Mayor Victor Gordo Nominates Council Members to Board Positions

PASADENA, Calif.—Mayor Victor Gordo has announced the nomination of two City Council members to fill vacancies on boards to represent the city, which will be considered by City Council at their Jan. 11 meeting.

Vice Mayor Andy Wilson has been nominated to serve on the Arroyo Verdugo Communities Joint Powers Authority (AVCJPA), which consists of the cities of Burbank, Glendale, La Cañada Flintridge, Pasadena and South Pasadena, and the unincorporated areas of Crescenta Valley/Montrose within Los Angeles County. The city councils and county approved the formation of the JPA and have begun work on the five-year funding plan for the JPA’s Multiyear Sub-regional Programs (MSP). This includes the AVCJPA’s plans to spend Measure M funds, a voter-approved sales tax measure to address homelessness.

District 6 Councilmember Steve Madison has been nominated to the Rose Bowl Operating Company. The mission of the Rose Bowl Operating Company is to return economic and civic value to the City of Pasadena by managing a world-class stadium and a professional quality golf course complex in a community-based environment.

“Each board and council member has a unique character and history, and the collaboration and communication will help us utilize our knowledge and expertise to maximize resources, achieve sustainable solutions, and advocate for our interests to improve the quality of life in our city,” states Mayor Gordo.
