An important date is coming for the city of Burbank. May 1 is almost here and the City Council, per the City Charter, must choose a mayor and vice mayor. My vote for mayor is for Bob Frutos. The reasons are many, he won his seat outright at the primary, a feat unheard of since Stacey Murphy. Bob's also an experienced leader in the LAPD where he's a community liaison to the work he did on Burbank's Charter Review Committee and fighting for more oversight on the Police Commission.
The desire to want to hand the gavel to Dr. Gordon might be there, but let's look at all aspects of this important decision. His relationship with staff is at best tense, as he constantly calls into question their skills, their “agenda” and ultimately their professionalism. His attacks disguised as questions border on giving them a hostile workplace lawsuit. No doubt they must think of their benefits and pension to remain on the job.
