Lolita Harper CIVIC CENTER -- Burbank city officials had much to celebrate Tuesday as they bid farewell to two longtime public servants, renewed the terms of three veterans, welcomed two rookies and selected a new mayor and vice mayor. New Councilwoman Marsha Ramos and City Treasurer Donna Anderson stood at the podium and took their first oaths of office next to reelected council members Dave Golonski and Stacey Murphy. Returning City Clerk Judie Sarquiz swore in the city officials, but she had to turn the microphone over to be sworn in herself.

Will Rogers As a councilman for eight years, and up through his final meeting yesterday, Bill Wiggins proved a council member can consistently support and look out for the business community without running roughshod over residents and their interests, and without engaging in tactics that lead to having to avoid looking people in the eye. Before Wiggins turned up, there was reason to wonder if that combination was...

Having publicly stated in the past that I am in favor of term limits, I would also like to publicly state what we all know -- there are exceptions to every case. I believe that Dave Golonski is an exception, or more aptly, exceptional. I believe that when an individual demonstrates he can do a job well and desires to continue in that job, as is the case with Dave, then vote him in. I have had the pleasure of working with Dave Golonski for the past eight years and have come to admire Dave's honesty, work ethic and unique ability to "think outside the box."

Bill Wiggins I strongly agree with your Dec. 6 editorial "Handling of water concerns laughable." In the editorial you state "city and school district officials have seemed to rely too heavily on public relations rather than frank and open dialogue to handle the recent concern over the presence of chromium 6 in Burbank's water supply." Nothing could be further from the truth. The City Council has approached the chromium issue from two fronts. The first is to give the public as much information as possible on the subject.

With a light heart and an only slightly exaggerated sense of relief, Stacey Murphy relinquished the mayor's chair this week to Bill Wiggins. Murphy, 41, was the third woman to hold the mayor's post in Burbank. The small-business owner and mother of three sons has been on the council for three years and has lived in Burbank for a decade and a half. She will be up for reelection next year. Although the mayor's job is largely a ceremonial one, it does carry a high degree of visibility and a fair amount of influence.

Robert Blechl CIVIC CENTER -- Burbank Vice Mayor Bob Kramer said even the City Council isn't exempt from recycling. His case in point: Bill Wiggins, who on Monday began his third term as mayor in the past six years. As expected, Wiggins was elected mayor by his colleagues Monday during a Burbank City Council reorganization meeting at City Hall. Wiggins, on the council since 1993, also served as mayor in 1994-1995 and 1996-1997. With his ascension to the middle chair on the council, Wiggins becomes the first person in Burbank history to serve three separate terms as mayor.

Paul Clinton CIVIC CENTER -- After his near-certain installation as mayor at Monday's annual changing of the guard, Bill Wiggins will enter his final year on the City Council. "I believe we need new blood, people with divergent interests," Wiggins told the Leader during an exclusive interview at his Glendale metal-plating business "In my case, I would get stagnant in my thinking after eight years." But Wiggins, who is expected to be elected by his colleagues to replace Mayor Stacey Murphy for his third one-year term as mayor, said he won't be coasting through his final year in office.
