HILLSIDE DISTRICT — A group of Burbank Democrats have pooled their frustrations with Republican politics to launch the Burbank Democratic Club, which held its inaugural public event in Ralph Foy Park on Saturday. "This is the first public event, so we're a bit insecure," club President Lee Wochner said. "But we're thrilled that so many political figures and candidates came to be here. That shows a great concern for the area and for Burbank." The gathering took place alongside the "Democratic Reunion," a nationwide series of events designed to galvanize Democratic Party members for the upcoming election.

Here's hoping club makes a difference As a voting Democrat it was a surprise to discover that Burbank is 60% Democratic ("Area Democrats form club," Aug. 2). That wasn't true many years ago when I first landed in Burbank. The city belonged to the Republicans. California tilts presently toward the Democratic party, although we have a Republican as a governor. He tends to be moderate on social issues and a mixed bag on other issues. He upended Gray Davis, who lost control of his positions.

PASADENA -- Tuesday's election results turned up victories for incumbents in Glendale-Burbank area U.S. Congressional District races. Rep. Adam Schiff sustained his early election night lead on Tuesday, securing 63.7% of the votes at the final tally. At his victory party, Schiff, a Democrat, reminisced with his supporters about his election to the State Senate 10 years ago, when the Democratic Party took control of the senate. After that election, the Pasadena Star Weekly ran a headline, "There's a new party in town," he said.

Ryan Carter Assemblyman Dario Frommer (D-Burbank) has apparently been approached by fellow legislators urging him to run for Speaker of the Assembly. His name, along with a few others, is being bounced around as a possible successor to Herb J. Wesson Jr. (D-Culver City), who will step down next year, when his term expires. "I'm looking at it as a possibility," Frommer said. "It's flattering. It's a tough job, but I am thinking about it. My primary job now is that I'm focused on my district."

Fresh off the special election for the 43rd Assembly District in which Democrat Mike Gatto was projected to win, voters now have roughly four months to prepare for yet another ballot to decide who will fulfill the full two-year term. When the election in November is all said and done, voters will have been asked to cast their votes four times for the same seat in about six months — a process that some stakeholders have said contributes to voter fatigue and confusion. The election also had to compete with the Lakers' championship series game.

As Congress returns from its Christmas break, health-care reform will dominate the attention of the American people. How did we get here? In November, with a 78-seat majority, House Democrats passed their version of health-care reform by two votes. On Christmas Eve, the Senate passed its version of health-care reform with 60 votes, the minimum required. However, to get the 60 votes for the Senate bill, at least four states received health-care cost waivers in order to secure the votes of their Democratic senators.

Another primary election has passed, and the number of people who ran for a political seat was minuscule at best. It was kind of surprising given the state on the nation. A person can’t walk outside without hearing their neighbor complain about an array of issues: gas prices, home foreclosures, the Iraq war, illegal immigration, healthcare, Congress, President Bush. Americans’ views on the economy and the general state of the country hit an all-time low in the history of the CBS News/New York Times poll in April.
