Bob Frutos issued the following statement Saturday…
Bob Frutos, Chair of the Burbank Police Commission, entered the race for Burbank City Council to participate in his civic duty as a contributor to the betterment of the City and its residents. After a much contested primary election, the voters of Burbank selected Bob and Emily Gabel-Luddy to enter into a runoff election for the privilege of serving the residents of Burbank.
The April 12th runoff election proved to be a contested race as both candidates worked hard to communicate their vision for leadership as future city councilpersons. In the end, the diligence of both campaigns managed to provide the city with the closest race seen in Burbank. And after the margin favored candidate Emily Gabel-Luddy, Bob contacted her to congratulate her in a well run race. Bob also indicated to her that he places his support and disposition to her 110% as our next city council member.
Bob’s interest will now be to ensure the success of the council in continuing to serve the residents of the city of Burbank. “This is the first time I run for public office, and it has been a privilege to have received such warm support from many old and new friends from our great city.” Bob further stated, “I will do everything in my power to help move the City forward. Emily will be a great council person for Burbank and I want her to know that I will be a contributor to her tenure as she engages in realizing her vision to make Burbank a city we can all be proud of.”
