Overlooked numerous times, but not forgotten in 2014, Dr. David Gordon was elevated from Vice Mayor to Mayor at the annual Council Reorganization Meeting held each May 1.

Councilman Gary Bric nominated the longtime Councilman, and after a pause, received a second from Bob Frutos, who also gave some words of advice and caution to the new mayor. It was Frutos, elected last year to the City Council, who promised to make strides to be inclusive as he was sworn in and lived up to that promise.

Frutos then received a 5-0 vote to become the City’s next Vice Mayor.
