City Council Reorganization

City Manager Michael Beck presented the outgoing District 4 councilman with his very own Steve Haderlein Field, made with loving hands by Michael and his children.

Monday was a bittersweet evening, full of fond farewells and new beginnings as the Pasadena City Council reorganized.

Mayor Bill Bogaard and Vice Mayor Victor Gordo presented Steve with photos of District 4 shot by the very talented Brian Biery:

Jane Haderlein and their daughters offered touching testimonials about their great husband and father, and the impact of his dedicated public service on their lives.

The meeting was adjourned and civilian Steve Haderlein joined his family in the audience.

Next the mayor called the meeting to order again, and it was time for the swearing in of newly elected and re-elected officials by City Clerk Mark Jomsky. From left are District 6 Councilman Steve Madison, District 4 Councilman Gene Masuda, District 2 Councilwoman Margaret McAustin, District 1 Councilwoman Jacque Robinson and Mayor Bogaard.

Mayor Bogaard presented Victor Gordo with a commemorative clock in appreciation of his two years of service as vice mayor.

The final order of business was the election of a new vice mayor. Congratulations to Margaret McAustin, who will lead council meetings and perform other duties whenever Mayor Bogaard is not available.

Everyone posed for a photo before heading home. (Missing is District 7 Councilman Terry Tornek, who was not able to be there.)
