Lack of signs
leads to confusion
A letter from me to the City Council and the traffic department
requested that two corrective signs be posted for east on Victory
Boulevard traffic to east on Burbank Boulevard, advising that the
far-right lane goes south to Victory Boulevard only. Approximately 30
cars per day between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. make unsafe changes from the
improperly marked right-turn-only lane to the lane on their immediate
left, and they almost cause accidents doing so.
Thirty cars per day multiplied by one year amounts to 10,950
unsafe lane changes. City Traffic Engineer Ken Johnson said the
problem would be resolved as soon as 2004. But each of these lane
changes violates the law.
Ken Johnson: proactive means to prevent.
Voters: thanks, from a Bunch
Thank you, voters of Burbank, for electing me to the school board.
I especially appreciate the many fine volunteers who worked so hard
on my campaign. Without you, I would not have been successful.
Contributions from many of you provided the funds to conduct the
campaign. Those of you who supported me by your votes, signs in your
yards, making phone calls, walking precincts and endorsements all
helped to elect me. The early endorsements by the California School
Employees Assn., Rev. Larry Stamper and the Burbank Leader laid the
foundation that helped support grow until success was achieved.
Now comes the time for me to deliver on the confidence that you
have shown in me. I will work hard to improve our schools.
However, I can only do that with your support and cooperation. The
next few years will be difficult as we face budget problems and the
difficult decisions that must be made.
You will always be able to express your concerns to me, and I will
explain my decisions.
After I officially become a member of the board, I plan to set up
monthly meetings where you can inform me about your concerns and
Burbank School board
