BURBANK — The arrival of political hit pieces in Burbank mailboxes late last week has sparked questions about the origin of the mailers. The fliers, paid for by the Coalition for Responsible Leadership, attacked City Council candidates Gary Bric and Anja Reinke on several grounds — including Bric's 1997 driving under the influence conviction and allegations that Reinke represents unsavory clients in her law practice. The coalition was formerly registered as the Good Government Committee and has as its treasurer Kinde Durkee, whose accounting and business-management firm is based out of Burbank, according to state records.

BURBANK — As voters learn of City Council candidate Gary Bric's criminal record, he hopes it won't mar his chances in April for one of two open seats. Court documents show that Bric pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of alcohol in June 1997 and was arrested in 1990 after he was accused of being involved in bookmaking, which is accepting bets on results of sporting contests. The bookmaking charges were dropped after the district attorney prosecuting the case would not reveal the identity of a key informant in the case.

It's not Thanksgiving, but I am thankful. As a candidate for City Council, 2,741 people had faith in me on primary election day in Burbank ("Four in council race," Feb. 28). I received more than 70 contributions and numerous endorsements. Volunteers spent many hours working on my behalf. I met wonderful people while knocking on doors, at coffee socials and other events. I met the people of Burbank. No Monday morning quarterback; I got to play in the game on Sunday afternoon.

Laura Sturza Residents favored City Council candidates who live close to their precincts in this month's general election, but also cast their ballots based on the experience of those running for office. "I think that my expertise in dealing with airport and port authorities had something to do with [my strong showing near the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport,]" said Todd Campbell, the policy director for the Coalition for Clean Air. Campbell, who won the second open seat on the council, and incumbent Jef Vander Borght, the top vote-getter, earned more than 40% of the votes in some precincts -- Campbell in one and Vander Borght in four.

Laura Sturza Months of knocking on doors paid off for architect Jef Vander Borght and environmental policy director Todd Campbell, who won seats on the Burbank City Council in Tuesday's election. "I'm extremely humbled," said Campbell, policy director for the Coalition for Clean Air. "I always thought that all of the candidates were very qualified." Incumbent Councilman Vander Borght, 51 made his first run for a council seat, having been appointed to the post by the council after former mayor Bob Kramer resigned in March 2002.

AS IF YOU ASKED Hooray, the election is over! Now we can look forward to the election! Regular readers know Burbank's municipal elections are a two-step process, and yesterday's primary was the first. As I write this, the polls haven't even closed yet. But candidates who won more than 50% of the votes automatically win their seat, and will take office May 1. The top two finishers for each remaining vacancy will continue to the general election April 8. Residents who don't read this newspaper or otherwise monitor local politics and politicians were doubtless puzzled by the recent spate of campaign signs, this so soon after November's statewide brawl.
