks for¬†kids who need them,¬†BTAC undergarment drive, cleaning up Chandler Bikeway & serving at the LA Dream Center projects. In attendance were Burbank Mayor Jess Talamantes (ret. Fireman), his Mom & son Scott; Councilman Bob Frutos (ret. Police); BPD Police Chief Scott LaChasse & Dep. Chief Michael Albanese; and Police & Fire personnel from Orange Groove & Verdugo Fire Stations. It was an honor to serve the men & woman who keep us safe everyday! I also had the chance to chat to the Mayor about a number of topics¬†including various aspects of Police¬†& Fire Dept. operations (recruiting, sro’s), as well as the upcoming Airport Terminal vote. Thank You Pastor Dave Stewart and South Hills Burbank for spreading the love of Jesus throughout our community.

Burbank City Manager (+ Staff) Meet-&-Greet

November 10, 2013

I had the privilege of attending a wonderful meet-&-greet for new City Manager Mark Scott hosted by Burbank City Councilman¬†Bob Frutos & Marsha Ramos. Also¬†in attendance were Police Chief Scott LaChasse, City Clerk Zizette Mullins & a host of Burbank community leaders.¬†Scott has impressed many since he took over the reigns as CM a few months ago with his humility & willingness to listen to everyone, regardless of whether they wear a suit & tie or a hawaiian shirt, a refreshing change vs. the previous arrogance & indifference displayed by some Staff members. I’ve also been impressed by his professionalism & honesty, and while I didn’t agree with his $300k contract, I have a lot more confidence that with his experience ¬†& leadership approach we can right the ship, make better/wiser decisions & ultimately make Burbank a better place to live, work & play.

Among the topics I heard discussed during the evening; Tuesday night’s marathon 10hr Council meeting that went to nearly 4am, the Lemonade¬†and Family Services Agency¬†Youth Counseling¬†decisions, the new Bob Hope Airport Terminal Measure B vote (2015) & B-6 property use/sale, the BWP fund transfer lawsuit & recent tragic house fire death¬†of a disconnected customer, the Cusamano’s Talaria Condo project w/Whole Foods, BPD Litigation incl. 2 recent arbitration rulings against the City, the $12M price tag ¬†& the Valento “extortion” indictment, the Walmart ruling re traffic mitigations & Staff’s “dishonesty”, as well as the Council decision NOT to appeal the ruling (3-2 vote), the DeBell Golf course ongoing viability, the Starlight Bowl, traffic,¬†and much more. A night of great food, fellowship & conversations.
