Why you should support Konstantine Anthony

With new ideas and innovative technology, we can help make Burbank a city for everyone.

A progressive Burbank is a successful Burbank.

This has been true since its founding in 1887. By all metrics, our beautiful city flourishes: business thrives, population booms, and our schools rival the best in the country.

For Burbank’s future, here’s what I believe:

A progressive Burbank is an affordable Burbank.
Good jobs bring workers, so we must meet our population density with innovative housing policies. Having managed many properties, I know we can stabilize soaring rental prices by supporting owner-operated properties and implementing rent control solutions that minimize abuse and empower residents.

A progressive Burbank is a compassionate Burbank.
While a majority of our paychecks have increased in recent years, some of our fellow neighbors still haven’t recovered from the devastating recession that led to Burbank’s rising homeless population. Simple steps can encourage the success of those in need and ensure we all have a place to call home at night.

A progressive Burbank is a united Burbank.
Burbank has the finest police officers in southern California, yet their numbers are dwindling. We must incentivize the City of Burbank to hire police officers from within our community and to encourage current officers to live closer to the city they serve.

I believe a progressive Burbank is a successful Burbank.

My plan to make Burbank housing affordable for the middle class

In the past few years, we have seen large-scale overdevelopment on the streets of Burbank. Amongst our small suburban community, these corporate investors have wreaked havoc on the housing market.

My plan is three-fold:

– First, I will not endorse any development or rezoning for future development unless the design includes the following: affordable rents, well-paying jobs, pro-union labor, exemplary environmental practices, and reinvestment back into the city.

– Second, I will work to pass a comprehensive rent stabilization ordinance, city-wide, that includes the following provisions:

  • An end to predatory lease agreements
  • Yearly caps on rent increases, tied to inflation
  • A consumer-protection rating system posted at every main entrance
  • An exemption for each building with less than 50 units

– Third, I want to increase the advisory capacity of the Landlord-Tenant Commission, giving them the authority to hear cases and make specific recommendations to the Planning Board and the City Council. The city will employ year-round legal counsel for use by any Burbank tenant. These services will be paid for through a one-quarter of one percent (0.0025) tax on all rental units.

​My plan to solve Homelessness in Burbank

Currently, we have no homeless shelters in Burbank. My goal is to rezone the Burbank Temporary Aid Center (BTAC) to a 24/7 facility, complete with full-time social workers and case managers. We must fight the intersectional crises of mental health, drug addiction, and rampant poverty plaguing our fellow neighbors.

My plan to maximize Community Policing in Burbank

The top complaint I hear from Burbank police officers is that they would love to live in the city but can’t afford it. I believe we can do better. I plan to give a $300/month housing credit to all uniformed police officers who live inside the city limits, plus a $100/month credit per each dependent and/or spouse.

    “I originally met Konstantine Anthony through my advocacy work in the autism community, where just about every topic you could think of becomes a source of heated argument. With Konstantine by my side as a volunteer and a collaborator, I am always impressed by his sensitivity, by his ability to not just hear but really listen and show that he understands the pain from which strong opinions arise, and then to also take a hard stance where it really matters. These are exactly the qualities we need in our government, and so I am proud to voice my support and endorsement of Konstantine Anthony for Burbank City Council.”
