I am supporting Kimberley Clark in her candidacy for Burbank city clerk.
Kimberley is exceptionally qualified for the City Clerk position and will bring real experience and a fresh, balanced perspective and voice to City Hall.
I had the opportunity to work directly with Kimberley during the successful Measure S School Bond Campaign. I was chair of the campaign, and she was a key liaison for the Burbank Unified School District. She was responsive, amiable, resourceful and smart. She truly understands the importance of voter participation and she has demonstrated her ability to connect with the residents of Burbank.
I have worked with four city clerks as a community volunteer, commission member and councilmember, which has provided me unique perspective on the clerk’s role in city governance. I’ve seen firsthand what works well for Burbank.
Kimberley Clark is the very best choice for city clerk because of her aligned experience, her exceptional people skills, and her firm commitment to uphold democratic values. A Burbank native, she also has a deep understanding of our community and knows that our citizens demand and deserve the highest level of integrity from elected officials. One day one, she will bring her many years of relevant experience in preparing public agency agendas, minutes, mandatory filings and providing election oversight.
Please join me in voting for Kimberley Clark for city clerk — a open perspective and a fresh voice for all of Burbank.
