Vice Mayor and a New Councilman
Last night I was elected by my City Council Colleagues as the new Vice Mayor of Long Beach. I am honored and excited to serve our city in this new role, and I look forward to working with Mayor Foster and the City Council on making Long Beach an even better place to live. I am very thankful to the Council for their support.
In addition, I want to congratulate and welcome our newest Councilmember, Al Austin. Al has been a long-time leader in our community and will be a great representative for North Long Beach, Bixby Knolls, and the surrounding communities. He has put together an excellent staff that I had a chance to meet yesterday. We wish him the very best and look forward to his leadership.
Finally, and most importantly, I want to thank all of you who have supported me and who continue to advocate passionately for the needs of our whole city. Without you, my job would be impossible. Your hard work and love for Long Beach are inspiring, and they are what enable all the great accomplishments we've seen in our community.
