As Burbank begins its centennial festivities, we need to remember that what we're really celebrating is 100 years of self government. And the "kick-off" event is the election for City Council and Burbank Unified School District Board of Education on Feb. 22.
As part of this election, the League of Women Voters Glendale/Burbank will be presenting a candidate forum at 7 p.m. Jan. 19 in the City Council chambers. Timed to occur just before the all mail-in ballots go into the mail, and rebroadcast on Burbank TV6 and streamed on the Burbank TV website, it gives all our citizens many opportunities to watch the forum and make an informed judgment on how they want to vote.
Ideally, everybody would come to the forum and submit a question to the candidates. But life gets in the way, and we can't all come on Jan.19. So the league invites you to submit a question via our website, http://www.lwvglendaleburbank.org, and then watch the forum at your leisure.
