The results showed that a string of campaign mailers bashing Bric and Reinke in the weeks before the mail-in ballot deadline did little to deviate from the outcome of the primary election in February, when the candidates finished in the same order.
Bric, a restaurant owner, and Reinke, an attorney and Realtor, both alluded to that during their victory interviews in council chambers.
"The city of Burbank is such a small, great town that there's no need for certain types of politics," Bric said. "I said from the beginning I was going to run a clean campaign. We put our trust in the voters and obviously it panned out this evening."
Reinke shared Bric's sentiments, expressing gratitude to friends, family and members of the community who all contributed to her election.
"I made a pledge at the beginning of the campaign to run a clean campaign and I think the city responded to that," she said. "I think that the city of Burbank wants positive candidates that have positive things to say and want to do good things for the city of Burbank."
Carolyn Berlin chimed in with thanks for the support she and her husband received during the campaign.
"We want to thank everyone who worked for our campaign and supported us," Carolyn Berlin said. "We tried to communicate about the issues in terms of how a lot of people feel on things like traffic and development — and those issues are still with us."
