When the City Council convenes on June 28 to fill the vacated positions of city clerk and city treasurer, they’ll have 17 applicants representing a wide swath of the local political sphere to choose from.
The two spots are typically elected positions, but early retirement announcements by former City Clerk Margarita Campos and City Treasurer Donna Anderson prompted the City Council to decide to fill the positions before next year’s regularly scheduled election.
The 17 candidates each submitted a video presentation along with their applications — all of which are available on the city’s website. At the special June 28 meeting, each applicant will have three minutes at the podium before the council appoints by simply majority.
Some of the applicants will likely be familiar to the public, including Zizette Mullins, who is on the Civil Service Board; Debbie Kukta, a Burbank Unified school board member; Garen Yegparian, a member of the parks and recreation board and golf oversight committee; and Will Rogers, a former columnist for Times Community News and public fixture.
