Below are the results from last night’s Measure B vote. Of course we’re disappointed by the outcome, but I can tell you our little band of neighborhood volunteers aren’t going away anytime soon. The Yes on B campaign spent over a $100,000 on advertising and outreach. Add to that, the close to $200,000 the airport authority paid the city to put the measure on the ballot. So around $300,000 and months of blanketing the community with glossy mailers. That up against a volunteer campaign where people paid out of pocket a few hundred dollars here and there. Too little too late. But at least we did our best.
If you are unhappy with how this turned out please get involved with your comminity. Save Burbank Neighborhoods and Burbank Viewpoints are good websites to bookmark. Local elections have a direct impact on your lives. Get involved! I’m looking forward to getting involved with the City Council primary election in February. And as always in Burbank, there will be plenty of airport issues for years to come. So get involved and stay involved.
