The Burbank City Council this week decided to appoint interim replacements for City Clerk Margarita Campos and City Treasurer Donna Anderson — both of whom plan to retire from their elected posts early — rather than hold a special election.
Campos and Anderson, who each have held their elected positions for more than a decade, will be retiring on June 1 and July 7, respectively — roughly a year before their terms are set to end in May 2013.
Campos, who has worked for the city in various capacities since 1974, said in an interview that the time was right for her to go.
“The time comes in everybody's life when they need to make a decision in their personal life,” she said, adding that it was about priorities.
Campos declined to elaborate on what she said was a personal reason to leave office early.
“I have made this decision for my own personal reason and my priorities at this time,” Campos said. “I'm not walking away or leaving a large amount of time on a term.”
