This past week proved to be historic for women, both at the ballot box and on the ballot.
Representing 53% of the electorate in last Tuesday's election, the female vote proved to be decisive in reelecting President Obama to a second term, as well as electing a record number of women to Congress.
With the power of women so clearly in the spotlight, it was fitting that Tuesday evening saw Mayor Dave Golonski and the Burbank City Council honor Connie Wilson for her distinguished record of public service to the City of Burbank.
A longtime resident, Wilson served on the Library Board of Trustees, as a member of Friends of the Burbank Public Library, a Burbank school librarian, a member of the La Providencia Guild of Children's Hospital Los Angeles and as the Voter Service Director for the League of Women Voters of Burbank/Glendale.
She and her late husband, Alan, were also active members of the Starlight Hills Committee.
