Golonski's 60 seconds for 60 days trial period is perfect timing. It
effectively limits speaking time at council meetings in the crucial weeks
preceding the arrival of the ROAR mail-in ballots. Simply look at a
calendar, and you will see that Golonski's trial period conveniently will
not be back on the council's agenda until mid-September, after the ROAR
ballots are mailed out.
It is also not a coincidence that City Council voted to make ROAR the
first experimental, never been tried in the history of Burbank, mail-in
Give me a break. Burbank voters are not gullible. These are the kinds
of shenanigans that make people skeptical and distrustful of politicians.
It is obvious that City Council needs to undermine the ROAR initiative
because ROAR holds them legally accountable to the residents, rather than
the residents hoping the council will do the right thing.
As for future elections, week after week Councilman David Laurell
gibbers on and on, talking out of both sides of his mouth, but in the end
always votes for whatever Councilman Golonski deems appropriate. Mr.
Laurell has proven to be a good company man.
So, when David Laurell campaigns for reelection, I won't be impressed
by the "Adopt-a-Pet" host position he cleverly finagled for
self-promoting, name and face voter recognition. I won't be swayed when
he smiles, shakes hands, pinches babies' cheeks and promises to serve the
people of Burbank. I will know he is panhandling for my vote. I won't
make the same mistake twice.
Don't believe the negative hype from City Council or Leader columnist
Will Rogers. Your ROAR mail-in ballot will arrive in early September.
Let's protect the investment in our homes and the city we all love. We
deserve a curfew and cap on flights.
Vote YES on ROAR.
