On behalf of the Burbank Teachers Assn., we would like to thank
everyone who agreed that a change was needed on the school board and
voted accordingly. We particularly appreciate those voters who
listened to the issues and decided to support our recommended
candidates: Paul Krekorian, Dave Kemp and Larry Applebaum.
In electing Dave Kemp and placing nonincumbents in the second,
third and fourth positions in the voting totals, it seems clear
voters want, and expect, fresh new approaches to problem-solving on
the board. The BTA will work hard in the next month to tell voters
why we believe Krekorian and Applebaum are best qualified to help
lead our district into a new era of leadership, partnership and
For those community members who agreed to post our signs for the
primary election, please do not discard them. We are working hard to
provide a sticker to modify the signs for the general election April
8. Since Krekorian and Applebaum are in the runoff, we are placing a
sticker that says “and” in the middle of the sign, over Kemp. If we
have not modified your sign, please call us at 240-9180 and we will
send someone to “sticker” your sign.
C. KIM ALLENDER AND DIANA ABASTA
Co-Presidents, Burbank Teachers Assn.
