You did a great job last night corralling our group and making us all look good. The number of people that showed up for our side was stunning and impressive.  And it mattered a lot.  I have never heard of such a huge group assembling for a Planning Commission meeting in Santa Monica. I overheard Commissioner Newbold say she hadn't seen anything like it in her four years on the commission. It happened because of your good work.  I feel very fortunate to be on your side of this project. It's fun to work with you. And I'd hate to have you working against me!  A personal 'THANK YOU' once again. I truly appreciate your commitment and diligent work on this project - we couldn't have done this without you!

Shiva  Aghiapour,  Huntley Hotel, Santa Monica




Sue -- You are a heroine of my election victory and I sing your praises!  Your effort to canvass and track the AVs (Absentee Voters) and send out mail follow ups was critical.  Thank you!

Congresswoman Jane Harman



Sue, the length of this short note in no way expresses the depth of my gratitude for all your help in getting me elected to Congress.  Your knowledge of campaign strategies and your execution of field operation with our volunteers were outstanding.

Congresswoman Diane Watson



Sue Burnside has done terrific work in grassroots organizing for my organization.  The folks at Burnside are Top Quality: Great Results, Personable, Creative.

Mr. Alva Johnson,  Director of Government Affairs/ Public Relations at Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians



In June 2010 our candidate Juan Vargas was 512 votes behind on Election night. We were nervous but the Burnside Team ran an brillant field program.  When I emailed Sue Burnside that night, she said don't worry, we are going to win but it will take a long time.  Six weeks after Election Day, Juan Vargas won the State Senate seat by 22 votes. 

Eric Robles, United Nurses Association of California



Sue, you  and your staff are so good at what you do.  You make even complex tasks and technical jargon SOUND easy, and you make us believe in ourselves more with your confidence. And you are just plain fun to work with! 
Laura Doll, Woodside Natural Gas



On behalf of the Morongo Band of Mission Indians, I want to express our deep appreciation for your efforts on our behalf in achieving our goal of getting our compact amendment ratified by the Legislature before the end of the 2007 legislative session.  I, and the Tribal Council, commend you on a job well done.

 Robert Martin, Chairman, Morongo Band of Mission Indians
