Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Over a period of 40 years, Burton Brink has served the San Gabriel Valley, starting as young as 14 1/2 as a police explorer at the Arcadia Police Department. He became a reserve police officer in Monterey Park, and retired as a sergeant after 29 years with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Being a leader in the sheriff's department allowed him to take part in forging change and instituting improvements. Burton recognizes we need change here in California, on a large-scale level. He has consistently proven his commitment to doing the right thing for every resident in the community.
