Here are the 2012 election results for local races followed by the ballot measures. While we all may not like the outcomes of some of the local races, it doesn’t mean we have to hate one another for a difference of opinions. Now is the time to move forward for our community and I would like to offer congratulations to my opponents as well as the many other victors in yesterdays election.

  1. Wow, Go Monica Wilson! What a surprise! Burk, sorry to see your hard work didn’t translate into more votes. I think Oakley will be very sorry.

    Great job to Frazier, DeSaulnier and McNerney. They will represent our area very well in higher office.

  2. This election highlights just how uninformed Oakley is with the election of Doug Hardcastle. While I am happy for Burgis and Romick, Oakley gets what we deserve with him on the council knowing full well he abused his position at Ironhouse while Doug Scheer being elected is a joke considering his failure at the Chamber. The Times needs to hold some of the blame for not bringing anything Burkholder and others have claimed forward PRIOR to the election. When we get higher rates from Ironhouse in the future, I hope Burk says “I told you so”.

    Burk, keep on fighting the good fight and now that you are no longer a candidate, at least you will no longer be censored.

  3. Happy to see East County will be represented by Jim Frazier in the Assembly and Mark DeSaulnier in the Senate. This is such a great thing for the area.

  4. Does Brentwood really have another four years of Bob Taylor? God help us as he needed to go. It’s a shame voters did not give Carissa Pillow more support, she would have been wonderful.

    • @ Tammy, Yep, 4 more years of Bob Taylor. Brentwood just shot itself in the foot then reloaded and did it again! He really needed to go, but most voters are disconnected and have no idea what a buffoon he is. I have no problem with Tayor making himself look stupid (he does it very well), but what really hurts is that he drags down Brentwood in doing so.

      It looks like it is 4 more years of the city council and staff covering for his blunders. What a shame.

  5. OK Burk, clear your desk off and get to work! You will have plenty to do.

    The voters of Antioch deserve what they got. Four do nothings who have no clue. This is a real tragedy for our fine city.

  6. Look at it this way Burk, you had more votes than your buddy Ron Borland. Keep up the good work because you are doing what the papers wont do which is actually report the news.
