A volunteer working for Steve Ferguson’s campaign for a seat on the Burbank Unified school board was fined $950 after pleading no contest this week to charges that he stole signs belonging to a rival candidate, officials said.
The volunteer, Scott Trinidad, was fined $200 plus penalty assessments, bringing the total to $950, said Burbank Asst. City Atty. Danny Wei.
At 6:50 p.m. on Feb. 11, surveillance footage showed Trinidad pulling up in a silver car and taking two campaign signs for school board candidate Charlene Tabet from a business in the 1200 block of West Magnolia Boulevard., according to Burbank Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn.
