Incumbent City Councilwoman Emily Gabel-Luddy will be returning to her post and journalist Will Rogers will be joining her on the five-member council, with the pair emerging victorious in Tuesday’s municipal election.
Unofficial results posted by the Burbank City Clerk’s Office showed Rogers earning 28.6 percent of the vote in Tuesday’s all-mail balloting, with Gabel-Luddy receiving 27.7 percent. They bested a pair of business owners vying for council seats — Chris Rizzotti, who earned 19.1 percent of the vote, and Juan Guillen Jr., who earned 24.2 percent.
Meanwhile, teacher Armond Aghakhanian claimed the available seat on the Burbank Unified School District board of education, earning 53.5 percent of the vote and defeating challenger Gregory Sousa, a graduate student/parent who received 46.4 percent.
Roberta Reynolds and Steve Ferguson claimed seats on the board during February’s primary.
