Meet Burton Brink
My parents came to Arcadia in 1967. My mother was an architect and my father was in the refrigeration business. They built our house that I live in today. They were looking for a quiet and safe community to raise their family – this has been home ever since. My parents instilled in me the idea that my goals were attainable through hard work, honesty, and serving others. It is for those reasons, I dedicated my life to protecting the public.
With violent crime up 5.2% across Los Angeles County and a noticeable increase in property crimes here in the San Gabriel Valley, it has never been more important that we elect leaders who know what it takes to keep our community safe – that’s why the Professional Peace Officers Association representing over 8,700 law enforcement officers across Los Angeles County is supporting my campaign. Finally, I’ll fight to enhance transparency, so you can, more easily, hold your state’s government accountable and make it run more efficiently. Remember, when violent criminals are released early into your neighborhood, who are you going to call? A crime fighter or a politician?
I’m running for State Assembly so that I may continue to serve and fight for others to achieve the American dream.
I ask you for your vote and support.
"Ethics built by exemplary role models"
I started as Police Explorer with Arcadia Police Department in 1977. Later I was as a Reserve Police Officer with the Monterey Park Police Department in 1982. In 1989 I became a deputy with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
For the majority of my years in the department, I worked here in the San Gabriel Valley. I attained the rank of sergeant and subsequently retired after serving the people of Los Angeles County for 29 years.
In all, I have 40 years of experience proudly protected people like you, and your families.
"30+ years experience in serving the people of Los Angeles County"
I've proudly served the residents, business owners and visitors of Los Angeles County through my 30+ years as a law enforcement officer. I have proven my commitment to doing the right thing for every resident in our community. I care about our city and I want to make sure the traditions ingrained here continue forward in this and future generations.
I was awarded the "In the Line Of Duty" Award, the "Distinguished Service “Award and the "Legendary Lawman" Award from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
"A commitment to all members of The San Gabriel Valley"
I want to see our schools continue receiving the support they need to keep our kids engaged and inspired to become our future leaders.
Regardless of where you reside or conduct business here in the San Gabriel Valley, I will work for you.
I personally thank you for your time and endorsement for representing you in Sacramento. Please contact me should you have any questions or concerns.
