The San Gabriel City Council members last Tuesday selected Chin Ho Liao as the city’s new mayor and Kevin Sawkins as the new vice mayor.
Each year the council reorganizes in March and selects a new mayor and vice mayor by a majority vote. Liao will replace outgoing Mayor Jason Pu.
As Mayor, Liao will represent the city at scores of functions each week.
In a statement released by the city, Liao said he has many goals during his term as mayor, including improving city infrastructure, funding a new police facility, televising council meetings, alleviating traffic congestion, fostering a small business community on Valley Boulevard and continuing to engage the community with events and programs.
“As mayor, I hope to help foster a sense of inclusiveness in our community and celebrate the diversities in San Gabriel,” Liao said. “I am honored to have the opportunity to partner with city leadership and staff members to accomplish several important goals during my year as mayor.”
