The office of city treasurer is one race Burbank residents won't have to worry about, with Debbie Kukta — the former school board member who was appointed to fill the vacated post — facing no opposition for her seat. Interim City Clerk Zizette Mullins, however, will face two challengers in the Feb. 26 primary, Nonna von Sonn and Maria Gloria Salas.
Mullins was also appointed to fill the vacancy, and so is running for the first time.
CITY CLERK CANDIDATES
Occupation: interim Burbank city clerk
Zizette Mullins was appointed as Burbank city clerk in June after a 25-year career working in multiple departments for the city of Glendale.
In Glendale, the 30-year Burbank resident served as the community relations coordinator and held positions in the finance, economic development and the city's utility.
Prior to that, Mullins worked as a banker at Wells Fargo in Burbank.
When former City Clerk Margarita Campos retired early, the vacant post “was a great opportunity to say, ‘I'm coming home again,'” Mullins said.
