The position of “Mayor of Burbank” carries no weight, other than running the meetings, attending ribbon cutting ceremonies and other civic functions. Mayor Anja Reinke and Vice Mayor Jess Talamantes are well suited for the newly “picked” positions. Mickey Mouse could do it.
Councilman David Gordon, at first I was appalled that they didn’t pick you (“Reinke named new mayor,” May 5). With a blatant obvious snub of you, the lame excuse that they didn’t like the way you voted on the budget, etc., etc. Is there some jealousy involved here?
Gordon, thank them! This leaves your valuable time to be focused on the real issues and problems the city had. Your probing and in depth analysis of all the relevant issues in the city are welcomed by most residents and you are respected for having the concerns and well-being of the citizens first and foremost.
