From another local site less than half as bright:
For the final council seat Sharon Springer takes David Gordon into a runoff. This was quite the shock since the other incumbents cruised to such easy reelections and because a majority of voters did not vote for an incumbent councilmember, David Gordon. We’ve made no attempt to hide our distaste of the creepy and clueless Gordon. City workers often quietly apologize to citizens for his bluster and how much he embarrasses the city by constantly speaking about things he just doesn’t know diddly squat about. Burbank residents would be better served by Ms. Springer.
Apparently the new thing too is to call Gordon creepy. The Pet Parents tried to pull this a few years ago back when they were alleging a nefarious Jewish conspiracy between Gordon and a local pet shop owner to sell tortured animals from under the floorboards or wherever.
Gordon wasn’t too keen to write new law for a non-concern that relied upon an equally disingenuous interpretation of the supposed breeding conditions of retail animals. Conveniently, this group also had admitted plans to start their own pet business in town. And so they went after him.
They even tried to drag Gordon’s kid into it, who later made a masterful appearance from the dais in his Merchant Marine uniform thanking everyone for their concern.
Btw … which city workers badmouth their own city council person to others?
