On March 2, 2010 Fernando Vizcarra was elected by Temple City City Council to continue serving as the city’s mayor.
Vizcarra was nominated at the city council meeting last Tuesday, and he was unanimously elected mayor just moments afterward.
Shortly thereafter, he spoke briefly about the first six months of his experience as mayor. Vizcarra expressed his sincere hopes for Temple City’s future as a community and commented on a few of the positive changes he has seen recently.
Among other things, he noted in front of a full audience in the council chambers that just a few years ago, very few people attended the council meetings regularly.
Once the mayor was finished speaking, the council moved on to select a mayor pro-tempore.
Councilmember Tom Chavez was nominated by Councilmember Cynthia Sternquist, and the sitting mayor pro-tempore, Vincent Yu, was nominated by then Councilmember Judy Wong. Chavez was elected to the position with a vote of 4-1, including the support of Yu.
The mayor was elected to the City Council in 2007. His term as mayor and councilman expires next March.
