Our Endorsement Committee consisted of Burbank residents who do not hold any positions in any political parties, candidate campaigns or business organizations. We care about finding solutions to the problems we all face. These endorsed candidates are clearly committed to improving the present and future of Burbank. Based on their responses to our questionnaire, they prove that they understand the challenges we face as a city. Even more important, they show their commitment to taking responsibility for finding solutions.
Carmenita is a small business owner, renter, mother and grandmother, and has proven to be an effective Burbank activist. She has the drive and ability to bring creative solutions based on her proven collaboration skills. For example, she works directly with the Burbank Police Department to improve their relationship with marginalized communities. She recognizes that how the City functions as a system through all City departments needs to change in order for our quality of life to improve. We appreciate Carmenita’s commitment to take innovative action to address challenges such as homelessness and mental health in the community.
Nikki is the face of the young and upcoming Burbank generation. As a life long resident and renter, she understands our challenges and what has and hasn’t been done for our city on many levels. Her experience as a nonprofit program manager and the results she has achieved show that she knows how to overcome government bureaucracy to design and implement effective solutions. We are confident that Nikki will work to transition our local government departments from being a stifling, discouraging and frustrating experience for residents into a streamlined process that will effectively address the needs of our city.
Tamala’s BVB questionnaire responses show a depth of thought and knowledge about what has worked and what has not worked to address our on-going problems. She wants to implement solutions that don’t just check a box but actually incorporate values. For example, Tamala strives to connect housing solutions with sustainability solutions. We appreciate how Tamala sees how our city functions as a complex ecosystem where a change on one level will be reflected through all levels of Burbank. It is important that an appreciation of this multi-layered cause and effect be part of City Council’s decisions.
